    Help With Code

    fsoender Level 1

      Why cant I write the code like this in FelxBuilder?



      public var ValueIn:Sring



      if(ValueIn == 1) {

      NewBatteryStatus = "Red";

      } else if(ValueIn == 2) {

      NewBatteryStatus = "Green";

          because it represents all things wrong as far as actionscript is concerned.

          1. Wrong Type (You meant "String" instead of sring),

          2, the default value for string is null(i think), you are comparing against integers

              String not sting or sring,


              you need to pick a book on actionscript. thats how you can fix it.

                As they pointed out, you probably should read up on ActionScript to figure this out, but....


                Things that are missing.

                public var ValueIn:String = "";

                Things that are wrong .

                if(ValueIn == 1) 

                However, the entire way your handing this is incorrect, because you can't treat a String as a Number to determine if the value equals something.  It looks like you are trying to pass in a numeric value to a function in or to set a global variable to a string value.  This is how I would do it.  But, you should figure out why.



                     <s:String id="NewBatteryStatus" />
                           private function batteryStatusCheck(batteryValue:int):void {
                                     case 1:
                                         NewBatteryStatus = "Red"; 
                                    case 2:
                                         NewBatteryStatus = "Green"; 
                                         NewBatteryStatus = "Black";
