Given the following XML code:

<set name="thumbsBooks">

AS3 :: Professional - XML - Replace An Attribute Or An Entire Node

Oct 6, 2010

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 3 :: Display XML Descendants Of A Node With A Specific Attribute?

Feb 22, 2011

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?

Oct 13, 2010

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?

Jul 26, 2010

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?

Dec 15, 2006

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.

I removed the attribute names with : characters in them and everything works fine. I cant seem to target the attributes either to delete them.
