[D6] access an action property when the action is owned by an action manager

Hi,
With D6, when I'm using an actionmanager ? How can I update the status of my actions like I used to do in D5 ?
I mean for exemple in the OnUpdate I used to set the enable property on some of my actions...

It seems that I have to access to a specific action by using somethin like
ActionManager1.actions[1].cheked for exemple.
This is bad because the indexes may change when I add new actions... No ?
If the action is called actMyAction... Why is this not available somewhere ?
Can I access an actiopn by name with the action manager ?

Thanks for your help.

John.

Hello

   ActionManager1.Actions[1].Execute;
and
  Action2.Execute;

are the same,so u can access the action directly by it's name

hello,
I did not get a mail telling me that you commented on that...

So, for me action2 is not declared in the code if you use an actionmanager...
what do you say about that...

Hello Jeurk

  if you have only one action then the

ActionManager1.Actions[0].Execute;
and
 Action1.Execute;

are the same, cuz the actions index start from 0

I understand what you say... now look to what I say:
When you create new actions in the action manager, no local action is declared. so there is no Action1 to call...
No action1 no action2, those variables do not exists....
So I can't call them... Am I wrong ?
