  var bgObject={
    [
    'description': 'clear sky',

The last 2 properties haven't values
but why are you using brackets there?

@Arontbt It will always return word !== false (true) . And if word is false, it returns NaN

$.getJSON("https://api.darksky.net/forecast/ddb79a723468dc5748c73fd586408cdc/50,50", function(forcast) {
            console.log(forcast);
        });
Can someone tell me why this isn't outputting anything? I put the link straight into my adress bar and it works, but this doesn't output anything at all, no matter where I put it or call it in my program

can you help me with this
from an API i am receiving [1,2,3,4,[ 1,2,3,4,[ ]]] or [1,2,3,4,[ ]]
i) for [1,2,3,4,[ 1,2,3,4,[ ]]] i need

<sometag>
   <sometag>
   </sometag>
</sometag>

ii) for [1,2,3,4,[ ]]

<sometag>
</sometag>

What i mean by that I will always have an array which will have its 5th element also array, if the 5th element array length is 0 then i need simple tag else the tag must be nested.
these array values will be used as props with those tags in react

@MCTwoDigitZero I found the problem
its has to do with the darksky api not allowing open api's

var myArray = [["John", 23], ["dog", 3]];
myArray.pop(["John", 23]);
myArray.unshift(["Paul, 35"]);

My code isnt working?
Frank McCroy
@fmccroy
Jul 09 2017 01:15
Your quotes are different, just looking at your example. Does the 35 in the unshift need to be a string?
@John-freeCodeCamp You need to put it in as myArray.unshift(["Paul", 35]); Which is slightly different than what you showed us.

Jul 09 2017 01:25
@artoodeeto The issue with the code above is that the API only works over HTTP and the for loop needs to be < not <= :: for(var i=0; i<=bgImg.length; i++){
(trying to help avoid duplication of efforts here, as this question has been posted by @artoodeeto in multiple rooms)
Moisés Man
@moigithub
Jul 09 2017 01:26

@artoodeeto would be easier if instead of array.. u make a lookup table
object inside objects
u could use whatever data.weather[0].icon values have as key ie... lets supose that returns "rain"
soo u make ur lookup table like

  var bgImg=    { 
"rain":{
    'description': 'clear sky',
    'day_icon': '01d',
    'night_icon': '01n',
    'dayImg': 'https://unsplash.com/search/clear-sky?photo=-KUD807lwSo',
    'nightImg': 'https://unsplash.com/search/clear-sky?photo=ewzHvxHl-Ak'
  },
///... 
}

then u NO need a loop to get those img data
var img= bgImg[data.weather[0].icon]; should be enough

www.asciitable.com
A ascii code is 65
if u do 65-13 u get 52
String.fromCharCode(52) is "4"
www.rot13.com if u check here A should be decoded as N
Manuel Moya
@moyamanuel
Jul 09 2017 01:45
Right, I have my code set so it retrieves the char code value of each letter and subtracts 13 from it, then pushes it to an array.
Frank McCroy
@fmccroy
Jul 09 2017 01:46
@moyamanuel What happens if you get an “A” to decode? Subtracting 13 from that becomes a number. You need to figure out how to wrap around to the end of the alphabet and go from there.
Moisés Man
@moigithub
Jul 09 2017 01:46
soo.. A-1 should be Z
A-2 should be Y ...
A-13 should be N
u need to keep ur values on A-Z range...

cuz ajax is async
and for/loop is not
async means.. ur data will be available later.. cuz server request takes times to reply back
soo when ur ajax callback function gets called for loop already finished.. soo i dont have the "initial" value when ajax was called. but will have the last value
i === twitchArray.length

using twitchArray[i] ?

Ken Haduch
@khaduch
Jul 09 2017 02:53
@JoeTinnySpace - try it with let i = 0; instead of var i = 0; because using let makes the actual current value of the variable available in the closure. (That's an ES6 feature, if you don't know.) Try it and see if it works.

@2895388807 Your return statements are too early, they are breaking your loop. As soon as the program hits return, it breaks out of the loop and does not come back.
Ken Haduch
@khaduch
Jul 09 2017 03:05

@AlliBun - you conditional test is not written correctly - you have this: if (condition == snowy||blizzard||blowing snow && time == day) and you would have to have it fully written out as

if (condition == "snowy"||condition == "blizzard"||condition == "blowing snow" && time == day)

And I put your condition values in quotes, thinking that they might be string values? I didn't address the value for time == day... but you get the idea.

