View Full Version : Add for loop count to variable

10-05-2010, 06:56 PM
I want to make a for loop that takes the current loop count and adds it to a string name. So somthing like this:

for i = 1 to multiSubCount do
local theBitmap = bitmaptexture filename:"dummyPath"'"+i"'


How would I go about doing this? Basically I want the variable to equal bitmaptexture filename:

bitmaptexture filename:"dummyPath1"

bitmaptexture filename:"dummyPath2"

bitmaptexture filename:"dummyPath3"

...and so on depending on the count of the for loop.

You would need to convert the number to a string to add it to the string needed for the filename.for i = 1 to multiSubCount do
local theBitmap = bitmaptexture filename:("dummyPath"+(i as string))
