This seems to be my week for questions. First, a little background on this project:

I am working on an app that works with NFL stats. I have a list of 32 records (1 record for each team in the league). Each record has 70 key/value pairs.

I have a window that is displayed as a sheet (thanks to help from Shane’s book). This window contains 2 matrices, each with 18 checkboxes of the stats I may wish to have displayed beneath each team. The first matrix will control what is displayed in the first text field for each team and the second matrix controls what is displayed in the second text field for each team.

In an earlier post http://macscripter.net/viewtopic.php?id=37604 I had help disabling cells in one matrix that have been selected in the other (thanks Ric).

Now I need to store the states and enabled status of the cells of each matrix to user defaults. Below is code I have written in a test app. This app contains 2 matrices, each with 2 rows and 3 columns. My question: is this the most efficient way to get the state and enabled status of each cell in the matrices? If so, cool! I’m on the right track. If not, what is a better approach?

```
property mat1 : missing value -- IBOutlet for the first matrix
property mat2 : missing value -- IBOutlet for the second matrix
on changeState_(sender) -- IBAction connected to both matrixes
-- this if/then/else code sets the enabled of a cell in 1 matrix
-- based on the state of the corresponding cell in the other matrix
if sender is mat1 then
mat2's cellAtRow_column_(sender's selectedRow(), sender's selectedColumn())'s setEnabled_(1 - (sender's selectedCell()'s |state|()))
else
mat1's cellAtRow_column_(sender's selectedRow(), sender's selectedColumn())'s setEnabled_(1 - (sender's selectedCell()'s |state|()))
end if
-- This code cycles through all of the cells in both matrices and gets their state and enabled status
-- and logs it to the console. The code will be modified to write a list of lists to user defaults
repeat with x from 0 to 1
repeat with y from 0 to 2
set c1State to mat1's cellAtRow_column_(x, y)'s |state|()
set c2State to mat2's cellAtRow_column_(x, y)'s |state|()
set c1Enabled to mat1's cellAtRow_column_(x, y)'s isEnabled()
set c2Enabled to mat2's cellAtRow_column_(x, y)'s isEnabled()
log {"mat1: ", c1State, c1Enabled} as text
log {"mat2: ", c2State, c2Enabled} as text
end repeat
end repeat
log return -- used to separate output in the console
end changeState_
```

Thanks in advance,
