    Simple: Number of nodes in an XML file?

    I'm migrating to using AS3 for my XML and am missing something basic. How do I find the length of my XML document, the number of total nodes? Clearly I need some sleep.

    For example...

    PHP Code:
    var myXML:XML = new XML();
    var 
    XML_URL:String "http://www.example.com/Sample3.xml";
    var 
    myXMLURL:URLRequest = new URLRequest(XML_URL);
    var 
    myLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader(myXMLURL);
    myLoader.addEventListener("complete"xmlLoaded);

    function 
    xmlLoaded(event:Event):void
    {
        
    myXML XML(myLoader.data);
        
    trace("Data loaded.");

        
    //How do I find the length of myXML?

    Hi,
    if your xml is like
    Code:
    <data>
    <people>
    <person>Steve</person>
    <person>John</person>
    </people>
    </data>
    then, as far as I remember, you can get the number of <person>s by
    Code:
    myXML = XML(myLoader.data); 
    trace(myXML.people.person.length());//it must trace 2
    I hope, I'm not wrong. At least, you can try this.
