Check if any key values are false in an object


I’m looking for a simple solution to check if any key values are false in an object.

I have an object with several unique keys, however, they only contain boolean values (true or false)

var ob = {  stack: true, 
            overflow: true, 
            website: true 

I know that I can get the number of keys in an Object, with the following line:

Object.keys(ob).length // returns 3

Is there a built in method to check if any key value is false without having to loop through each key in the object?


To check if any keys – use Array.prototype.some().

// to check any keys are false
Object.keys(ob).some(k => !ob[k]); // returns false

To check if all keys – use Array.prototype.every().

// to check if all keys are false 
Object.keys(ob).every(k => !ob[k]); // returns false 

You can use the Array.some method:

var hasFalseKeys = Object.keys(ob).some(k => !ob[k]);

Here’s how I would do that:

Object.values(ob).includes(false);      // ECMAScript 7

// OR

Object.values(ob).indexOf(false) >= 0;  // Before ECMAScript 7

You can create an arrow function isAnyKeyValueFalse, to reuse it in your application, using Object.keys() and Array.prototype.find().


const ob = {
  stack: true,
  overflow: true,
  website: true
const isAnyKeyValueFalse = o => !!Object.keys(o).find(k => !o[k]);


To check if all values are false

Object.values(ob).every(v => !v);
