    resolved [RESOLVED] Delete the first character in an item in an array

    How would I go about removing only the first character of an item in an array? All my items are strings, so for example I want to turn this:

    pseudo code:

    Array["01234","01234"]

    to this:

    Array["1234","1234"]

    Or if that isn't possible, I could just turn each element into a string, modify it and re-Array it. The issue is using split(charAt(0)) isn't correct syntax. I just don't know what function to call and every search turns up only replacing specific characters, not character at a position.

    Actionscript strings are immutable, which means that they cannot be changed in place. But you can replace the String in the array.

    To get the substring of a String which is everything except the first letter, do:
    Code:
    var yString:String = myString.substring(1);
