Issue With the Javascript Arrays

Hi,

I have attached the script. What I am trying to do is specified in the comments in the script.

Below are the comments that I specified in the script.

     //check if the pre-built  dashboard items array has a projectdesc that matches the projectName and then build the table row by passing Project Name and projectURL, projectstatuslabel to the getProjectRow function

//Here how do I iterate through dashboard items array to check if there is a matching projectdesc whose string value is equal to ProjectName inside this for loop?

i need to iterate through the dashboard array and find a matching description of the value in the for loop and then get the remaining properties of the object.

Please let me know if this is not clear.

Updated and commented the For loop from your script, give this a try:

for (var i = 0; i < data.d.results.length; i++) {
	var projectName = data.d.results[i].Title;
	var projectURL = data.d.results[i].ProjectURL;

	//set matcheditem var to array of dasboardItems objects filtered by matching projectdesc to projectName
	var matcheditem = $.grep(dashboardItems, function(n){
		return n.projectdesc == projectName;
	});
	
	//check length of resulting matcheditem array from above.
	//if > 0, call getProjectRow using first item in matcheditem array.
	if(matcheditem.length > 0) {
		getProjectRow(projectName, projectURL, matcheditem[0].projectstatuslabel);
	}
	
}
