I am trying to check if the value in the input is Array.
This is working great if the input is an array, but if the input is not an array, I get JSON errors: Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token s in JSON at position 0
Any other solutions that won't throw errors and keep the code working so if it's a different input I can render something else?
function App() {
const [input, setinput] = React.useState("");
const handleSubmit = (event) => {
let parsed = JSON.parse(input);
let condition = Array.isArray(parsed);
if(condition === true){

const { data } = await ...
Use this in 108 and 97 lines.
Your promise object has a data element. Currently, you are accessing your data element using dot (.) syntax. ( Your promise is returning data).
You can use object destructuring to directly access the data element from inside your promise object
const { data } = (await this.$api.auth.sighIN({
password: this.form.password,

I am trying to update my array state with a list of records I am getting from an API, I am trying it as follows:
const [record, setRecord] = useState([])
const addRecords= async ()=>{
const apiResult = await apicall()
setRecord(record.length ? [...apiResult, ...record] : apiResult)
however every time the api is called is overwritting my 'record' with the last items added from the api instead of putting them together.
I also tried using .concat() with same result
const addRecords=async()=>{
const apiResult = await apicall()
setRecord(record.concat(apiResult ? apiResult:[])
there is sth here I am not managing to understand, hope someone can clarify what can it be.
I think you want to use a function in your setter to get your previous value (I dont understand enough to give you the reason why, but I think it has something to do with your record being a frame or two out of date)
const addRecords=async()=>{
const apiResult = await apicall()
//prevRecord is more recent than record (I think)
setRecord(prevRecord=>prevRecord.concat(apiResult || [])

Javascript: Create dictionary from array of strings [duplicate]

ECMAScript 6 arrow function that returns an object
(6 answers)
Closed 3 years ago.
I have an array of strings that I get from an endpoint and I need to convert it to key-value pairs for the frontend to display them correctly. I have tried different concepts such as reduce and map but have not been able to get it working successfully. I assume it might be one-liner for someone familiar with FE but has taken forever for a BE person like me.
Here is what I have tried:
var input = ['quiz1', 'quiz2'];
const mapping = => {"id":x, "label":x};);
I am expecting an output of the format
[{"id":"quiz1", "label":"quiz1"}, {"id":"quiz2", "label":"quiz2"}]
Thanks for looking!
It's simply two syntax errors:
var input = ['quiz1', 'quiz2'];
const mapping = => ({"id":x, "label":x}));
Firstly, no semicolon in a un-braced arrow function body.
This is invalid: (() => 3;). This is valid: (() => 3).
Secondly, wrap return obj in ().
This is invalid: () => {x: 3}. This is valid: () => ({x: 3}).

I want to get the value from array. It shows Type error. The code is
var user = "username6";
var result = categories.filter(x => x.user)[0].user;
TypeError: Cannot read property 'user' of undefined
But it work in
var result = categories.filter(x => x.username6)[0].username6;
I want to give the "username6" variable in user. And execute
var result = categories.filter(x => x.user)[0].user;
How it possible? Please help me?
You should use the brackets notation instead of the dot notation
var user = "username6";
var result = categories.filter(x => x[user])[0][user];

Custom Number.prototype working with variable but NOT working directly with number [duplicate]

Calling member function of number literal
(3 answers)
Closed 6 years ago.
I have included custom Number.prototype in my JS as below:
Number.prototype.isBetween = function (first, last) {
return (first < last ? this >= first && this <= last : this >= last && this <= first);
This is working as expected with below code:
var a = 40;
Result :
But when i try to execute as below, it is throwing an error:
Result :
Uncaught SyntaxError: Invalid or unexpected token
How to make this(40.isBetween(10,50)) work?
You can wrap the number in parentheses to solve this.
// => true
Without the parentheses, there is ambiguity in the grammar that the language parser intentionally avoids by throwing an error.
