Hi, somevody knows how can I use a global variable from a function?
Nazar Maksymchuk
@MANTENN
May 26 2017 00:12
because it says not a number so numbers turn in false

@canoid since you want to reuse the code, put it in side
because then youll have to otherwise set it equal to 0
@canoid it's perfect - that's how its used
your's is not reset

  }
  // Only change code above this line
}

// Add/remove calls to test your function.
// Note: Only the last will display
cc(2); cc(3); cc(4); cc(5); cc(6);

that's how I did it
because you are not returning the proper value fcc expects

can anyone help me with the palindrome challenge?
Nazar Maksymchuk
@MANTENN
May 26 2017 00:28
@Invisii compare the inverse of the string and make sure its lower case/
here is the regex
/[^0-9A-Z]/gi, ""
So if I input mom and it flips it, it will be mom return true else false

@Invisii


function palindrome(str) {
  return str.replace(/[^0-9A-Z]/gi, "").toLowerCase() === str.replace(/[^0-9A-Z]/gi, "").toLowerCase().split('').reverse().join('') ? true : false;
}



palindrome("eye");

That's how I did it

@Invisii
function palindrome(str) {
  var pal = str.replace(/[^a-zA-z]+/, "").toLowerCase();
  if(pal.split("").reverse().join("") == pal)  {return true;
} else {
return false;
}
}

I'm a bit stuck on this, Testing Objects for Properties challenge, my problem I believe is Im not entering the correct return statement could someone help? Here is my code.
// Setup
var myObj = {
gift: "pony",
pet: "kitten",
bed: "sleigh"
};

function checkObj(checkProp) {
// Your Code Here
myObj.hasOwnProperty();
return "";
}

// Test your code by modifying these values
checkObj("gift");

The example doesn't actually show any return statement
Nazar Maksymchuk
@MANTENN
May 26 2017 00:44
@Invisii regex needs to remove the other special characters its letters and numbers only, no spaces
Invisii
@Invisii
May 26 2017 00:44
@CyberBrick you need to check if the object has the property with .hasOwnProperty, and if it does, you need to return the value of that property
Anker
@ankerpeet
May 26 2017 00:45
@MANTENN its supposed to return an array that filters out all Falsy values
Invisii
@Invisii
May 26 2017 00:45
@MANTENN is it not removing spaces?
Nazar Maksymchuk
@MANTENN
May 26 2017 00:46
@Invisii yes
/[^0-9A-Z]/gi
this solves your problem

Joseph
@revisualize
May 26 2017 01:48
@MANTENN I don't either. But, I'd rather work through the problem and help someone learn instead of just giving them the answer. But, my personal opinion is just that... mine.
I don't gift away answers. Studies have shown that giving people answers to problems instills an illusionary sense of learning. Because, it only puts information into short-term memory. Of which people think they are learning. Only through a little struggle and repetition that the human brain puts things into long-term memory. I don't know what their end goal is. I don't know if they want to do this as a personal project, hobby, or if they want to move into industry. Because of this, I strongly feel that working with people to allow them to solve problems on their own is a far better outcome than giving away answers. But, others clearly don't agree with my methods for helping people learn.

he had a problem with the loop like I had
because the if was inside which return ed no such property and the first run; thus terminating the loop

Do I have to define what the wordBlanks (myNoun,myAdjective, etc) are before I build the string?
Joseph
@revisualize
May 26 2017 03:00

@RyanHuang06 You have to assign 'FirstLine newline backslash SecondLine backslash carriage-return ThirdLine' to the variable myStr.
But, You have to replace the escape words with the proper escape sequences. (And per the instructions: remove all spaces.)
How do you escape a newline? With: \n
How do you escape a backslash? With: \\
How do you escape a carriage-return? With \r
So, you have break the problem down.
FirstLine newline backslash SecondLine backslash carriage-return ThirdLine
FirstLine \n backslash SecondLine backslash carriage-return ThirdLine
FirstLine \n \\ SecondLine backslash carriage-return ThirdLine
FirstLine \n \\ SecondLine \\ carriage-return ThirdLine
FirstLine \n \\ SecondLine \\ \r ThirdLine
You have to follow the instructions and remove all of the spaces
Then assign that to myStr as a string.

