Variable Variables in Actionscript
I often make use of variable variables, because I generally use interpreted languages like PHP. Variable variables are not supported in compiled languages like C++ etc. The same applies for Actionscript. Because I make extensive use of variable variables in PHP, I had some difficulties solving specific problems in Actionscript. Fortunately I found a trick to solve my problem. But before I show you the sample script I will give a short introduction to variable variables in PHP.
Sample PHP script:
//my_var has a string value of mirza $my_var = mirza; //allocate a variable variable of the variable $my_var $$my_var = 1; //the upper line of code now has the same meaning like $mirza = 1; !!!
In words, with variable variables you can dynamicaly create variable names and give them values!!!
Now on to Actionscript...
