Associated Arrays?

Recommended Posts


I don't know if this is the proper term for this, but what I am looking for is best practice for Creating an array that shows in a dropdown list as one thing, but has a completely different value for processing? Does that make sense?

; Here is the array
Global $rArray[5]=["A", "B", "C", "D", "E"] ; Drop down items.
Global $vArray[5]=["1", "2", "3", "4", "5"] ; Values

For $i = 0 To UBound($rArray) - 1
   $drop &= "|" & $rArray[$i] ; What is displayed in dropdown.
   $rate &= "|" & $vArray[$i] ; What you get when you select an item.

Is this the best way to deal with this? Or should i use a 2d array?
