If I write "Button As Integer[3]" I get an error - ""Button not defined"
If I write "Dim Button[3]" it compiles fine.....

So the old school method seems to work fine but the new one doesn't. Seems so simple and it must be me....but what am I doing wrong?

It works for me, does your code contain an user type or something already called Button?

Do you use the Array in the same scope only ?
If not make it global.

Just to embellish a bit on what janbo said...

If you use the old method, your array automagically becomes a global, whereas with the new method it is treated like any other variable or datatype, and will only work within the scope it was defined or/and passed into.

So whilst this will result in an error:



The following code however will pass myArray to the function. Unlike datatypes, where you pass by referencing the name of the datatype, with arrays, you need say of what type it is (integer, string, float) followed by [] to signify it is an array when declaring it in the function-header.



You could of course also just define your array to be global like so:



But globals can be a problem in larger projects. For smaller projects, it's fine.