Ken Haduch
@khaduch
Jul 09 2017 03:06
@2895388807 - one thing that is wrong is contacts[i] === firstName - you have to be accessing the property contacts[i].firstName === firstName. That's a start.

@khaduch yeh
Frank McCroy

Jul 09 2017 03:07
@2895388807 Instead of using return in the loop, set a variable as a flag. After the loop, check to see if the flag changed, ie the property was found.
Ken Haduch
@khaduch
Jul 09 2017 03:07
You might have other problems besides that. Like mainly you have to use contacts[i] any place that you are referencing an object from the array. @2895388807

@2895388807

ok thx guys i try it
Ken Haduch
@khaduch
Jul 09 2017 03:09
@2895388807 - then you have to be a little more careful with how you are structuring your returns, but you should try to format that and properly indent the code blocks to make is more obvious what is going on.
@2895388807 - it is fine to return either the property, if you find it, or the "No such property", if you found a matching firstName but it didn't contain the property. One thing that trips a lot of people up is returning "No such contact" - you have to make sure that you get through the entire list of contacts before you can safely return that.
2895388807
@2895388807
Jul 09 2017 03:13
this question is so hard.
display no such contact
i think my problem in if(contacts[i].firstName===firstName)
Frank McCroy
@fmccroy
Jul 09 2017 03:19
@2895388807 You can’t just look at one name and return that it wasn’t found, you have to make it through the whole list. The same goes for the property.

Hey all! Maybe someone can help me with what I am doing this completely wrong. I am working on the cipher. Am I able to put an if statement in a loop? Below is my code. I have converted the string to an array of character numbers
function rot13(str) { // LBH QVQ VG!
  var map = Array.prototype.map;

  var charNums = map.call(str, function(x) { 
  return x.charCodeAt(0); 
});

  // iterate through Array except 
  return charNums;
}

// Change the inputs below to test
rot13("SERR PBQR PNZC");

@YesImChuck yes you can put a conditional inside a loop. So now that you have the array of character numbers what are you doing next?
Frank McCroy
@fmccroy
Jul 09 2017 03:22
@YesImChuck A simple answer is, yes you can put an if statement into a loop. You will probably need an if statement to figure out what to do with a character that is not a letter if you subtract 13 from it.
Chuck Wongus
@YesImChuck
Jul 09 2017 03:23
My plan is to iterate through the array for characters to add 13 if they are letters

Working with if statement and indexOf and having issues.
  var counter = 0;
  var indexLeft = 0;
  var indexRight = 0;
  for (i = 0; i < perms; i++) {
    for (j = 1; j < (str.length-1); j++) {
      indexLeft = Number(permArr[i][(j-1)]);
      indexRight = Number(permArr[i][(j+1)]);
      if (args[Number(permArr[i][j])].indexOf(indexLeft) === 0 || args[Number(permArr[i][j])].indexOf(indexRight) === 0 );
      counter++;
    }
    if (counter>0) {
      delete permArr[i];
    }
    counter = 0;
  }
The if statement keeps hitting the counter, even when the indexOf should be returning -1 for both comparisons
Two falses don't equal a true, correct?

so the first chunk of my program translates the inputs into an array of strings so an input like [580] would translate into ["500","80"]. the inner function ""translator" should take that string array match the corresponding values to their roman numeral counterparts so "500" would match with "D" and "80" would match with "LXXX". the ultimate goal is to have the complete function take an input and return an array of it's matching roman values (so ["500","80"] would return ["D","LXXX"] ). This is the roman numeral algorithm challenge I'm not interested in anyone posting the answer, that's not what I'm asking for, all I'm looking for is faults in my code that I could improve so that it could return what I want.
function convertToRoman(num) {
var nums = num.toString().split("");
  var  len = nums.length;
  var answer = nums.map(function(n,i){
    return n + (Array(len - i-1).fill(0)).join("");
  });
  var match =
function translator(id,answer){
var inputs ={ 
"1": "I",
 "2":"II",
"3":"III",
"4":"IV",
 "5":"V",
 "6":"VI",
"7": "VII",
 "8":"VIII",
 "9":"IX",
 "10":"X",
 "20":"XX",
"30":"XXX",
"40":"XL",
"50": "L",
"60":"LX",
 "70":"LXX",
"80":"LXXX",
"90":"XC",
"100":"C",
"200":"CC",
"300": "CCC",
"400":"CD",
"500":"D",
"600":"DC",
"700": "DCC",
"800":"DCCC",
"900": "CM",
 "1000": "M"};
  var response = [];
  for(var key in inputs){
if(answer.indexOf(key)!==-1){
  response.push(inputs[key]);
}}};
 return response;

