View Full Version : Direct way to read value of an Array variable?

06-13-2003, 05:09 PM
I am passing values to a funtion, and it works fine as long as the variables are individually declared:

var val1="Something"
var val2="Something else"

onclick= return function([var1],[var2])

then the function:
function do_it(invar1, invar2) {
do work invar1 & invar2 }

Everything works fine BUT

I would like to use an array, especially a dense or literal array, but the variables from an array are all var[1] ,var[2], etc.

In that format, the variable values are don't seem to pass to the function with:

onclick= return function([var[1]],[var[2]])

(or 10k other versions I/ve tried. I can 'var[1]' or "var[1]" and pass them as a string, but still need to pull the value from them.

So what I am looking for is a direct conversion, that would be something like this?

var1 = value(var[1])

From what I have seen, it is hard to beleive that JS doesn't provide a direct function / rendition for this! :mad:

this does not work:
onclick= return function(var[1],var[2])

"This Does not Work:"

onclick= return function(var[1],var[2])

neither does this (attempts to use array variable name)

onclick= return function([var[1]],[var[2]])

But this does
onclick= return function([var1],[var2])

As I mentioned the problem here is that If I want to use an array instead of declaring individually, I can't transfer the data (simply).

is your array named var? change it to other name, var is a reserved keyword.

Var is just the sample name, to show placement. Thw question is on syntax for transferring var values from an array?
