    hi

    here's some really basic code.

    --------------------------------------------
    myXML = new XML();

    loginElement = myXML.createElement("LOGIN");

    myXML.attributes.username = "me";
    myXML.attributes.password = "secret";
    myXML.appendChild(loginElement);

    trace (myXML.toString());
    --------------------------------------------

    the output i get from this is

    password="me" username="secret" <LOGIN />

    as you can see, its malformed mssing the opening tag. When I send this to an asp page it obviously falls on its bum as the xml is bad.

    Why on earth is this happening? Can anyone help? PLEASE PLEASE OH GOD PLEASE !!!

    Remember your creating a tree:

    Code:
    //create a new xml object
    myxml=new XML()
    //create a new xml element
    myxml.appendChild((new XML()).createElement("login"));
    //set the attributes of this node
    myxml.firstChild.attributes.username = "me"; 
    myxml.firstChild.attributes.password = "secret";
    //close the node
    myxml.firstChild.appendChild(login);
    //whats the output?
    trace(myxml.toString())

    the output window displays:

    Code:
    <login password="secret" username="me"></login>
    Hope that helps!
