I am not sure why this method is not passing, appreciate any suggestions.
Need to fill in the contains? method to return a boolean value if the todo_item array contains the name argument.
attr_reader :name, :todo_items
@name = name
@todo_items = 
index = 0
found = false
todo_items.each do |item|
found = true if item.name == name
break if found
index += 1
As Johnson Report pointed out, the
todo_items array will be of
TodoItem objects, not strings. The simplest way to solve this would be by using the
find_index method already defined in the class.
Alternatively, if you wanted to skip ahead a little, you could look at using the any? method on Enumerable, which is similar to
include? but allows you to specify a block to determine if an object in the array matches your criteria.
