JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Tracking Data Using Objects The Student Record Search Challenge Solution

my solution to the extra work he mentioned:

here is my code:

//Make Records searchable //Open Dialog box and request name of students //If theres a match print out the student data // If not not display a not found alert and ask again.

var message = ""; var results = 0;

while (true) { var search = prompt("Type Name Of Student:") search = search.toLowerCase();

if (search === null || search === "quit") { break; }

findName(search); if ( results > 0 ) { if (results < 2){ alert("We found " + results + " result!"); } else { alert("We found " + results + " results!"); } print(message); break; } else { alert("We found no results, Try again!"); }

}

function findName(input) { for (var i=0 ; i < students.length ; i++) { if (students[i].name.toLowerCase() === input) { for (var key in students[i]) { message += "<li>" + key + ": " + students[i][key] + "</li>"; } results++; } } }

function print(message) { document.getElementById("output").innerHTML = message; //the "output" is is the container where i want my files printed

}
