Do comparison on Javascript object properties and return the rating property

I am doing a simple javascript project where i got an array of objects... and each object has its own properties which include (title)string, rating(int), I have code here that does the comparisons but prints the whole array elements in an ascending manner, Is there a way to make it print the highest value from the comparisons? var fractured={ //Properties title:"Fractured", release:2019, rating:8, format:"digital", genre:[ "Mystery","Sci-Fi","Western"] }; var countdown={ title:"Countdown", release:2018, rating:5, genre:["Sci-Fi","Mystery","Western"] } var bloodshot={ title:"Bloodshot", release:2020, rating:6, format:"digital", genre:["Sci-Fi","Action"] } var nmovies=new Array(fractured,life,crisis,revenant,bloodshot,countdown); //Sorting the movies by rating console.log(nmovies.sort((a, b) => { if (a.rating < b.rating) return -1; if (a.rating > b.rating) return 1; return 0; }));

You need to swap the condition in your sort callback if (a.rating > b.rating) return -1; if (a.rating < b.rating) return 1; return 0;

Alright then ... 👌 I assume you're accessing SoloLearn through the web? cause in the app, each post has a menu to its right, which we use to edit, or delete a post (an FYI).

It's yours, I have zero access to it. Try and see for a menu buttonz something like hamburger menu to the right of your post ... Still not clear whether you were searching for highest rating or sorting in descending order by rating though.

I don't understand what you mean by "give me that number which is the highest from the rating" Are you into sorting or searching anyways?

if u sort them properly the first element of the array should be the highest: here var fractured={ //Properties title:"Fractured", release:2019, rating:8, format:"digital", genre:[ "Mystery","Sci-Fi","Western"] }; var countdown={ title:"Countdown", release:2018, rating:5, genre:["Sci-Fi","Mystery","Western"] } var bloodshot={ title:"Bloodshot", release:2020, rating:6, format:"digital", genre:["Sci-Fi","Action"] } var nmovies=new Array(fractured,bloodshot,countdown); //Sorting the movies by rating nmovies.sort((a, b) => { if (a.rating < b.rating) return 1; if (a.rating > b.rating) return -1; return 0; }); for(var i=0; i<nmovies.length ;i++){ console.log(nmovies[i].rating+" "+nmovies[i].title); }
