    Multiple movie clips in variable

    MatAut Level 1

      Is it possible to have multiple movie clips inside one variable? I want to be able to just use var._totalframes instead of mc1._totalframes, mc2._totalframes, etc... Or is there another way I can avoid copying and pasting dozens of movie clips over and over? Thanks.

          You can use the bracket notation in a loop to process multiple similarly named objects such as you described...

           

          for(i=1; i<someNum; i++){

               something += this["mc"+ i]._totalframes // not clear on your intent

          }

           

          I can't be sure I am answerng your question when you mention copying and pasting movieclips.
