I am currently running a for loop to create series of layers that I place within a page component

for i in [2..0]
slide = new Layer
width: Screen.width
height: 624
image: "images/slide"+i+".png"
x: 750 * i
name: "slide" + i
parent: carousel.content

For some reason I can't seem to reference the clips ie ( slide0.onTap -> et. etc.). There a reason for why I am unable to reference the layer by the name?


Ian McClure

slide0 isn't the variable name. Name in a object is a property of the object. It's variable name is slide, which gets destroyed when the loop ends, and it has a property called name that holds a string.

You can either add them to an array and grab them from that or use carousel.content.childWithName({your layer's .name property})

Thanks for the explanation Ian.

Ian McClure

Not a problem.

I agree with Ian that an array will be your best bet. I'd also recommend using carousel.addPage() rather than setting the new page using the layer's parent property.

Thanks Steve.
