    Get value of a variable

    anjemalo Community Member

      Hello:

      In other language I can use this kind of sentences:

       

      function DoSomething (n:uint):void

      {

         

          var Myvalue:Object;

          Myvalue="image"+n+"_mc");

          Myvalue.gotoAndPlay(2);

      }

       

      How can achieve this? because the above code does not work.

      Many thanks

          You have an unmatched closing parenthesis so that will not work, but to use a String to target an object you can use the bracket notation...

           

          this["image"+n+"_mc"].gotoAndPlay(2);

           

          I show it without the variable since that is an unnecessary step, though you can use it if you prefer.
