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:

» 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.