This lesson is not trying to teach you how to get some green check marks to pass onto the next lesson. It is trying to teach you a really valuable skill. If you have a string in JavaScript that is instantiated with double quotes (") (Example: var myStr = "Hello World";) you can also instantiate a string with single quotes (') (Example: var myStr = 'Hello World';)

How do you add a " to that string? Let's say you instantiated the string with double quotes and you want to put in a quote that someone said. You have to use an escape character.
Example: var myQuote = "Happy Feet said, \"I really like the rhythm.\"";
Or what happens if you want to add a tab to your string? You can't really add 3 spaces and expect it to show up as a tab. You have to use the escape character for a tab (\t).

OR let's say your trying to output a bunch of text and paragraphs within your JavaScript string. You can't really just make a bunch of variables.
var myParagraph1 = "a bunch of characters";
var myParagraph2 = "a bunch more characters";
I mean you could... but, why not just:
var myStr = "A bunch of characters/sentences.\nThe second paragraph of characters and sentences.";

@Zacele you can either assign a new variable to the returned filtered values or, re-assign the arr. (i personally suggest the 1st)

function filterNumbersFromArray(arr) {
  // Write the code that goes here
  return arr.filter(function(x){ .  // here I can just return the filtered values
    return typeof x ==='number';
  });
}

var arr = [1, 'a', 'b', 2];  //global variable
var x = filterNumbersFromArray(arr);
console.log(x)
/* or if you want to reassign:
* arr = filterNumbersFromArray(arr);
*/

}

[1,2,3].filter(filterN); // [1,2,3]
[1, 'a', 2, 'b'].filter(filterN) // [1,2]

@Zacele does this:

    return typeof x ==='number' && x%1 === 0;
  });
}

and this:

function filterN(x) {
  return typeof x === 'number'
}

seems the same to you?

In the second case I wrote a function that the filter method will use to test each element of the array against.
Look at the docs!

tryed realy hard to use a "for" loop, but after hours i gave up and did the "hard" way, passed the test but it's really limited... any thoughts on how to solve this loop?

function destroyer(arr) {
  var seeker = arguments;
  var newArr = [];
  var test = "";
   arr = arr.filter(function (destroyer) {
     return destroyer != seeker[1] && destroyer != seeker[2] && destroyer != seeker[3];
    /*for (var i=1; i<seeker.length; i++){
      if (destroyer !== seeker[i]){
        newArr.push(destroyer);
      } 
    }*/
  });
  return arr;
}

destroyer([3, 5, 1, 2, 2], 2, 3, 5);

@kthor if you use the arguments expression it will return the arguments of the nearest function (in that case the filter function) you need to transform the arguments you want into a array or assign it to a var.

@AerospaceEngineerBadAss all the criteria evaluates to true
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss you don't need the duplicate assignments you can just add var to the lower three

hello, I dont understand why firt function work but the second one doesn't work: const flatten = arr => arr.reduce(
(acc, val) => acc.concat(
Array.isArray(val) ? flatten(val) : val
),
[]
);

function flatten(arr){
arr.reduce(function(acc, val){
acc.concat(Array.isArray(val)?flatten(val) : val);
},[]);
};

@asaganda you're on track
Nick Forlivio
@whackdev
May 26 2017 04:30
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss I figured it out
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss the problem is the if condition, and the split method
Alexey M
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss
May 26 2017 04:31
@whackdev what did you see, i'm thinking it has to do that i'm always over riding the last value

May 26 2017 04:31
const flatten = arr => arr.reduce(
  (acc, val) => acc.concat(
    Array.isArray(val) ? flatten(val) : val
  ),
  []
);

 function flatten(arr){
     arr.reduce(function(acc, val){
         acc.concat(Array.isArray(val)?flatten(val) : val);
     },[]);
 };
can somebody explain to me why the first function work well but the second doesn't work.
Nick Forlivio
@whackdev
May 26 2017 04:31
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss it is it's the last value because of the split
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss you can do it without that completely
Markus Ivancsics
@ivancsicsmarkus
May 26 2017 04:32
@skywards1910 the second one is a function. You have to call it: flatten(arrName) (arrName here is arr)
Alexey M
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss
May 26 2017 04:32
@whackdev would it be ok to share your code so that i can glimpse it
Nick Forlivio
@whackdev
May 26 2017 04:33
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss try starting with the two variables:
  var base = arr[0].toLowerCase();
  var sub = arr[1].toLowerCase();
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss then compare them with the indexOf method
Andrew Saganda
@asaganda
May 26 2017 04:34

@Lumexralph is this a valid statement:

if (firstName === contacts[i].firstName && prop === contacts[i].hasOwnProperty[prop]) {
      return contacts[i].firstName[prop];
    }

?