@Rushh forEach is best used for a side-effects, have a variable not in the forEach scope, maybe global then assign the index to it
@Rushh then you can return it in the scope of your function and not the forEach callback scope
Luis
@Rushh
Jul 09 2017 06:34
Oh so it's similar to needing an IIFE in for loops? It's an issue with index no longer being defined?

Tried adding a global variable to track currentIndex but it's still not working. Weird because it is correctly logging out index when I added a console.log
It's just ignoring the if expressions
function getIndexOf(char, str) {
  // your code here
  var splitStr = str.split("");
  var maxIndex = splitStr.length - 1;
  var indexFound;

  splitStr.forEach(function(letter, index) {
    if (letter === char) {
      indexFound = index;
    } else if (maxIndex === index) {
      indexFound = -1;
    }
  });

  return indexFound;
}

getIndexOf('l', 'luis');
Now I'm getting -1 when I should get 0

@Rushh how about removing the else if statement

I need to return -1 if char is not found in the string
Ogundele Olumide
@Lumexralph
Jul 09 2017 06:46
@Rushh since you know that indexFound will always contain a value if it is in the string using for each, if there's no value, indexFound will be undefined, you can use ternary for that
@Rushh a simpler way initialize indexFound with -1
@Rushh so if there's not match it'll always be -1
@Rushh something like this
function getIndexOf(char, str) {
  // your code here
  var splitStr = str.split("");
  var maxIndex = splitStr.length - 1;
  var indexFound = -1;

  splitStr.forEach(function(letter, index) {
    if (letter === char) {
      indexFound = index;
    }
  });

  return indexFound;
}

getIndexOf('l', 'luis');
Ogundele Olumide
@Lumexralph
Jul 09 2017 06:52
@Rushh but what this function will do is that. it'll return the last index the char was found and not the first, if that order is included then you should think of how to hold on to the first match
Luis
@Rushh
Jul 09 2017 06:53
Oh I see
function getIndexOf(char, str) {
  // your code here
  var letters = str.split("");
  var indexFound;

  letters.forEach(function(letter, index) {
    console.log(letter, index);
    if (letter === char) {
      indexFound = index;
    }
  });

  if (indexFound >= 0) {
    return indexFound;
  }

  return -1;
}

getIndexOf('l', 'luis');
This works but I'm failing the tests. I'm going to email them and see if there is an issue with the tests they are using

@manuchehr94 return prop === pre;
this means you want every prop in obj to be same as pre
the first prop it finds, it's user, so returns false

If you downsize the browser width you will see a hamburger menu icon appear. This icon has position:absolute, and its parent is position: relative. If you click around the bottom of the hamburger instead of the menu appearing, you will go to an URL... This URL is set on the brand logo on the top center of the page... Doe anybody know how to fix this?

Hello!

Can anyone help me with removing class "open" from let dropDownMenu?
It doesn't work - in chrome dev tools I can still see that that .open is assigned.

I've also tried removing the class with classList.remove("open") - but it aslo doesn't work

let burgerMenu = document.querySelector(".burger-menu");
let dropDownMenu = document.querySelector(".nav-list");

burgerMenu.addEventListener("click", function(){

if (dropDownMenu.classList != "open") {
    dropDownMenu.classList.toggle("open", true);
} else {
    dropDownMenu.classList.toggle("open", false);
}

@ramarcinek you do not have to check if your menu has class of open, by using toggle it will automatically switch on and off
try without conditions, just use toggle('open')

@ramarcinek
Jul 09 2017 12:09
@alan2207 OK, I will try in a minute
@alan2207 Ok it works in 50%. How should I remove the class .open which was added after click event?
Alan Alickovic
@alan2207
Jul 09 2017 12:11
by clicking on it again, it will remove it if it is there, and add if it is not there
that is the point of toggle

