Hello all, I am working on a advent calendar and I know that I have a specific number of days (Nov 26th - Dec 26th) I have a XML document that will pull data from a database and each day will fill out the contents of the XML. Anyways I have built a calendar that has all the days in it and assigned a generic instance name of ad22, ad23, ad24 etc... I did this because I can take the day in the query and just get the numeric value 22,23,24 etc.. The XML file will bring that value in a variable called listdaynum.

Then I want to ad something like:
var xday = ["add"+listdaynum];

What I want to then be able to do is this in a loop
xday.message.text  = txtmessage;

I get error's when trying this approach. Most blogs say to create an array and  but this gets more complicated. Any helpe would be greatly appreciated.

You could try something like this...
   var xday = this["add"+listdaynum];
or
   var xday = objectThatHasYourVariables["add"+listdaynum];

Sorry I have been slammed and was forced to put this project on the back burner.
