Subject: FLASH: F5 better actionscripting - looping question
From: jmerrill
Date: Fri, 22 Dec 2000 18:47:02 GMT


I have an "improvement" question. The following F5 actionscript works OK
for me:

var1 = otherVar1+name1+otherVar2+newline
var2 = otherVar1+name2+otherVar2+newline
var3 = otherVar1+name3+otherVar2+newline
var4 = otherVar1+name4+otherVar2+newline
var5 = otherVar1+name5+otherVar2+newline
var6 = otherVar1+name6+otherVar2+newline
var7 = otherVar1+name7+otherVar2+newline
var8 = otherVar1+name8+otherVar2+newline
var9 = otherVar1+name9+otherVar2+newline
combinedVars = var1+var2+var3+var4+var5+var6+var7+var8+var9;

However, I know this is not the most efficient way of doing this, and
comming from Authorware, I know this can be done with a repeat loop. I
just don't know how to say it in actionscript. Would it be something like,

n=1;
while (n<10) {
var(n) = otherVar1+name(n)+otherVar2+newline;
n++;
}

? I know this isn't quite right, can someone see what I'm trying to do,
and point me in the right direction?

Thanks