Alexey M
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss
May 26 2017 04:34
i see what you did, i'll try that now, still don't fully understand why that would make a difference
Jacky
@skywards1910
May 26 2017 04:34
@ivancsicsmarkus i know that. I mean when I invoke function: flatter(arrName). The first work, the second does not work.
Nick Forlivio
@whackdev
May 26 2017 04:35
@AerospaceEngineerBadAss because the splice returns another array by the seporator and you are using a string to compare but you just need to compare the two items your are provided
Markus Ivancsics
@ivancsicsmarkus
May 26 2017 04:35
@skywards1910 add a line (maybe):
function flatten(arr){
     arr.reduce(function(acc, val){
         acc.concat(Array.isArray(val)?flatten(val) : val);
         return acc;
     },[]);

@Lumexralph i'm definitely missing something..I added more to the code but i know it's not solving it
for (var i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
    if (firstName === contacts[i].firstName && prop === contacts[i].hasOwnProperty[prop]) {
      return contacts[i].firstName[prop];
    }
  }

  return "no such contact"
Jacky
@skywards1910
May 26 2017 04:40
@ivancsicsmarkus No, you must see definition of 'Array.prototype.reduce' function. I don't understand different when using arrow (=>) and anonymous function in here
Markus Ivancsics
@ivancsicsmarkus
May 26 2017 04:40
@asaganda this would return: contacts[i]’s firstName’s property. You have to return contact[i]’s property.
@skywards1910 Could you give me an array to test?
Ogundele Olumide
@Lumexralph
May 26 2017 04:41
@asaganda when you check if firstName parameter is equal to firstName property you need another condition nested to check if that object has a property prop.... if true you return the value of that prop in the object but if it's not true you return no such property as required
Jacky
@skywards1910
May 26 2017 04:41
@ivancsicsmarkus full source code from mozilla :
var sum = [0, 1, 2, 3].reduce(function(acc, val) {
  return acc + val;
}, 0);
// sum is 6

var list1 = [[0, 1], [2, 3], [4, 5]];
var list2 = [0, [1, [2, [3, [4, [5]]]]]];

const flatten = arr => arr.reduce(
  (acc, val) => acc.concat(
    Array.isArray(val) ? flatten(val) : val
  ),
  []
);

 // function flatten(arr){
     // arr.reduce(function(acc, val){
         // acc.concat(Array.isArray(val)?flatten(val) : val);
     // },[]);
 // };

console.log(flatten(list1)); // returns [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
flatten(list2); // returns [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

@Lumexralph
May 26 2017 04:42
@asaganda then you must allow your loop to be done looking through contacts array before returning no such contact

@PhoenixFarhan
May 26 2017 05:54

this still does not work; The function should check if firstName is an actual contact's firstName and the given property (prop) is a property of that contact.

If both are true, then return the "value" of that property.

If firstName does not correspond to any contacts then return "No such contact"

If prop does not correspond to any valid properties then return "No such property"

Markus Kiili
@Masd925
May 26 2017 06:20
@noelachica That array is stored in the parameter arr and rest of the arguments you need to get from the arguments object.
arguments[0] is the same as arr.
noelachica
@noelachica
May 26 2017 06:21
Yes but all are inside arr
no

@noelachica No.

