Example text

Fla, test the movie, and change the script. The for in loop comes in particularly handy when we use the idMap array. idMap Array idMap has been introduced with Flash 8 and therefore does not exist in Flash MX2004. idMap will give an error message during compilation of AS2 classes when we use it with regular XML loading scripts. I do not know the reason. However, idMap works properly and without error messages when used in combination with the InitiateXml class. Now you have another reason it was worthwhile to develop this class.

We also use the method parseXML, which will build an XML tree and later facilitate coding. The onLoad event is similar to the onData event and is executed only when the file loading is finished. If anything went wrong and “xFile” is undefined, the script will be terminated at that point. loaded = false; } }; For the onLoad event handler we use the Delegate class to broaden the scope of the function, which is held by the variable “lFunction”. This is the function that will parse the XML data. In the 44 Flash XML Applications examples later you will see that in fact the “this” word will refer to the class in which it is used and not to the function, since we broadened the scope here using the Delegate class.

NodeName property) public nodeName : String This is a reference to the name of an XML node. nodeValue property) public nodeValue : String This is a reference to the value of an XML node. parentNode property) public parentNode : XMLNode [read-only] This is a reference to the parent node of a child node. prefix property) public prefix : String [read-only] This is a reference to the prefix of a namespace XML document. previousSibling property) public previousSibling : XMLNode [read-only] This is a reference to the previous sibling of a child node.
