Default reformating xml on the fly for the tree component


I want to use the tree component but I have an xml structure that is not formatted in a way the tree component reads xml. Would it be possible (i know anything is possible, I mean possible for me!) to bring the xml into flash, reformat it and then get the tree component to read the reformatted xml?

Any pointers / advice on how to do this would be most appreciated.

I realised that I put this post in the wrong forum - I have put in the components forum now rather than flash mx and lower components forum. Please post replies there and not here.

This took me a long time to figure out. It isn't the whole code (that I use) but I think it will work on it's own. Items between # are variables you need to name yourself.

function tree_pop() {
	var xml_object:XML = new XML();
		for (i=0; i< #NUMBER OF ITEMS TO ADD# ; i++) {
			current = # REFERENCE POINT (can be number or whatever) #;
			labels = # ITEM TO DISPLAY# ;

			this[current + "_node"] = xml_object.createElement("node");
			this[current + "_node"].attributes.label = labels;
			this[current + "_node"].attributes.current = current;
			this[current + "_node"].attributes.parent = parent;

			this[parent + "_node"].appendChild(this[current + "_node"]);
	groups_tree.dataProvider = xml_object;

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
