Can't seem to find answer to this:

I got a table wich looks like this


I wanna print all mobnames but something like:

  mobnumber = table.maxn (Mobs)
  for v = 0, mobnumber, 1 do
  Note (Mobs[v].name)

It wont replace the v value for the number.
What would be a correct way to do this?
Thanks for any help.


edit: hehe as I post here I found the solution.

Problem was the table start from 1 not from zero, so should be

for v = 1, mobnumber, 1 do

for i,name in ipairs(Mobs) do

Note that Lua arrays start from 1, not 0, so your for loop would also need to start from 1.

Also, it would be helpful to show the error message or bad behavior you're seeing, so that we can confirm what your problem is (I suspect it's the off-by-one indexing but am not sure).
