Thread: using variables from other classes in arrays :/

    Default using variables from other classes in arrays :/

    So i already have this array in a TransmitterTest class:

    network = new Transmitter[networkSize] ;

    Transmitter is another class, with x y and radius variables.
    There's a few methods in it like getX, getY and getRadius that just return their values.

    The TransmitterTest class creates random values for the x and y variables, and there's a set value for radius, then they added to the network array as a Transmitter :

    network[i] = new Transmitter(x, y, radius) ;

    that all works so far.

    but i dont know how to use these values later on though in another method :/
    assumed would be something like

    network[i].Transmitter().x
    for value of x of Transmitter in i position of array, but cant get it to work.

    Any help

    Default Re: using variables from other classes in arrays :/

    Through the array, you would directly access the values of the object, in this case I suspect it would be something like:
    network[i].x

    But that's a guess without full code
