Thanks kglad, but I didn't make myself clear. Having created a number of arrays with names that include an index number I want to be able to extract that index number in order to identify the array later. If this was a MovieClip I would use substr() etc with mc._name, but arrays have no _name property. I guess I can store the index in the first element but I'd prefer not to.
no, that looks pretty clearly stated. i just didn't read it.
you can assign a name property to your arrays or really just the index property because that's all you want:
Thanks. That's a good solution, and it gives me a consistent approach to use with MCs as well.
