How to Loop through over 100 form fields using action script

blahblahdiva asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-11
I have about 100 form fields on a flash form. I want to process the information in the form fields by looping through the form fields and capturing the names and values into array. The fields were created manually and I want to process the data dynamically.

There are a mixture of text boxes, check boxes, radio buttons and combo boxes with field names that have a prefix of txt, chk, rbn and cmb respectfully. I plan on checking the first 3 characters of the field name to determine the type of field.

The Goal: No matter how many fields get added I never have to touch my code again.

How can i accomplish this?

 I am using ActionScript 2.0 Thanks
