Updating XML attributes based on listbox selection
on Mar 24, 2010 at 3:37:36 pm

I'm using the code from gotoandLearn to read from an XML file and generate listBox items which, when clicked, load an external flv.

var vlist:XML = new XML();
vlist.ignoreWhite = true;

vlist.onLoad = function() {
var videos:Array = this.firstChild.childNodes;
for(i=0;i videoList.addItem(videos[i].attributes.desc,videos[i].attributes.url);


videoList.selectedIndex = 0;


var vidList:Object = new Object();

vidList.change = function() { x).data);



What I'm trying to do is read another attribute field from the XML and display it in a separate text box on the stage. For instance, a "speaker" attribute.

So I add:

var speakers:Array = new Array();

And stick this in the for loop:


Now, I can manually read and display the XML "Speaker" attribute in my textbox by specifying the Array number [0], or [1], etc... But I'm unsure how to make it update based on what is selected in the listBox.

(This is in flash 8 by the way)

The other thing I forgot:

I also need to track another XML attribute so it updates based on my listbox selection. It's for a corresponding PDF files. The address of the PDF would need to be 'loaded' into the button each time the user selects something new in the list box.

This is for a projector file.. if that makes any difference.
