Click on the first frame and then open the action Panel. Then, type the following code.

import mx.services.*;
/* import all of the webservices class packages. Otherwise, every time you call a new web service you will need to type
new mx.services.WebService(the address of the web service ) */
// set it up so that the service is called when the button is pressed.
    result_btn.onPress = function() {
    // Create a new instance of web service called - usWeatherService.
    var usWeatherService = new  mx.services.WebService("http://www.webservicex.net/usweather.asmx?WSDL");

    // Call the getWeatherReport method and assign it to the pending call object to handle results.
    weatherResultObj = usWeatherService.getWeatherReport("90815");
    usWeatherService.onLoad = trace("loading");
    // the onResult function is called if the service is successful
    weatherResultObj.onResult = function(result) {

        trace("The weather is : "+ result );

    weatherResultObj.onFault = function(fault) {
        // If there is any error such as the service not working, the onFault handler will be invoked.
          trace(fault.faultCode + "," + fault.faultstring);

Congrats, you are done with your first Web Service application, just test your movie and check out the result. You will get the weather of the area of California State University Long Beach ( 90815 ), you can change the zip code in the following line:

weatherResultObj = usWeatherService.getWeatherReport("90815");

Nice work.

» 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.
