The XML tree

An XML file has the structure of a tree as shown in the figure below.

the xml tree

In order to get access to individual parts of the tree using actionscript we have to start at the root of the tree, which in this case is the root node . Actionscript is based on microsoft´s Document Object Model (DOM). Check other tutorials in the Web for that. The principal to get access to the XML tree is basically very similar to the way to get access to the inside of a movieclip. There is a root or parent and there are children. But now let´s focus on the actual flash file. We will mainly focus on the functions related to the XML files. There is also a preloader for pics, which however will not be discussed further in detail here.

» 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.
