I have a basic ticker that runs a piece of text. I want to periodically make a request via a XMLSocket to a java servlet to get the latest ticker text. I can't seem to get it to work.. Any ideas? I am fairly new to actionscript and flash. I know I could do a loadVariables or loadMovie and pass that a URL or a file and load the text dynamically from there, but I want to pull it off this socket. Thanks
