... it's a property list. There's some decent reading in the help about property lists.
Yes, I did read through the help section before posting. I tried getAt and getPos and was thinking I would have to write some special code to cross-reference what I had with what I needed but thought for sure there would be a function to get that index and you have pointed that out.
Thank you again!
strangely enough, when I went back to help list category, under see also... getPropAt() is not listed. No wonder I couldn't find it. Strange...
thanks for point this out...
You misunderstood why I suggested checking out the help. My fault, but let me explain:
The options you tried were all based on a regular list and not a property list. You're using a property list and it does have it's own entry as well as it's own methods. The help is not written very well and is missing stuff, but it's at least a good resource to start reading about property lists.
You're correct. I didn't realize there were different types of lists. Thank you.
