Dan,
I'm also using the switch with static attributes from other class without any problems. I guess you have a type error problem.
Check the trace of a strict equality test:
trace(currItem.getMediaType() === VideoVO.SWF_STATE);
If it returns true, then the switch should evaluate properly. If not, the switch will branch to the default case because the condition and the case aren't of the same type.



Dan Thomas a écrit :
I have a method that returns a number which I know to be of value 1
I have a static number variable in another class (SWF_STATE) which I
also know to be 1.
In an if() statement they evaluate to equal the same, however in the
following switch statement it will not evaluate?


trace("TYPE:"+currItem.getMediaType()+" COMPARED TO:" +
VideoVO.SWF_STATE); // this traces "TYPE:1 COMPARED TO:1"


        if(currItem.getMediaType() == VideoVO.SWF_STATE)
        {
                trace("wtf?!");//this evaluates and traces
        }
        switch(currItem.getMediaType()) // this switch always traces the
error (default branch)
        {
                case VideoVO.FLV_STATE:
                        this.currentPlayer = swfPlayer;
                        break;
                case VideoVO.SWF_STATE:
                        this.currentPlayer = swfPlayer;
                        break;
                case VideoVO.MP3_STATE:
                        this.currentPlayer = swfPlayer;
                        break;
                case sometest==VideoVO.JPG_STATE:
                        this.currentPlayer = swfPlayer;
                        break;
                default:
                        trace("ERROR: NO MEDIA TYPE!!!!!");
                }
                
        trace(sometest); // traces 1
        trace(VideoVO.SWF_STATE); // traces 1

Any help on this very much appreciated!

Dan
