Iterative Variables in Actionscript 2

471 Views
Last Modified: 2013-12-05
If I copy the currentText output from the trace below and paste it into the code and append a "._visible = false", the item is rendered invisible.

Referring directly to the currentText variable, however, doesn't work. There are no errors. It just doesn't do anything! I suspect I have set up the variable wrong even though the trace output comes out correctly.


stop();
numberOfQuestions = 10;

//safetyExpectations.safetyExpectations1.safetyExpectationsText1._visible = false;
safetyExpectations.safetyExpectations1.mc_check_1._visible = false;
safetyExpectations.safetyExpectations1.check1_btn._visible = false;

for (i = 1; i < numberOfQuestions; i++) {
currentText = ["safetyExpectations.safetyExpectations"+i+".safetyExpectationsText"+i];
trace (currentText);
currentText._visible = false;
}
