Hi,

why won't the below code work?

I keep getting this error:
syntax error: expecting semicolon before leftbracket.


Thanks.
for(var i:int=0; i < e.length; i++)
	{
		//trace(e[i].channel);
		var test[i]:TextField = new TextField();
		test[i].text = e[i].channel;
		addChild(test[i]);
		
	}

Either you do this:
for(var i:int=0; i < e.length; i++)
        {
                var test:TextField = new TextField();
                test.text = e[i].channel;
                addChild(test);
        }

Open in new window

or this:
var test:Array = new Array();
for(var i:int=0; i < e.length; i++)
        {
                test[i] = new TextField();
                test[i].text = e[i].channel;
                addChild(test[i]);
        }
