Generic List - Class Add Dynamically


I’m trying to make a List of my own Class. I don’t know how to populate it though, I keep running into Errors. So below is fine, this all displays well in my Inspector, and I can add Elements and it shows fine.


	var question : String;
	var answers : List.<String>;
	var cindex : int;

var questions : List.<QUIZ_SUB_QUESTION>;

Now, I want to Add to the List dynamically:

var qList : List.<QUIZ_SUB_QUESTION> = new List.<QUIZ_SUB_QUESTION>();
qList..question = question;
qList.answers = null;
qList.cindex = cindex;

But I get the errors:

  • ‘question’ is not a member of 'System.Collections.Generic.List.
  • ‘answers’ is not a member of 'System.Collections.Generic.List.
  • ‘cindex’ is not a member of 'System.Collections.Generic.List.

When they clearly are … what am I doing wrong here? Thanks.

The way you have now done it is that both qList and questions are of type List<QUIZ_SUB_QUESTION> so you are trying to make a list of lists.

You should be doing something like

question.question = "How old are you?";
question.answers = null;


‘question’ is not a member of 'System.Collections.Generic.List.

The compiler is confused because you are trying to set the .question variable of the list. A list doesn’t have such a variable , but each QUIZ_SUB_QUESTION in the list does because you declared it in your class.
