    pushing arrays only once?

    shintashi Level 1

      say I've got a button I push to add a currently selected term inside a text field/input field to an array, but I don't want to accidentally add the same option twice, or see the same option over and over, what do I have to do to the array?

       

      here's the original for an array called aNameslist and a variable called namesD

       

       

      addmcD.onPress = function(){
              aNameslist.push(namesD);
                  }

       

      What's necessary to switch an output like

       

      Jane Doe, Jane Doe, Calaway Donner, John Doe, Jim Dutchy, John Doe, Jane Doe

       

      into something like

       

      Jane Doe, Calaway Donner, John Doe, Jim Dutchy
