Sample text

First we need to create a new instance of the XML object. Since Flash MX, objects are instantiated by the “new” word. ignoreWhite ϭ true;” that all the white space in the XML file is ignored, since white space is also regarded as node. Do not forget this line, because you may get strange results. Next we have an onLoad event. This event is executed only when the XML file is fully loaded. We create a new function, “loadXML”, to display and, if we intend, to parse the XML once the data is loaded.

OnHTTPStatus handler) onHTTPStatus = function(httpStatus:Number) {} This is invoked when Flash Player receives an HTTP status code from the server. It can be executed also within the onData event handler, but then only when there is an onLoad event. It will be undefined when the XML document is loaded from the computer hard drive. xml"); will trace httpStatus: 200 A list of numbers is shown below. onLoad handler) onLoad = function(success:Boolean) {} The onLoad event handler is invoked when an XML document is received from the server.

Xml"); Chapter 3: XML and XMLNode Classes 23 The trace would give - 6, because of a malformed node (Ͻ bathϾ). xmlDecl property) public xmlDecl : String This is a string that specifies information about an XML document. To parse an XML document in Flash a declaration is not required. 0\”? 0"? onData handler) onData = function(src:String) {} This is invoked when XML text has been completely downloaded from the server or when an error occurs in downloading XML text from a server. The difference compared to onLoad is that the XML document has not been parsed and white space, for example, has not been removed.
