    Ok, I've included a simple version of the xml I made. Now there's only the textfield with the link in it. You might see some code leftover from the original file, but I've managed to remove most of it.

    Have you used xml before in flash? If not, things might seem a bit difficult but just let me know and I'll try to explain.

    Regards
    Michael

    Thanks so much! I wrote mine completely differently:

    http://board.flashkit.com/board/showthread.php?t=687846

    I just keep running into a bunch of different ways to do it from Xlink to CDATA and none seem to be working for me. I've used XML before in Flash, but it's usually been pretty basic stuff. I'm trying to see how I can get your example to work in my file and/or vice versa. Thanks again!

    Yeah, I can see that. Hopefully you'll be able to use the file I've included. If not, just let me know.

    Good luck

    is there a way to make a link in XML by using components rather than a dynamic text box?

    I'm using flash 8, and the XML CONNECTOR to call my xml file and bind all my components.

    I've created an employee database that has:

    1 list box
    2 text area components


    in the list box, names are generated from the xml...

    once you click on a name, the 2 text area components are populated

    With in these text area components are the populated fields: 'website' and 'email'


    right now they are populated in the format: http://www.blah5645blah.com / info@blah4535blah.com

    The boxes populate, but I dont know how to make them a link.

    Does it require me to add actionscript and/or a hyperlink cell renderer? or is the solution within the XML file?


    also...these text area components both have the HTML option set to 'TRUE'

    Another followup for those who have trouble:

    I was trying all of these methods to no avail for an hour or so to no avail. but once I turned off font embedding worked like a charm.

    Actionscript I modded and made up too:


    function loadXML(loaded) {
    if (loaded) {
    _root.business1 = this.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[0].childNodes[0].attributes.text;
    _root.tagline1 = this.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[0].childNodes[1].attributes.text;
    _root.location1 = this.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[0].childNodes[1].attributes.click_url;
    _root.business2 = this.firstChild.childNodes[1].childNodes[0].childNodes[0].attributes.text;
    _root.tagline2 = this.firstChild.childNodes[1].childNodes[0].childNodes[1].attributes.text;
    _root.location2 = this.firstChild.childNodes[1].childNodes[0].childNodes[1].attributes.click_url;
    _root.business3 = this.firstChild.childNodes[2].childNodes[0].childNodes[0].attributes.text;
    _root.tagline3 = this.firstChild.childNodes[2].childNodes[0].childNodes[1].attributes.text;
    _root.location3 = this.firstChild.childNodes[2].childNodes[0].childNodes[1].attributes.click_url;
    biz1.text = _root.business1;
    tag1.text = _root.tagline1;
    url1.text = _root.location1;
    biz2.text = _root.business2;
    tag2.text = _root.tagline2;
    url2.text = _root.location2;
    biz3.text = _root.business3;
    tag3.text = _root.tagline3;
    url3.text = _root.location3;
    } else {
    trace("file not loaded!");
    }
    }
    xmlData = new XML();
    xmlData.ignoreWhite = true;
    xmlData.onLoad = loadXML;
    xmlData.load("citysearch.xml");

    THEN I MADE BUTTONS TO GO ON TOP WITH ALPHA OF 0

    on (release) {
    getURL(_root.location1, "_blank");
    }

    on (release) {
    getURL(_root.location2, "_blank");
    }

    on (release) {
    getURL(_root.location3, "_blank");
    }

    Just make sure you turn on EXPRESSION in the getURL or it won't work.

    I can't upload an XML file so you'll have to use this link:

    FLA is attached.
