Probably very silly question but can get it done ...

function test() {
	$values = new ArrayData(array(
		'd1' => 'somedata',
		'd2' => 'moredata',
return $values;

function stuff() {
	$a = $this->test();
	$b = $a[d1].'added';
	return $b;

accessing data in arraydata as in regular array drops error?
thank for help ..

Well because you have a ArrayData object read the ArrayData API for what you can call on that object. getField($fieldname). Sounds like that you want to do. I think you can also use magic vars like $a->d1 to get the d1 or $a->getField('d1'); is the long option.
