Change to Array not preserved.

Jan 3, 2011 9:57 AM



I'm working on a fairly complex program in which I am manipulating arrays in several ways including, changing the position of elements in the array, adding items to the array and deleteing items from the array.


I am tracing the array after each manipulation to see if the correct values are reported and noticed a weird problem.


When adding to the array (which is triggered by a drag and drop) I get the correct initial value and the correct value after the value is added, in other words I see the new value in the array in the correct position.  For example "C042.jpg" is the value added and that is what is traced.


after rebuild and showArray = C001.jpg,C042.jpg,C002.jpg, . . .


However, when I trace the array from another function, the added element no longer appears.  So for example if I check the array prior to deleting, I get the following:


prior to delete and show array = C001.jpg,C002.jpg,C003.jpg, . . .


The array has reverted to it's initial state.


I'd appreciate any Ideas you may have.


Best regards,




Chris McLaughlin

    If you can show a complete coded example that demos your problem it will be easier to help.
