Problem with for each loop and Url Loaders

Hello all :slight_smile:

I have a problem with loading profiles (users) into my stage. I want to first compare the profile I want to load in to the users allready on the stage, and if the user I want to load in have 2 or more interests in commen with the other, I want to load the profile in at the coordinats of the other and “paint” it the same color. The problem is that the first time I load a user in (when there are others loaded in) the variables lignendebruger and sammeinteresser is not set before the profilebox is loaded in to the stage. But when I remove and load the same user in again it works… Have tried to solve this problem for a very long time :slight_smile: and any help at all would be much apreciated. Hope you can get some kind of meaning out of the code, even though I have not uploaded all of it.
