    Default Look up table for Do, Re, Mi notes?

    I have a table of music notes and values:

    {"Do":262,"Re":294,"Mi":330,"Fa":349,"Sol":392,"La ":440,"Si":494}

    Is there some way I can make that some kind of "list" or even object, where I can then use the string "Mi" to get back the number that is the frequency of that note?

    I guess I am looking for what to put in for the ???? here in this snippit (or maybe this is totally off base)

    string notename = "Mi";
    int notefreq;

    ????? tableofnotes={"Do":262,"Re":294,"Mi":330,"Fa":349, "Sol":392,"La":440,"Si":494}

    notefreq=???? (tableofnotes,notename)

    Any help appreciated!!

    One way would be to parse the Strings in that list of Strings separating the names and values and then use them with a Map<String, Integer>
    Then the value could be accessed using the get method:
    int freq = theMap.get("Mi");

    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Well, for something like this where the values wouldn't (shouldn't change) I would use an Enum. Check it out here
