As3 :: Flash - Find Xml Node By Attribute Value?

I use this code in as3 in order to find node with specific id value but it is working for 2 depth

elementsToDraw = elementsList.*.(@id=="hello");

For example at this xml node can be found

<node id="d">
<node id="hello">


What should I write for searching in any depth element with id="hello"?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Find XML Node Which Has A Specific Attribute?
I have a series of XML nodes that are the same (except for the data of course). I want to find the node with that attribute and use that node's data. I know I can do this with a for loop and an if statement but I was hoping that there was a better way.[code]...

Xml Parsing - Find Specific XML Data By Attribute Name/value In Flash?
Given the following XML code:

<set name="thumbsBooks">
<set name="pdf">
<thumb>Data I want to access</thumb>
<thumb>Data I want to access</thumb>


I want to be able to get the data contained in the "thumb" tags using the "name" attribute value of the parent tag as a selector, something like you would do in jQuery: $('set[name="pdf"]').find('thumb');Is there a method like this in Action Script 2 (can't use AS3)?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Target Attribute Of Xml Node?
I've used a lot of XML in Flash, but this one really bugs me and I can't find how to make it work!

I have a simple XML like this one:

I can target the items (there are more in my complete xml) with: project.items.children( )But I can't seem to get to the attributes

Actionscript 3 :: Test If An Attribute Has Been Set In A XML Node?
I am reading in an XML file in AS3. I need to find out if an attribute exists on a node. I want to do something like:

foo(xmlIn.attribute("id"); // xmlIn is of type XML

This doesn't work however. The above if statement is always true, even if the attribute id isn't on the node.

AS3 :: Professional - XML - Replace An Attribute Or An Entire Node
I know I can use the XMLdocument class and go back tothe old way of doing thinsg. So I have an AS3 Air app which is successfully reading and writing to an XML file. Now I want to replace an attribute or an entire node if that's easier but I can't figure out how to target it. So the XML starts with an empty node:


What I want to know is how to target the status node (or any other node for that matter) so that I can replace it or it's attribute. So, let's say I have a bunch of these guest nodes and I want to change the status for the first one, how do I do that using the new syntax.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Any Way To Sort XML In Order By Attribute / Node?

Actionscript 3 :: The Continuing Saga Of "XML - Targeting Node Attribute, Push Into A Flash Array"?
Here is an excerpt of my XML file. (It is properly formatted, and has a root node, etc., but is too long to post the entire thing. Below is just the part I am concerned with.

<question id='Q1' uId='99036' no_ans='2' txt='In a flat structure employees are not expected to provide their bosses with their opinions.' feedback='' type='MC' passingWeight='1' url='media/'>
<answer id='Q1A1' uId='311288' txt='True' weight='0'/>[code]...

What I now need is a way to grab the txt attribute value from the answer tags and be able to access them from anywhere in the fla. Keep in mind that there are two answers for every question. ie:

< answer id='Q1A1' uId='311288' txt='True' weight='0'/ >
< answer id='Q1A2' uId='311289' txt='False' weight='1'/ >

Actionscript 3 :: Display XML Descendants Of A Node With A Specific Attribute?
I've been trying to figure out how to display the descendants (in this case exchangeRate and PlacesOfInterest) of a parent node with a specific attribute.To set the scene - the user clicks on a button which sets a string variable to a destination eg. japan or australia.The code then runs through a set of nodes in the XML and any that have a matching attribute is traced - simple enoughWhat I can't figure out is how to then display only the child nodes of the node with that attribute.I'm sure there has to be a way of doing it and I'll probably be banging my head against the desk when I find it

public function ParseDestinations(destinationInput:XML):void
var destAttributes:XMLList = destinationInput.adventure.destination.attributes();

Search Flex XML Object To Find Attribute When Given Element Name?
I have a Flex XML object as follows:

private var _xmlCountries:XML =
<option value="AF">Afghanistan</option>
<option value="AL">Albania</option>
<option value="DZ">Algeria</option>
<option value="AO">Angola</option>


This object is ok, and shows up correctly in debug mode. The problem is I have a country name i.e. private var _country:String = "Angola";, and I want to get the corresponding value 'AO' from the XML object. Do you know how to do this?

I have tried loads of Livedocs examples, but cant get it to work. P.S. I am working on a HtpService & WebService driven app to display global weather conditions overlayed on a Google Maps interface. Going to make it available to the Flex community when finished.

Xml :: Find Out If XMLList Contains String As Node Value?
Is there an XMLList equivalent to Array.indexOf?

For example -
var array:Array = ['one','two'];
trace(array.indexOf('two')); // returns 1, since it's at the second position
trace(array.indexOf('three')); // returns -1, since it isn't found


there's got to be an easier way to check to see if one of the nodes in the XMLList has a particular value than looping through all of them, right? something akin to -

xmlList.indexOfChildByNodeValue('two'); // returns 1, because it's the second child
xmlList.indexOfChildByNodeValue('three'); // returns -1, because it doesn't match any children

ActionScript 2.0 :: Flash Attribute Tags - Add In Custom Attribute Tags That Flash Can Recover?
I have been trying to figure out how you could add in custom attribute tags that flash can recover.

<param name = "movie" value = "somefile.swf">
<embed src = "somefile.swf" width = "550" height = "400">

Except, that I would like to add a Custom tag, like "randNum" so that the tag user could input some number, or rather, a flash movie could generate a tag with a number already put in...Basically, heres a really basic version of the idea.There is a Flash Movie.In the movie, you can input text into a textfield.Upon finishing your message, you click a button "save".

The flash movie then:

1. Comes up with a random number unique to the message.

2. Assigns that number to a variable... "randNum".

3. Saves message as a xml file to the server as "filename" + randNum.

4. Outputs into a textfield a generated HTML tag that a user can post on myspace and such so that it will load in the flash movie.

Except... in the tag, there will be a custom attribute. If the random number variable "randNum" was 00112233, the custom attribute will be 00112233.

<embed src = "somefile.swf" width = "550" height = "400" randNum = "00112233">

So when the movie opens, it retrieves that randNum from the tag and can use it inside flash. How can this be done? Sorry this post was so long, but I wanted everyone to understand the concept.

ActionScript 3.0 :: XML Parsing Not Working When Attribute Has A : In The Attribute Name?
I am having trouble parsing some xml that has a few attribute names with : characters in them. The compiler is not throwing any errors and when I trace my complete xml object out it is all there, however when I try to trace out any element or node it keeps comming up undefined. I removed the attribute names with : characters in them and everything works fine. I cant seem to target the attributes either to delete them.

Flex :: Events - AdvancedDataGrid Tree DropParent - Drag A Leaf From One Node To Another Node
I have an AdvancedDataGrid tree with a ArrayCollection as its dataprovider. Now, for instance, i drag a leaf from one node to another node. To catch the event I'm adding a Listener to dragComplete.


My Problem: I want to know the new node where the leaf was dropped. Actually i would have expected that in the event there is a property like dropParent. This is not the case.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Finding A Node In XML File Via Node Attrib?
I thought this was going to be easy! I would like to search an XML file for a particular data set i.e. set of nodes depending on a passed variable. However, storing a subset of my XML file via Code:var gallery = this.firstChild; and then searching 'gallery' as you would an array-using a for()-doesn't work since this.firstChild isn't returning an array
