    does miva 9.8 allow mvt:assign to have indexes in the name part?

    I know this is an old thread... but can we in miva 9.8 do the ability to use indexes in the name of the mvt:assign statement now?
    like so?

    <mvt:assign name="g.array[1]" value="'test'" />


    referring to the old 2015 thread

    and also here

    This covers arrays and structures:

    Your own example looks correct.

      What I really want to do is like on those topics I linked to is like this pseudo code

      g.idx = 0

      foreach item of items
      If true
      g.idx = g.idx +1
      <mvt:assign name="g.array[g.idx]:code" value="'l.somesku'" />
      <mvt:assign name="g.array[g.idx]:qty" value="l.number'" />
      /if
      /foreach

      Brennan wrote in 2015 that it was in the plans. I wonder if it made it in. Iím looking for a yes or not yet answer.

        In regular Miva Script, you can do this by putting a string expression in the NAME part, e.g.
        Code:
        <MvASSIGN NAME="{ 'g.array[' $ g.idx $ ']:code' }" VALUE="{ l.someSKU }">
        I guess the equivalent in Store Morph would be
        Code:
        <mvt:assign name="'g.array[' $ g.idx $ ']:code'" value="l.someSKU" />
        But I haven't tried it myself; I don't know if Store Morph allows expressions in the name part.

            It didn't work for me in storemorph.

            Any luck?

              Is this feature still not available?

              I'd like to make a batch report that loops through the selected orders and aggregates the individual product data across those orders. I can't think of a way to do that without building an array based on the product codes, which means I need a member element (or a hack by concatenating in a variable on the name element).

              Thanks,
              Susan

                Maybe it's me, but I don't see why this is difficult. I probably don't understand what you mean by "selected orders" and "aggregate." Why can't you just use an mvt:foreach loop? Can you give us some more details about what you're trying to accomplish?
