Eval() function not working on Safari...

P: 6
I am trying to fetch a dynamic variable something like

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. eval("variable" + number) 
On IE this evaluates fine. But Safari returns null every time!

I also tried

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. window["variable" + number] 
But that does not help either...

Please help....

Can you post some more of your code, i.e. where you define this variable and where/when you're attempting to access this variable?

as far as i'm aware - eval works in all browsers - so to give a useful hint we need to see more of the code. since eval should always be avoided and is never needed in 'normal' javascripts - except when it comes to handle json-responses - that code should be replaced/improved anyway.