I already did that, and it turns out that it takes the first value!, And I think the same as you
Markus Kiili
@Masd925
May 26 2017 06:22
@noelachica You need to use the arguments object. Read up on it.
One parameter catches only one argument.
noelachica
@noelachica
May 26 2017 06:22
But then it is called distinct from arr?
Markus Kiili
@Masd925
May 26 2017 06:23
@noelachica Using arr is not enough. It only stores the first passed argument. On that call arr would be [1,2,3,1,2,3]
noelachica
@noelachica
May 26 2017 06:24
How would it be then?
Markus Kiili
@Masd925
May 26 2017 06:24
arguments[1] would be 2 and arguments[2] would be 3.

jmariomejiap

@noelachica your function has only one parameter declared or expected (which is an array) but using the arguments object the function can access more arguments.

And how to access those arguments that I'm flipping
Markus Kiili
@Masd925
May 26 2017 06:26
@noelachica You can use arguments[i] and arguments.length. It is an array-like object.

May 26 2017 06:26
arr.from ¿
jmariomejiap
@jmariomejiap
May 26 2017 06:26
@noelachica so you can select those "arguments" like you would in an array.... literally arguments[1]
Markus Kiili
@Masd925
May 26 2017 06:26
@noelachica It is also possible to turn the arguments object into an array.
noelachica

@noelachica arr is the parameter you specified, so when ever you have only two inputs you want be able to access it with a parameter instead youll need to use arguementssince its an array you use dot notation to access an array, the second arguement would be
arguements[1]

@noelachica You need to loop arr from index 0.

May 26 2017 06:41
From 0 arr why?
Nazar Maksymchuk
@MANTENN
May 26 2017 06:42
@noelachica its because the loop starts at 0, to access the first item in array you need to use 0 second 1 and so on
Markus Kiili
@Masd925
May 26 2017 06:42
@noelachica On this call destroyer([1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3], 2, 3) the arr would be [1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3]. You need to check all the array elements, so loop arr from index 0.

wordBlanks("dog", "big", "ran", "quickly") should contain all of the passed in words separated by non-word characters (and any additional words in your madlib).
wordBlanks("cat", "little", "hit", "slowly") should contain all of the passed in words separated by non-word characters (and any additional words in your madlib).
  • You will need to use string operators to build a new string, result, using the provided variables: myNoun, myAdjective, myVerb, and myAdverb.

  • You will also need to use additional strings, which will not change, and must be in between all of the provided words. The output should be a complete sentence.

Code:
function wordBlanks(myNoun, myAdjective, myVerb, myAdverb) {
var result = "";
// Your code below this line

// Your code above this line

// Change the words here to test your function

window.twttr = (function(d, s, id) {
    var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],
    t = window.twttr || {};
    if (d.getElementById(id)) return t;
    js = d.createElement(s);
    js.id = id;
    js.src = "https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";
    fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);

    t._e = [];
    t.ready = function(f) {
      t._e.push(f);
    };

    return t;
  }(document, "script", "twitter-wjs"));
});
can we use on change to see how it changes?

@tiagocorreiaalmeida Two parts.

  1. For certain values of card, increment or decrement global variable count
  2. Return a string built from count and either Bet or Hold, depending on value of count. There should be one space between number and word.

Do not mix the two parts.

@tiagocorreiaalmeida Stand in Line
In Computer Science a queue is an abstract Data Structure where items are kept in order. New items can be added at the back of the queue and old items are taken off from the front of the queue.

Write a function nextInLine which takes an array (arr) and a number (item) as arguments. Add the number to the end of the array, then remove the first element of array. The nextInLine function should then return the element that was removed.

@Blauelf it changes the button and assigns a new id called b
but it then get's overwritten :\
document.getElementById('b').href="https://twitter.com/tweet?text=" + tweetText; should work but they have a listener I can see it - my theory
they could use event capturing.

@JeremySchade You should use arr (an array) and item (a soon-to-be array element) within the function, and not at all do recursive calls (calling the same function again). Also, functions need some parentheses to be called...

