Array.push(). Doesn't work.

Browswer: IE 4.0.

I'm trying to use the push() method of object Array. But it doesn't seem to be working in my browser.

I get this error:
 Object doesn't support this property or method.
I went to the debugger and this is the code it was at:
 myFish = ["angel", "clown"];
 document.writeln("myFish before: " + myFish);
 pushed = myFish.push("drum", "lion"); // This line caused the error.
 document.writeln("myFish after: " + myFish);
 document.writeln("pushed this element last: " + pushed);

It should work. Why? Because I got it directly off Netscape's JavaScript Reference page. Is this method supported in my browser? Is there a reason this isn't working?

IE dosn't support the Nestcape 'push' on to an array.
An easy workaround is for both browsers is;

 theArray[theArray.length] = varToBePushed

From your code it would be something like;

 myFish[myFish.length] = "drum"
 myFish[myFish.length] = "lion"

Hope this helps

I think that will work.

What I wanted was a way to add members to an array without using arbitrary index numbers such as:
array[0] = "value";
array[1] = "value";

Looks like your way is just what I needed. Thanks a lot!
