Lodash _.findKey() Method

  • Last Updated : 10 Sep, 2020

Lodash is a JavaScript library that works on the top of underscore.js. Lodash helps in working with arrays, collection, strings, lang, function, objects, numbers etc.

The _.findKey() method is similar to _.find() method except that it returns the key of the first element, predicate returns true for instead of the element itself.

Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof. But before you tackle the big projects, we suggest you start by learning the basics. Kickstart your web development journey by learning JS concepts with our JavaScript Course. Now at it's lowest price ever!

Syntax:

_.findKey(object, predicate)

Parameters: This method accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:



  • object: It holds the object to inspect every element.
  • predicate: It holds the function that the method invoked per iteration.

Return Value: This method returns the key of the matched element else undefined.

Example 1: Here, const _ = require(‘lodash’) is used to import the lodash library in the file.




// Requiring the lodash library 
const _ = require("lodash"); 
       
// Original array 
var users = {
  'meetu':  { 'salary': 36000, 'active': true },
  'teetu':  { 'salary': 40000, 'active': false },
  'seetu':  { 'salary': 10000,  'active': true }
};
  
// Using the _.findKey() method
let found_elem = _.findKey(users, function(o) { return 
  
o.salary < 40000; });
  
// Printing the output 
console.log(found_elem);

Output:

meetu

Example 2:




// Requiring the lodash library 
const _ = require("lodash"); 
       
// Original array 
var users = {
  'meetu':  { 'salary': 36000, 'active': true },
  'teetu':  { 'salary': 40000, 'active': false },
  'seetu':  { 'salary': 10000,  'active': true }
};
  
// Using the _.findKey() method
// The `_.matches` iteratee shorthand
let found_elem = _.findKey(users, { 'salary': 10000, 
  
'active': true });
  
// Printing the output 
console.log(found_elem);

Output:

seetu

Example 3:




// Requiring the lodash library 
const _ = require("lodash"); 
       
// Original array 
var users = {
  'meetu':  { 'salary': 36000, 'active': true },
  'teetu':  { 'salary': 40000, 'active': false },
  'seetu':  { 'salary': 10000,  'active': true }
};
  
// Using the _.findKey() method
// The `_.matchesProperty` iteratee shorthand
let found_elem = _.findKey(users, ['active', false]);
  
// Printing the output 
console.log(found_elem);

Output:

teetu

Example 4:




// Requiring the lodash library 
const _ = require("lodash"); 
       
// Original array 
var users = {
  'meetu':  { 'salary': 36000, 'active': true },
  'teetu':  { 'salary': 40000, 'active': false },
  'seetu':  { 'salary': 10000,  'active': true }
};
  
// Using the _.findKey() method
// The `_.property` iteratee shorthand
let found_elem = _.findKey(users, 'active');
  
// Printing the output 
console.log(found_elem);

Output:

meetu

Note: This code will not work in normal JavaScript because it requires the library lodash to be installed.
