Accepted answer


  1. Create an object => const getData = {};
  2. Iterate => mySchedule.schedules
  3. Set id as a key and false as value => getData[] = false;
const getData = {};

mySchedule.schedules.forEach(item => {
   getData[] = false;



The above answer is correct, but let's dive deep into the problem first:

The map function returns an Array, what you want is an Object. The map function applies the callback for every element and returns a new array of elements modified by the callback function. What are you seeing is the array returned by the map function, note that 1,2,3,4is the index position of the array. Read more about the function map here

The output that you want is an object, but as we have learned before the map function always returns an array with new elements resulting from your map function callback.

If you want an object that are many ways to achieve that, you can loop through the array and add properties to the object.

If you want to understand more and dive into array methods, you can even achieve that using reduce method, therefore the first answer is simpler:

     /* Another example using reducer */
    const data = [ {10:false,20:false}];
    const reducer = (accumulator, currentValue) => currentValue[accumulator] = false;
