Hi,

This error must be silly but i just can't seem to get over it for a day now.
The following code tries to fill up an image array, and then "do something" with it.
The problem is that I get an undefined error for the use of icons[i].src the next line (line 24) after a value was assigned to it.

Can anyone look and see what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks!

Change icons[i].src to this.src

Note that you are inside the function of icons[i] by icons[i].onload = function()

Here's a small example:

<html>
<head>
    <title></title>
    <script>
        var img = [];
        for (i = 0;i<3;i++){
            img[i] = new Image;
            img[i].src = "b.png"; //assuming you have a b.png img
            img[i].onload = function(){
                alert(this.src);
                //alert(img[i].src); would generate an error - function scope
            };
        }
    </script>
</head>
<body>