Hey guys, can someone please tell me how I can limit how many times the group is matched?:
let repeatNum = "42 42 42";
let reRegex = /(\d+)\s\1\s\1/; // Change this line
let result = reRegex.test(repeatNum);
console.log(result);
It should only match the group 3 times
so "42 42 42 42" won't work
The above is the official solution in the docs but its still failing an assertion

@Sofeo .slice and Math
otherwise: while loop with 1 edge case in mind: a chunk of size 0
Ken Haduch
@khaduch
Jul 09 2017 13:20
@Sofeo - I would say a for loop with a loop count of i += size, and .slice...
Moisés Man
@moigithub
Jul 09 2017 13:21
slice manually.. find the correct indices.. then refactor with a loop @Sofeo
Luis Felipe López G.
@luishendrix92
Jul 09 2017 13:25
Mathematically, given a sequence of N items and an intended subsequence size of n, the number of subsequences of size n inside N is equal to Nn\lceil \frac{N}{n} \rceil
or Math.ceil(N/n)
then you can start a loop that goes from 0 to that number-1 and use it as an anchor for the slicing indices on every turn of the loop (involves more math and tinkering but you eventually get there)
but careful when n = 0, you need to guard against sizes <= 0
Sofus Heggemsens
@Sofeo
Jul 09 2017 13:35
@luishendrix92 can you exsplain that a little more simple?
Luis Felipe López G.
@luishendrix92
Jul 09 2017 13:36
I can't really explain the part where you actually slice and push the chunks since you gotta figure it your yourself
but what I can tell you is how to start if you want to take the math approach
imagine you have [1,2,3,4,5]
the length is 5, say you wanth the chunks to be of size 2
like I said, the number of chunks is determined by Math.ceil(list.length / chunkSize)
because you want to preserve the last item, .ceil will ignore the decimal and round it up to the nearest integer to the "top" (hence ceil)
5 / 2 = 2.5, ceiled = 3
which means you'll eventually get 3 chunks:
[1,2] [3,4] and [5]
Saif Ur Rahman
@saifsmailbox98
Jul 09 2017 13:38
The Math.ceil() function returns the smallest integer greater than or equal to a given number.
Math.ceil(2.5); // 3
Math.ceil(5); // 5
Luis Felipe López G.
@luishendrix92
Jul 09 2017 13:38
then you can start a loop that keeps track of the chunk number (starting from 0 up to 2 because of 3-1)
Saif Ur Rahman
@saifsmailbox98
Jul 09 2017 13:38
so your loop will run for i=0, i=1 and i=2, that is three times for three chunks
Luis Felipe López G.
@luishendrix92
Jul 09 2017 13:39
LOOP i=0 -> slice from 0 (inclusive) to 2 (non inclusive)
LOOP i=1 -> slice from 2 (inclusive) to 4 (non inclusive)
LOOP i=2 -> slice from 4 (inclusive) to 6 (non inclusive)
if you can find the pattern here, you're IN!
forther hints is solving it for you
Sofus Heggemsens
@Sofeo
Jul 09 2017 13:40
ok thanks for the help
@luishendrix92
Luis Felipe López G.
@luishendrix92
Jul 09 2017 13:40
.slice is failure safe so, slicing from 4 to 6 even if index 5 doesn't exist will yield just 1 item instead of [5, undefined]

@kpbro What values do you intend to extract out of it?
Kamal
@kpbro
Jul 09 2017 14:37
like if it is a then a.weather or a.main?
Sweet Coding :)
@SweetCodingInc
Jul 09 2017 14:38
right
Kamal
@kpbro
Jul 09 2017 14:38
all contents from main and wind
Sweet Coding :)
@SweetCodingInc
Jul 09 2017 14:39
a.main.temp will give you 293.25
a.main.humidity will give you 83
and so on
Kamal
@kpbro
Jul 09 2017 14:39
oh.. i see and if i use only a.main what it will return?
Sweet Coding :)
@SweetCodingInc
Jul 09 2017 14:39
a.main will be the entire object {"temp":293.25,"pressure":1019,"humidity":83,"temp_min":289.82,"temp_max":295.37}
Kamal
@kpbro
Jul 09 2017 14:40

@kpbro open ur BROWSER devtools(F12 on most browsers) /console tab and check if u have any errors
getCurrentPosition is async means results will be returned later...
soo when u call getJSON .. those variables u using (lat,lon) are NOT populated yet.. they dont have any values
u can easily check that using console.log("lat,lon are ",lat,lon) before ur getJSON

ur getJSON uses lat and lon values.. where do u have those values available ??
in other words.. move ur getJSON code inside getCurrentPosition callback

