    Looping problem

      Any ideas why this code wouldn't be working? Thanks!

          Can you describe what the following two lines are trying to accomplish:

          ["_root.thumbnails_mc.thumbClick"+k+"."]onRelease = function() {

          If I had to guess what the first should be I'd say...

          _root.thumbnails_mc["thumbClick"+k].onRelease = function() {

          but that's just guessing. The second line leaves me fairly clueless

            Just like Ned said it would be nice to know more about what are you trying to accomplish and where/how are you using this code.

            This would be my guess:

            for(k=0; k<imageArray.length-1; k++) {
            this.thumbnails_mc["thumbClick"+k].onRelease = function() {
            slideCount += k;

              Thanks for the tips. I'm getting closer now. Here's a little elaboration about what I'm wanting this code to do. I want the loop to replace this code (see code sample 1).

              ... and so on up to 20 images (it's a photo gallery)

              Ideas? The loop is now referencing the right movie clip on the root timeline, but I think there's something going wrong with the slideCount variable. I now have the loop looking like this (see code sample 2).

                  Unless my brain is playing a trick on me at the moment...
