    importing image from xml - with a twist...

    OK - so here is my dilema -

    I'm creating an MP3 radio/player

    I am trying to import an image file from XML.

    The XML already contins variables (text) that are getting passed into thie flash movie.

    The end result is this -

    Artist:
    Title:
    Label:

    THEN next to all of this - I want to load a picture of the musician.

    The songs are grabbed at random - so all the invormation is included in a SONG node.

    the code looks like this:

    PHP Code:

    <song>
    <
    artist>Foo Fighters</artist>
    <
    title>Watershed</title>
    <
    label>Capital Records</label>
    </
    song
    i have tried just about everything.. from adding a new node
    PHP Code:
    <imgSRC>foo.jpg</imgSRC
    and all sorts of onLoad commands.
    I don't know if i'm messing up the XML or the AScript (or both)

    does anyone have a solution for this problem?

    greatly appreciated

    RR
    working on it

    There isn't any standard for adding an image, you will have to write the Actionscript code to handle loading the jpg file (as a new movie), and then deciding where to display it.

    Thanks

    There's a tutorial on the Macromedia site on this:
    http://www.macromedia.com/support/fl...slideshow_xml/

    Basically, you can add the image path as an xml attribute and then load the jpeg file into a target movie clip. It's also easier to handle values like artist, title, name etc as xml attributes rather than have to go thru all the nodes...
