[Flashcoders] array.indexOf problem

2009-06-16 Thread Isaac Alves
Hi fellows,
Cannot solve this problem:

function buttonClicked(e:Event):void {
 trace (buttonsArray.indexOf(e.target.name));

It always  traces -1. This code should trace the index of the Array
element right? for ex: 0, 1, 2 or 3.

If i do this, it will trace the correct name of the element.

function buttonClicked(e:Event):void {
 trace (e.target.name);

If I do this, it will trace the name of the second element:

function buttonClicked(e:Event):void {
 trace (buttonsArray[1].name);

Why indexOf doesn´t work properly?

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

Perhaps you're storing a reference to the button in buttonsArray?

In that case, you should do:

buttonsArray.indexOf(e.target);

trace (buttonsArray.indexOf(e.target.name));


Looking at the aboveyour buttonsArray  is  an  Array containing 
Objects.

And you are using the indexOf method looking for a String.

Take off the .name property and you should see a difference.

Your sample doesn't show how you build the Array.

So the answer to your incomplete question is nothing different than  
what Flash is telling you.


The reason it returns -1 is because indexOf couldn't find a STRICT  
EQUALITY match for e.target.name in your array.


If you posted how you built buttonsArray, you'd probably solve your  
own problem by looking at the code you wrote more closely.

It sounds like your array is full of button objects, but you're
searching for a string (the button name), and an object and a string
don't match.

Remove the .name from the key you're searching for, and I believe it
should work.
