Is this possible I need variables for the amount of weeks between startweeks and endweeks (t01, t02, t03, t04)

<cfloop index="j3" from="#startweek#" to="#endweek#" step="1">
<cfset 't'&j3 = 0>
</cfloop>

Like this :

<cfset Variables['t' & j3] = 0>

Or for form variables use :

<cfset Form['t' & j3] = 0>

Or for URL variables or session variables do similarly...

Something like this using Evaluate():


<html><body>

<!--- Create and assign --->
<cfloop index="i" from="1" to="10">
   <cfset Evaluate("t#NumberFormat(i, '00')#=i")>
</cfloop>

<!--- Test them --->
<cfoutput>t01=#t01#</cfoutput><br>
<cfoutput>t02=#t02#</cfoutput><br>
<cfoutput>t03=#t03#</cfoutput><br>
<cfoutput>t04=#t04#</cfoutput><br>
<cfoutput>t05=#t05#</cfoutput><br>
<cfoutput>t06=#t06#</cfoutput><br>
<cfoutput>t07=#t07#</cfoutput><br>
<cfoutput>t08=#t08#</cfoutput><br>
<cfoutput>t09=#t09#</cfoutput><br>
<cfoutput>t10=#t10#</cfoutput><br>

</body></html>

Hi there,

I would just do something like this:

<cfloop index="j3" from="#startweek#" to="#endweek#" step="1">
   <cfset 't#j3#' = 0>
</cfloop>

and if you want session variables:
<cfset 'session.t#j3#' = 0>

INSDivision try to avoid 'evaluate' because its slow esspecialy in loops!
You can also use cfdump to see all the variables: <cfdump var="#variables#"> or <cfdump var="#sessions#">

Mause - you are correct that evaluate is slow, but so is using # the way you showed.

Really the only efficient method is accessing it from teh scope as in my example.

mrichmon - I just run a test width your code and mine
and indeed yours is faster (in a loop of 1000) but its only 5 to 10ms :)

There is also another advantage.

The scope syntax (the method I showed) works in every situation I have come across so far.

I used to use your method or the evaluate until I found that in some complex situations it actually doesn't work and the only way to actually work is to use the scope syntax.

Yep

I wasn't criticizing your way... I used it quite a lot until I found this scope method.
