While a single variable holds a single value, Array can hold a list of values. This Flash ActionScript tutorial show show how to create a new Array with ActionScript..

Flash ActionScript Codes:

//Create an empty Array with the name trayArray
//The size of this Array is 5
//Actually you may imagine an Array like a DIY ice cube tray
//The number of cavity (elements) decide the size of the ice cube tray
//Each cavity of the ice cube tray can contain or hold a thing (value)
var trayArray:Array = new Array(5);


//Although the Array was created, we did not assign values to any
//elements up to now.


//Check the size of testArray
//AS use length to define the size of an array
//The size of this Array is trayArray.length
//For easier memory, you can also imagine:
//If the length is longer, there are more cavities (elements)
//If the length is shorter, there are less cavities (elements)
output_txt.text = "The number of elements of trayArray are: " + trayArray.length;
