View Full Version : For Loop Never Executing

03-27-2008, 11:15 AM
Here is the precondition: sect1.days = "MW"

My for loop starts out like this: for (var dA:String in sect1.days)

Why wouldn't this loop execute? -- because it isnt.

what is the value of dA? It needs to be "M" or "W". Anything else, including "m" and "w" wont work.

Hey Stooshie (http://www.codingforums.com/member.php?u=60017) Howz things up there in Dundee! Its a nice part of Scotland, but of a treck though from Glasgow :)

Well, dA takes on those values, right? I don't need to explicitly assign a value to it because that's what the for .. in does, right?

My bad. you are right.

But shouldn't days be an array, or are you asking it to loop throught twice (M then W)?

Can you give me a little more info in what you are trying to do?

Hi nikos101. Always nice to see another programmer from Scotland.

days is a String, which I always thought of as an array of characters, thus it is iterable. This is a concept from Java, maybe it doesn't carry over into ActionScript?

I don't think it is the same. However here is a link to functions for that purpose:


Hope it helps.

Nothing doing at the moment nikos101, as far as I can tell. Although I've been busy recently and not really been looking much.
