[SOLVED]Index of Variable Name?

It seems like there is no way to get the index of the name of a number variable?
I only can get the index of the value of a variable.
A workaround not working for me is to store the Names in a separate Array List.

Hey, I’m not sure I understood what you’re asking. Can you show an example of what you want exactly?

I have an array Variable and I want to get the index of a specific array/structure Name. Right now I only can get the index of the Array Value.

Index is the number of the position of a child in an array (0,1,2,3…). Only an array is indexed. Structures contain named children. So I still don’t understand what you mean exactly!

Please share an example or a screenshot of your array/structure so I can understand your question and answer you correctly.

Hi, yes I meant structure

As insein mentioned, structures don’t have an index, therefore isn’t any index value to obtain.

Why are you trying to get an index in the first place?

Structures are used when you want to obtain a value using a string. Arrays are when you want to get a value by index. If you want to do both, you would have to make an array of the structure strings.

Ok so these are just called names since it’s a structure. If it’s an array you’d call them index. That’s why your question wasn’t clear.

If I understand correctly, let’s say you have this structure:

And you want to get the name of the child that has the string “b” (which should result in “name2”). You’d use this event:

Does this answer your question?
