Now I have lots of images I want to get their state

so I did
var cardState:array;  ttstr:String;

for (var i:int = 10; i < 79; i++) {  // Loop all cards  
ttstr = "Ca" +  i.toString();   // the ID's of the cards

Now I want to put the state back
This is my Guess, but I want to get the name of the element
for (var y:int = 10; i < cardState.length; i++) {  // player  
     this[cardState[y]name ]["visible"] =   cardState[y];  }

That seems to be a difficult call.
You may use Dictionary Class for something like this:
cardstate['card1'] = true;

But then by doing cardstate[0] you will not get the value as "card1".

Can you please explain me the scenario why you are looking for such a solution. May be I can help you to think in another way as this might not be possible.