@arjav2002 First you symDiff the first two and then the result with the third etc.
[1, 2, 5], [2, 3, 5], [3, 4, 5] -> [1,3],[3,4,5] -> [1,4,5]

May 26 2017 09:05
@arjav2002 Combine them pairwise, in any order, like sym(arr1, arr2, arr3) equals sym(arr1, sym(arr2, arr3)) or sym(sym(arr1, arr2), arr3) or sym(arr2, sym(arr3, arr1)) or any combination (23!=122\cdot3!=12 variations possible in this case)

@Blauelf okay, but acc in defined only inside the function.
Blauelf
@Blauelf
May 26 2017 09:31
@saifsmailbox98 If you don't provide that argument, reduce uses the first array element and starts the loop at the second. Which does or does not make much of a difference, depending on case. Without an explicit initial value, reduce cannot process empty arrays.
@saifsmailbox98 acc receives some value when the callback is called by reduce.
Markus Kiili
@Masd925
May 26 2017 09:33
@saifsmailbox98 You don't call that callback function. You give it to reduce and it uses it under the hood during the iteration.

@yanekyuk Or, a bit more cryptic than explicitly stating letters and digits, you could combine non-word characters \W (essentially like [^0-9A-Za-z_]) with an underscore, like [\W_] or \W|_.

Hello! :)

var Bike = function(){
var gear = 1;

this.setGear = function(change){
    gear += change;
};

this.getGear = function(){
    return gear;
};

};

var myCar = new Car();

var myBike = new Bike();

What can be wrong? I cannot pass the challenge.

@yanekyuk I think I wanted to escape the special characters. For example, in a set, - defines a range.

var array= []

would this also work or does this just do the same thing as before

@yanekyuk )-/ is very different from )\-/ in that the first version defines a range from ) to /, while the second lists three characters.

@yanekyuk As / are used to limit the regular expression literal, at least in theory they should not appear within the expression.

@punyparker I meant the night mode. I have it switched on, while @Masd925 has not. And the view is based on the user's settings, not yours, which I find really odd.

@vivekmittal7 prototype is an old javascript method for declaring classes
Blauelf
@Blauelf
May 26 2017 09:58

@vivekmittal7 Should be String.prototype (it's an object that all string objects know, if you say str.charCodeAt, str does not have any charCodeAt property, so it's searched for in the prototype chain, and found at String.prototype)

When calling a function as a method, the this object is set to the object you call the method on. str.charCodeAt(i) would call String.prototype.charCodeAt with this set to str and an argument of i.

Hey, can anyone help with this? I originally had it working - added the else statement and now I am getting nothing but errors!m
function getFirstPython(list) {
  var list1 = [];
  while (i = 0; i < list1.length; i++) {
  if (list1[i].language === 'Python') {
    return list1[i].firstName + ", " + list1[i].country;
} else { 
  return "No Python";
}
}
console.log(getFirstPython());

@punyparker CodePen were pretty proud of being able to provide their service all over HTTPS, but sadly API providers not necessarily like encryption for some reason (yes, encryption needs a few more resources, but main problems come with setting up an infrastructure with many names over one IP address). If you pay for the services, then most do provide an encrypted API endpoint, though. Kindof "freemium".

I'm stuck on counting cards lesson, I think the variable number is resetting? my code is

var count = 0;

function cc(card) {
  // Only change code below this line
  if (card == 2,3,4,5,6) {
    return count + 1 + " Bet";
  } else if (card == 7,8,9){
    return count + 0 + " Hold";
  } else if (card == 10, 'J', 'Q', 'K', 'A') {
    return count - 1 + " Hold";
  } else 

  return "Change Me";
  // Only change code above this line
}

// Add/remove calls to test your function.
// Note: Only the last will display
cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc('K'); cc('A');

Okay thank you. I'll try and figure it out
Blauelf
@Blauelf
May 26 2017 10:05
@fxceptioN There are two parts that should be kept separate.
  1. For certain values of card, increment or decrement global variable count
  2. Return a string built from count and either Bet or Hold (solely depending on value of count and not at all on card), with one space between number and word.
Vivek
@vivekmittal7
May 26 2017 10:06
@fxceptioN you need to write your code in a way so that it adds +1 to value of count every time cc() is below 7 and -1 when it is more than 9

@Blauelf
May 26 2017 10:06

@fxceptioN Basically, yes. You could however use a similar if-elseif structure for the first part. And a separate if-else (or ternary operator) for the second part.

There are many ways to solve that one, an if-elseif chain (maybe using || to combine multiple comparisons, or define ranges, or use indexOf on an array of cards) is one way, others use switch like in Multiple Identical Options in Switch Statements, I used maths instead (ugly implicit type conversions included)
