The Fla file: Actionscript for buttons, accessing the XML file

We now have to get access to the XML file. We do that by creating a function containing a loop. In this function we search for the root node "models".

	//function to get to the root node and the childnodes

	function newModel() {

		//loop going through the xml file whereby childNodes.length is the number of child nodes

		for (var count01=0; count01<=models.childNodes.length; count01++) {

   //the root node name "models"

			if (this.childNodes[count01].nodeName.toLowerCase() == "models") {

				//this var holds the complete xml file

				modelsDescryption = this.childNodes[count01];



		//function to get access to individual childnodes

  //modelsDescryption will carry over the extracted contents from the previous 

  //function to the next function

» 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.