@Lumexralph
Jul 09 2017 15:43
@shashank1999coder check the name of your object and function
@shashank1999coder the interpreter picked the name of your function so using myObj and trying to access the hasOwnProperty method will return a TypeError, since it recognizes myObj but it doesn't have that method, so it can't perform that action. change the name of your function to something other than myObj
@shashank1999coder FCC gave the function another name

i have this code its not much because i have no idea. i googled and stackedoverflow and i get nothing.
//changing button to Fahrenheit or Celsius
    //change also the text of the btn according to unit
    function changeUnit(){

@kelechy when you created the instance raceName was also not a property in the instance bob

@overmelo

Here's an outline, if you follow it step-wise it'll help a great deal in telling you what to do or step you missed

1. you need a loop to pick each objects in the contacts array
    1.1  in the loop you need to 
         1.1.1  check if the objects picked has the firstName property equal to the firstName parameter
                  1.1.1.1 you need to check if it has a property prop
                                  return the value of prop in the object
                 1.1.1.2  return no such property if  1.1.1.1 is false
2.  when your loop is done looking through  contacts return no such contact
@kelechy
var bob = new Person();
bob.raceName = "date";
bob.greetExtraTerrestrials(); //'Welcome to Planet Earth date'
@kelechy or
sayFullName() { return this.firstName + ' ' + this.lastName }

    greetExtraTerrestrials (raceName) {
      return "Welcome to Planet Earth " + raceName
    }
}
var bob = new Person();
//bob.raceName = "date";
bob.greetExtraTerrestrials("date");  //'Welcome to Planet Earth date'

Is the only way to pull a specific object from a json array, is to go through a for loop? What happens when you have 1000s or 1000000s of objects in the json array? Does it just take a long time to get output?
//Setup
var contacts = [
    {
        "firstName": "Akira",
        "lastName": "Laine",
        "number": "0543236543",
        "likes": ["Pizza", "Coding", "Brownie Points"]
    },
    {
        "firstName": "Harry",
        "lastName": "Potter",
        "number": "0994372684",
        "likes": ["Hogwarts", "Magic", "Hagrid"]
    },
    {
        "firstName": "Sherlock",
        "lastName": "Holmes",
        "number": "0487345643",
        "likes": ["Intriguing Cases", "Violin"]
    },
    {
        "firstName": "Kristian",
        "lastName": "Vos",
        "number": "unknown",
        "likes": ["Javascript", "Gaming", "Foxes"]
    }
];


function lookUpProfile(firstName, prop){
// Only change code below this line
  for (c = 0; c < contacts.length; c++) {
    if (contacts[c].firstName === firstName) {
      if (contacts[c].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
        return contacts[c][prop];
      }
      else {
        return "No such property";
      }
    }
  }
  return "No such contact";
// Only change code above this line
}

// Change these values to test your function
lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");
That’s the code but I’d think there was some better way to pull a specific object based on the properly without a loop that could take a long time to run. Thoughts?

Jul 09 2017 17:47
@nsuchy No there is not. You do have to test each object to see if it fits your requirements. The same has to be done in databases - but they can create indices which make the lookup faster.

Oh, wasn’t sure, when I was doing the challenge and reading the hints, I was thinking it much be inefficient. I get that databases are a bit faster, but having to do a for loop with a bunch of checks to determine the number of the object, i wish there was like a search function or something to quickly find the object without writing out a loop. Loops have been one of the harder things for me to learn about.

In your case your best bet is to do what you did - loop over them all.
If you really would want to speed up the lookup if the amount was huge, would be to create in-memory indices for your data - and/or in some cases to sort your data in memory
@nsuchy Well you could use implicit loops - but that doesn't make it faster, rather slower

@nsuchy My solution:

function lookUp(firstName, prop){
  var contact = contacts.find(function(c) { return c.firstName === firstName; });
  if(!contact) return "No such contact";
  return contact[prop] || "No such property";
}

Its just easier to read / more efficient to write, but its not faster in any way regarding execution time

It’s a matter of both speed and ease of writing the code, imagine if each object has like 50 different properties, writing out that kinda loop with IF statements has got to be messy, has the industry found a solution yet, or is a lot of time spent on writing out those loops?

