    xml not loading completely

    Hi,
    I have a relatively small actionscript that colors the states on a map based on xml data. It worked fine for a long time, but I just added a lot of data. With the new data, the xml file is a lot bigger; and the states stop getting colored around Utah. It seems to be processing the map before it has finished processing the xml file. To check, I removed all of the Texas data and Utah then displayed correctly.
    Thanks for any help,
    Debbie

    Actionscript Code:
    var dp = new Array();
    dp_xml = new XML();
    dp_xml.ignoreWhite = true;
    dp_xml.load('dplaws.xml'#;
    dp_xml#onLoad = function#sucess# {
            if #sucess# {
                    parseFile#dp_xml#;
                    showArray##;
            }
    };



    function Map#state, category, qid, question, response# {
            this#state = state;
            this#category = category;
            this#qid = qid;
            this#question = question;
            this#response = response;

            if##substring#response,1,3#=="Yes"# && #qid == "b"## {
                myColor = new Color#state#;
                myColor#setRGB#0xA2B5CD#;
            } else if##substring#response,1,3#!="Yes"# && #qid == "b"## {
                myColor = new Color#state#;
                myColor#setRGB#0xcccccc#;
            }
    }


    function parseFile#xmlDoc_xml# {
            temp = new Array##;
            for #var a = 0; a<xmlDoc_xml#firstChild#childNodes#length; a++# {
                    for #var b = 0; b<xmlDoc_xml#firstChild#firstChild#childNodes#length; b++# {
                            temp#b# = xmlDoc_xml#firstChild#childNodes#a##childNodes#b##firstChild#nodeValue;
                    }
                    n = new Map#temp#0#, temp#1#, temp#2#, temp#3#, temp#4##;
                    dp#push#n#;
            }
    }


    function showArray##{
    for #var z = 0; z<dp.length; z++# {
            trace#dp[z].state#;
            trace#dp[z].category#;
            trace#dp[z].question#;
            trace#dp[z].response#;
            trace#dp[z].qid#;
    }
    }

    AS2 is pretty forgiving language and xml is not native to it so it does like what browsers do and loads as best as can be interpreted. My guess is that your xml is malformed. Try opening your xml in an editor or even IE to make sure it is structured correctly. This will show you if there is an issue.


    Oxygen has a good free one.

    I don't think your code is in proper AS syntax..


    try this:

    PHP Code:
    var dp = new Array();
    dp_xml = new XML();
    dp_xml.ignoreWhite true;

    dp_xml.onLoad = function(sucess) {
        if (
    sucess) {
            
    parseFile(dp_xml);
            
    showArray();
        }
    };

    dp_xml.load('dplaws.xml');

    function 
    Map(statecategoryqidquestionresponse) {
        
    this.state state;
        
    this.category category;
        
    this.qid qid;
        
    this.question question;
        
    this.response response;

        if ((
    substring(response13) == "Yes" && qid == "b")) {
            
    myColor = new Color(state);
            
    myColor.setRGB(0xA2B5CD);
        } else if ((
    substring(response13) != "Yes" && qid == "b")) {
            
    myColor = new Color(state);
            
    myColor.setRGB(0xcccccc);
        }
    }


    function 
    parseFile(xmlDoc_xml) {
        
    temp = new Array();
        for (var 
    0a<xmlDoc_xml.firstChild.childNodes.lengtha++) {
            for (var 
    0b<xmlDoc_xml.firstChild.firstChild.childNodes.lengthb++) {
                
    temp[b] = xmlDoc_xml.firstChild.childNodes[a].childNodes[b].firstChild.nodeValue;
            }
            
    = new Map(temp[0], temp[1], temp[2], temp[3], temp[4]);
            
    dp.push(n);
        }
    }


    function 
    showArray() {
        for (var 
    0z<dp.lengthz++) {
            
    trace(dp[z].state);
            
    trace(dp[z].category);
            
    trace(dp[z].question);
            
    trace(dp[z].response);
            
    trace(dp[z].qid);
        }

    hope this help

    Hi,

    It was fixed over at AS,org, it was indeed a malformed xml file.
