View Full Version : load movable type XML

08-29-2003, 07:52 AM

I apologize in advance... I've tried (hard) looking through forums and reading tuts to figure this out, and i'm probably just retarded, but i just can't get this right

I want to load content from an xml file into a textbox

my xml (created from mt) is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<rss version="2.0"

<dc:creator>[email protected]</dc:creator>
<admin:generatorAgent rdf:resource="http://www.movabletype.org/?v=2.64" />

<body><![CDATA[ blah blah blah...]]></body>
<guid isPermaLink="false">2@http://www.blah.com/</guid>


I guess my question is whether i need to change anything in the xml, and if not, then what would the ActionScript look like? A hint? anything? please?!! :confused: (i feel like an arse)

NO you probably don't need to change anything. But what exactly from the XML file do you want to appear in the text box?

Hi, sorry, I want everything between <entry></entry> to load inside a dynamic textfield called "textBox". What would the actionscript look like?

also, i would like to use this for news updates, so there would gradually be more <entry>s added to the xml. Do i need additional actionscripting for this?

Thank you for your time
