    tracing the next variable?

    krustafarian
      subMenuItem._visible = 0;
      function theMenu(n) {
      var newY = 0;
      var newX = 0;
      for (var i = 0; i<n; i++) {
      duplicateMovieClip("subMenuItem", "selectc"+i, i);
      this["selectc"+i]._x = newX;
      this["selectc"+i].selectcText = _parent.subMenu ;
      this["selectc"+i].ivar = i;
      myMenuList.push(String("_level0.menu01.selectc"));
      newX = newX+17;
      }
      }


      this is a script i'm using to duplicate a button for each item in a menu, each button is allocated a 'selectcText' variable (which is taken from an external txt file).
      on each frame of my _root. timeline i need to trace the next selectcText,
      i.e. on frame 9, i need to trace the selectcText allocated to button selectc1
      on frame 10, i need to trace the selectcText allocated to button selectc2
      on frame 11, i need to trace the selectcText allocated to button selectc3
      etc...

      hope that makes sense. can anyone figure out how i would perform the trace?
