Well I don't remember ever seeing an array tutorial so I thought I'd write one seen as people have been asking for them.
Okay first of all an array is a list of variables which are all stringed together in one array, think of it as a Grocery/Shopping List on this list there are several different items but you just use the general term Groceries to classify them. So to use this in Flash you would do this in the first frame of your movie.
groceries=["carrots","sausages","beans"] //Groceries is the arrays name, carrots beans and sausages are the items needed trace(groceries) //Writes the grocery list out on the output window
As it turns out you don't need carrots you need bacon so how would you go about changing the carrots without retyping the whole array, of course you could just change it but this way is needed sometimes, so change your code to:
groceries=["carrots","sausages","beans"] groceries="bacon" //note the first item in an array is labelled 0 not one trace(groceries)