  // Only change code below this line.

  }
  return x;

  // Only change code above this line.

So when you leave the while, x MUST be !== 0

Ofc. your lookup will be damn fast when you use a Hashindex or a B+ Tree
A Hashindex gets very slow though if you run range queries

Nathaniel Suchy
@nsuchy
Jul 09 2017 17:58
@alpox Prefereably I’d be able to pull all objects with the same value in a specific property, though if I get two objects because they have the same property, I once again have to loop through those until I find the right one. It might save some time but in other cases make the code take even longer to run

@KsangwanA Are you talking about looping through an array and needing to stop at array.length-1 ? Arrays start at 0, whereas counting for length starts at 1. An array with length of 5 is really array[0], [1], [2],[3],[4] not array[5], which is how you get length-1.
Ashish Kumar Sangwan
@KsangwanA
Jul 09 2017 18:02
If you go to the challenge you'll see. I cannot understand the zero - based numbering system according to which the last index of the array is length -1.
alpox
@alpox
Jul 09 2017 18:03
@Lumexralph B+ indexes are special memory-trees with nodes on several tree levels - where each node holds a number of pointers/value pairs. The values are only values from one property of the data and sorted in the index/nodes. The values in the nodes indicate some kind of datastep where if the value you are looking for is lower than the value you see in the current node index, you have to go left down the tree, else you have to go right through the pointer/value pairs and follow the pointer to the next value if the value you are looking for is smaller than the value indicated in the node.
The B+ tree is always balanced too
Its quite some effort to build it :-)
But it pays out and is very often used in databases. Its a self-balancing multi-level memory-index which makes it very strong

@alpox special memory-trees with nodes on several tree levels more like DOM tree

@Lumexralph Hmm not really. Well, sure the DOM is also a tree, but there are very different kinds of trees which serve very different purpose :D

var arr = [“a”, “b”, “c”, “d”];
for (i=0; i <= arr.length-1; i++){
console.log(“Position “ + i + “ is value “ + arr[i]);}
So the length of arr is 4, but to loop through it you get arr[0], arr[1], arr[2], arr[3] and then you stop. That shows your 4 values of arr.

Hello everyone!!!
Currently I’m working on this exercise.
So, as a solution for my problem I wrote the following code :
```function bouncer(arr) {
// Don't show a false ID to this bouncer.
return arr.filter(function(index){
return !isNaN(index) && index !== false && index !== null && index !== 0 && index !== "" && index !== undefined;
});
}

bouncer([7, "ate", "", false, 9]);```
which is not working as I want.
Can anyone here explain me why is it not working ?

Jul 09 2017 18:57
@AlliBun We can't compare arrays like [1000,1] == [1000,1], so you have to convert it to a string:
    weathercode = weathercode.toString();
    switch (weathercode) {
        case '1000,1': //sunny day
            background = 'https://photos-5.dropbox.com/t/2/AACLQzhNuU0ECNpAzLaldaSZM4brTNG4ezzenHgElliOQQ/12/683728763/jpeg/32x32/1/_/1/2/sunny%60.jpg/EOK_4s0FGNsHIAIoAg/oIgE_a6RWTLWIyfB9oqXwEGQ-SqSaquQ4vA0XmK5-5E?size=1280x960&size_mode=3';
            break;
Try using an object instead of using a switch statement - it will make this part of your code cleaner and easier to manage

@JemalMoha it's because str1.pop()also changes the length of the str1 array
and if you do i < str1.length, it will only continue the loop as long as this condition is true
look at the console logs
in every iteration of the loop, i increases and str1.length decreases, until the time when i < str1.length is no longer true

@artoodeeto Try using padding
@artoodeeto Just use "margin: -1%;" or "padding: -1%;"
@artoodeeto You could also use pixels instead of percents, but percents help on smaller screens.

how would I make it so that the temperature display changes based on the radio box selected?

if(document.getElementById('F').checked) {
  $('#temp').text(result.current.temp_f + '°F')
}
else if(document.getElementById('C').checked) {
  $('#temp').text(result.current.temp_c + '°C')
}

this is what I have, but it is not working

@AlliBun probably should use the onchange event handler
inside that you can check what the value is with .checked
and display accordingly

  var element = obj[key];
  console.log(element);
  console.log(element[index]);
