    resolved [RESOLVED] Search XML via EX4 and descendants

    AS: 3.0 | Platform: Flex 3

    I've been trying to figure this out for hours now and I've unable to decipher how to either correct or workaround this problem. Let me bring you up to speed. My user is doing a search, through a Tree component. To maintain the speed of the app, I convert the dataprovider to XML using the SimpleXMLEncoder (Of course this could be the start of my fall). Anyway, I have a list similar to this:

    Code:
    <root>
        <source>
    	<item>
    	    <children></children>
    	    <description />
    	    <folder>true</folder>
    	    <itemid>123</itemid>
    	    <itemname>Some name here</itemname>
    	    <link>/blah/blah/blah.aspx</link>
    	    <parentid>1</parentid>
    	</item>
        </source>
    </root>
    Okay, if you notice SOME of the nodes may contain children. If that is the case, I would like the search to check those children and the grandchildren, and great grandchildren is any. So I've been trying to figure out the best method to perform this. Unfortunately, I haven't deviced a way to actually do it.

    I will need to be able to search the itemname and the parentid. So when I was using the descendant function I was doing this:

    actionscript Code:
    xmlList = xml.descendants().(itemname.toString().toLowerCase() == searchParam.toLowerCase());

    However using this method, it would never return a value, even though I know the value I am searching for is within the XML variable. So with that failure, I've decided to manually zoom through the XML to find what I am looking for. I am using a FOR LOOP to accomplish this. This is what I have so far:

    actionscript Code:
    for(var i:int = 0; i < xmlDoc.source.item.length(); i++)
    {
        var xmNode:XMLList = xmlDoc.source.item[i];

        /*** HOW SHOULD I SEARCH THIS NOW ****/
    }

    This is where I need some assistance. If anyone has a clue or suggestion, please let me know.
