    [CS4] Find biggest variable?

    How could i find the biggest variable out of lots of them
    i have a few variables and a finalvar

    name1
    name2
    name3
    name4
    finalvar

    each has a value (differs)

    what i want is to get the biggest
    EG

    name1 = 10
    name2 = 33
    name3 = 21
    name4 = 100
    finalvar = name4

    i would want name 4 (the biggest) to become the value of finalvar

    how would i do this :S
    TYVM for help

    Since I'm not trying this out in Flash, you may have to play around with the code a little bit to make sure I used the right syntax, but this should do it for you.


    ps. You can add the numbers to the array in any way you want... in fact, you could just add them WITHOUT using variables.... just .push() the number onto the array instead of storing it in a variable.
    PHP Code:
    var name1:Number 10;
    var 
    name2:Number 33;
    var 
    name3:Number 21;
    var 
    name4:Number 100;

    var 
    myArray:Array = new Array();
    myArray.push(name1);
    myArray.push(name2);
    myArray.push(name3);
    myArray.push(name4);

    myArray.sort(Array.NUMERIC); //Array.NUMERIC is important because arrays, by default, sort as if all of their values were strings.
    myArray.reverse();

    trace(myArray[0]); //output: 100; 
    Basically, you're just putting the numbers in an array and sorting them... that puts them in Ascending order, so you'd have to find the LAST number. Instead, you just reverse the array and the largest number will always be at [0].
