Subject: RE: FLASH: array trouble
From: Ruben Mafura
Date: Wed, 20 Dec 2000 15:05:51 GMT

...the txt-file contains the following (and much more of it):

soundpress0=12034&soundpress2=13501&soundpress3=.......etc.etc(up to
soundpress899).

I just need the values of the variables, not the variablenames.

About your suggestion...
Can you give an example of "putting the strings into the array reference
them directly from the array"?

(PS 'De mensen, de oplossingen',...it's Dutch, it stand for 'The people, the
solutions'. My boss thought of that one,...next year a number of small Flash
projects will be comming this way and (curious as i am) i'm sort of peeking
into this Flash-world. Right now, composing music and graphical design is my
thing. Perhaps that Flash will join these fields of interest. The things
i've seen so fare, build in Flash look very promising.)

Not quite clear here. Yes, a loop is a good idea for putting things in
an array, and an array is a good idea if you have 900 things with
similar names! But do you want the array to contain both variable names
and strings? Can't you just put the strings into the array and
reference them from the array directly? Also, what's the content of
your text file? Hard to answer (from my point of view, anyway) without
knowing more.

(PS What's "De mensen, de oplossingen"?)

Regards,
Helen
