ReferenceError: Error #1037: Cannot assign to a method every on Array.

Apr 6, 2012 3:16 PM

This code causes a runtime Error#1037 when publishing in AS3, but not in AS2.


var myArray:Array=[];



I'm guessing that is because every is an already defined method in the Array class.


Should I be using the dictionary class instead? Any good tips on that? Anything I should really know?

    i'm not sure what you're trying to do but the Array class is used for ordered lists.  You should NOT be using a string for a key.


    if you want to create an unordered list = hash=map in flash (and use strings for keys), use an object:


    var obj:Object={}

    obj["every"]=[];  // if you want the value to be an array or


    obj["ever"]={};  // if you want the value to be another object/has/map


    use a dictionary if you want to use objects for keys.
