Experts - I am looping through an array of movie clip names in actionscript 2.0 and need to figure out a way to pass a var to the onPress function. I'm dealing with a scope issue, but am not sure how to fix it.

I have the following code on the first frame of my timeline. The issue is, when the onPress event is fired, counties[i] is undefined. Is there a way I can pass the array variable into the onPress event function without loosing scope?

Thank you for your help!

~ C
counties = testVar1.split(',');
 

for (var i = 0; i < counties.length; i++)

{

	var o = eval(counties[i]);

	o.stop();

	o._alpha = 70;

	

	o.onPress = function()

	{

		getURL("#" + counties[i]);

	}

}

I was able to fix this myself with relative ease. Just declare a var before the function and then call it in the function.
counties = testVar1.split(',');

 

for (var i = 0; i < counties.length; i++)

{

        var o = eval(counties[i]);

        o.stop();

        o._alpha = 70;

        o.varToCallInsideFunction = counties[i];

        o.onPress = function()

        {

                getURL("#" + this.varToCallInsideFunction);

        }

}
