5003 error message in JavaScript

1 New Member
Hi. whenever I try to run this, I get the message,"Cannot asign to a function result." Can anybody help? By the way, it's supposed to ask for a number 10 times, and then add them upp and show the sum on the page. Thanks.

  1. <html>

  4. <script type="text/javascript">
  6. var num = new Array(10);
  7. var total;
  9. for (ctr = 1; ctr <= 10; ctr++){
  10. num(ctr) = prompt("Please type in a number:", " ");
  11. total = + num(ctr);
  12. }
  13. document.write(total);
  15. </script>

Heya, jarjarboy. Welcome to TSDN!

This doesn't directly solve your problem (see Logician's post for that), but it will fix the next one:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. total = + num(ctr);
This s/b:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. total += num[ctr];
