Start Scripting

This text box will display the xml content as links for us. I gave it a big name, "content_feed_display". Why? I like big names. Sue me.

Once you've built the text box, that's pretty much it for the actual required objects. The rest is all in the scripting.

Right click on the first and only frame of the movie. Select 'Actions'. We'll start by setting up the XML object

//create a new xml object
urlXML = new XML();
//when the xml data has loaded, we want the XML Object to run the convertXML function
urlXML.onLoad = convertXML;

//Write to your text area that the data is loading.
content_feed_display = "Loading data...";

//now load up the url.

The next step is what to do with the xml once it's loaded up. For this, we need to define the convertXML function to rifle through the XML and get the data we want.

Before we do this, we might want to take a look at the XML in question. This will make the function seem a lot more clear.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
