Step 2 - Preparing the XML file for use by Flah

Unfortunately, flash does not accept Carriage Return/LFs in an XML file, so we need to collapse3 the file. The result will look like this:

<xml><tabledef tablename="table"><columndef><id>DOL</id><title>Date of listing</title>
<width>25</width><wrap>No</wrap></columndef><columndef><id>Source</id><title>Listing Source</title>
<width>30</width><wrap>No</wrap></columndef><columndef><id>City</id><title>Listing City</title><width>15
</width><wrap>No</wrap></columndef><columndef><id>Status</id><title>Activity Status</title><width>8
<wrap>No</wrap></columndef><columndef><id>Link</id><title>Web Link</title><width>12</width><wrap>No

Of course, you will have a single-line file, with no carriage returns. They were placed here just for clarity. Save this file as XMLcondensed.htm. This file will be used by our flash SWF to dynamically generate the table.

Here's how the flash file generates the table: Each column has a heading and a left-side line, as follows:

The right most column in the table has the right side line as follows:

So a 5 column table would look this this:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
