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.
class TodoList attr_reader :name, :todo_items def initialize(name) @name = name @todo_items =  end def add_item(name) todo_items.push(TodoItem.new(name)) end def contains?(name) todo_items.include?(name) end def find_index(name) index = 0 found = false todo_items.each do |item| found = true if item.name == name break if found index += 1 end if found return index else return nil end end end
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.
