How to convert array to object in Javascript

I have this array:

array = [ [ 'cardType', 'iDEBIT' ],
[ 'txnAmount', '17.64' ],
[ 'txnId', '20181' ],
[ 'txnType', 'Purchase' ],
[ 'txnDate', '2015/08/13 21:50:04' ],
[ 'respCode', '0' ],
[ 'isoCode', '0' ],
[ 'authCode', '' ],
[ 'acquirerInvoice', '0' ],
[ 'message', '' ],
[ 'isComplete', 'true' ],
[ 'isTimeout', 'false' ] ]


The issue with this is that I can't (or am unaware of an easy way to) access data via the array's key. So I can't run
array['txnId']
and get the value. I would like to convert it to an object, how can I do so?

mmm mmm
Answer

This will do it:

array =    [ [ 'cardType', 'iDEBIT' ],
      [ 'txnAmount', '17.64' ],
      [ 'txnId', '20181' ],
      [ 'txnType', 'Purchase' ],
      [ 'txnDate', '2015/08/13 21:50:04' ],
      [ 'respCode', '0' ],
      [ 'isoCode', '0' ],
      [ 'authCode', '' ],
      [ 'acquirerInvoice', '0' ],
      [ 'message', '' ],
      [ 'isComplete', 'true' ],
      [ 'isTimeout', 'false' ] ];
    
var obj = {};
array.forEach(function(data){
    obj[data[0]] = data[1]
});
console.log(obj);
