Hi, I am using Flash MX 2004 pro and I have the following code below that:

1.  Generates several ComboBoxes dynamically in a For Loop which works fine.
2.  Generates the Ids for these ComboBoxes dynamically using Arrays, then use these Ids to do 'addItem' to the ComboBoxes.

Step 2 above is not working. Looking at my code below is there an alternative solution to this?

thanks in advance

-------------------------------------------------------------------
import mx.controls.ComboBox;
var YPOS:Number;
YPOS = 10;

var MyComboBox_Array:Array;
MyComboBox_Array = new Array();

for(i=0; i < 3; i++)
{
  MyComboBox_Array[i] = "ComboBox_" + i;
  createClassObject(ComboBox, MyComboBox_Array[i], this.getNextHighestDepth(), {_x:10, _y:YPOS});
  MyComboBox_Array[i].addItem({label:"option1", data:0});
  MyComboBox_Array[i].addItem({label:"option2", data:1});
  MyComboBox_Array[i].addItem({label:"option3", data:2});

  YPOS = YPOS + 100;
}

You are just referencing the combobox by name, you need to reference it as an object:

import mx.controls.ComboBox;
var YPOS:Number;
YPOS = 10;

var MyComboBox_Array:Array;
MyComboBox_Array = new Array();

for(i=0; i < 3; i++)
{
  MyComboBox_Array[i] = "ComboBox_" + i;
  createClassObject(ComboBox, MyComboBox_Array[i], this.getNextHighestDepth(), {_x:10, _y:YPOS});
  _root[MyComboBox_Array[i]].addItem({label:"option1", data:0});
  _root[MyComboBox_Array[i]].addItem({label:"option2", data:1});
  _root[MyComboBox_Array[i]].addItem({label:"option3", data:2});

  YPOS = YPOS + 100;
}
