Dynamic assignment from array

Posted on 2004-09-21
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I have a form with text fields: note0, note1, note2, etc.  The number of these items will vary (i.e. sometimes just note0 and sometimes note0 to note100)

I have an array dataArray with the same number of items as the number of notes.

I would like to create a loop like this:

for(i=0; i < dataArray.length; i++){
    note + i.value = dataArray[i];

but of course there is a problem with "note + i.value".  Can anyone suggest how I can dynamically assign to a variable like this?
