Default xml type question

Hi everyone,

I'm having trouble reading data from a php file, which echos some data in an xml format.

print "<dataset>";
$row = pg_fetch_row($result, 0); //connection part abbreviated
print "<data>";
print "<rownum>1</rownum>";
print "<kid>". $row[0] ."</kid>";
print "<mname>". $row[1] ."</mname>";
print "<gtype>". $row[2] ."</gtype>";
print "</data>";

print "</dataset>";

on the flash side the code should start working when i press a button but nothing seems to be occur. How can I read the data entered from php and display it in flash????

on (release) {
dataXML = new XML();
dataXML.onLoad = convertXML;

function convertXML() {

mainTag = new XML();
elementTag = new XML();
dataList = new Array();
elementList = new Array();
dlist = new Array();
mainTag = this.firstChild;

if (dataXML.loaded) {
if (mainTag.nodeName == "dataSet") {
dataList = mainTag.childNodes;
for (i = 0; i < dataList.length; i++) {
if (dataList[i].nodeName == "data") {
elementList = dataList[i].childNodes;
for (j = 0; j < elementList.length; j++) {
elementTag = elementList[j];
elementType = elementTag.nodeName;

if (elementType == "rownum")
rownum = elementTag.firstChild.nodeValue;

if (elementType == "kid")
kid = elementTag.firstChild.nodeValue;

if (elementType == "mname")
mname = elementTag.firstChild.nodeValue;

if (elementType == "gtype")
gtype = elementTag.firstChild.nodeValue;
// Adds the label and data to the URL.
dlist.push(rownum, kid, mname, gtype);

I notice you are missing


which will cause no end of problems.

Also if you put a trace in your onload handler function is it called?
