Hello

I want to create an array(Object) that holds ID and Name of an user, after that then also how to do the for each user and grab the current Name and ID in the 'for each' statement.

How can this be done, both the population of the array and also the manegement of the 'for each' statement for it.

Data sample:
Username:ID
hest:12873127389
john:71283723
Niel:2311232312

Or you can use similar to hashmap

var users:Object = new Object();
users[12873127389] = "hest";
users[71283723] = "john";
users[2311232312] = "Niel";

for (var id:String in users)
       trace( 'Username:' + users[id]+ " ID:" + id);

The advantages using HashMap you can grad user name by id

var lookupId = 2311232312;
trace( 'Username:' + users[lookupId]);
