Hi there,

i want to get the position of an object in the vector
like example vector contains["test", "hi", "noway"]
i want to do something like this vector.getID("hi");
is should return me the requested id....
i know i can search for it in a for loop
but i want to avoid this for loop
I could'nt find this in the vector api
can someone explain to me how i extend the vector object
and add this functionality into a myVector object???

Robert,
How about indexOf() in the Vector class. It takes an object as an arguement and returns the index (an int) that that object is located at in the Vector.
