    Query elements of an ArrayCollection dynamically?


      I'm trying to filter an ArrayCollection without having to write a bunch of filter functions. What I'd like to do is have a dynamic query (or syntax).


      Something like this:


      private var query:String = new String("name");
      private function removeDuplicates(item:Object):Boolean
           var retVal:Boolean = false;
           var tempObj:Object = {};
           if (!tempObj.hasOwnProperty(item.query)) {
                tempObj[item.query] = item;
                retVal = true;
           return retVal;


      Obviously I can't just append a string variable to an Object dot syntax. Any idea how I might go about this?
