Actually, I think you can use the " in" operator

something like 23 in myArray , myArray being the array name, it
will return true and the sysvar.ArrayIndex will contain the element

Look in the EGL language reference under expressions and operators

Re: [EGL-i] can an array be

Please respond to

I believe you are correct.

I believe the best way is to do a for loop and search the field you need
for the values you are looking for.

Is there a way to search an array without doing a loop.

So, if array has values 1,4,55,23,556,2,65,632,34 and I am looking for
can this be done with any type of built in function?

If not, im guessing the best way is using a for loop and do a compare.
