    Making the wind blow -flash and xml

    Hi
    I am trying to get the values out of an xml file to manipulate the rotation of a movie clip.
    The idea is that an xml file will provide wind direction data and a movie clip of an arrow will be rotated to match the xml file data.
    Here is the actionscript code at the moment and the xml code
    any help would be much appreciated - for my sanity as much as any thing
    cheers
    Hope this makes sense
    import mx.utils.Delegate;

    var Wind:Array = new Array();

    xcWind.addEventListener("result",Delegate.create(t his,gotXML));
    function gotXML(ev:Object):Void {
    var mXML:XML = ev.target.results;
    var nodes = mXML.firstChild.childNodes.length;
    for (var i=0;i<nodes;i++) {
    var node = mXML.firstChild.childNodes[i];
    Wind.push({ winddirection:node.childNodes[0].firstChild.nodeValue
    });
    }
    for (i=0;i<Wind.length;i++) {
    var clipName:String = "circle" + i + "_mc";
    this.attachMovie("circle_mc",clipName,i);
    this[clipName]._rotation = VALUE OF WINDDIRECTION,_x = 150,_y = 150;
    }
    }
    xcWind.trigger();
    VALUE OF WINDDIRECTION is what the rotation should equal

    I think you left out the XML code.

    Is the problem accessing the data in the XML code?

    Thanks

    Cheers for the reply Tupps
    I can get the XML data into a text area
    eg. wind =300
    but cant get that data to be value of the rotation
    cheers

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    <document>
    <locationdata>
    <winddirection>300</winddirection>
    </locationdata>
    </document>
