Click to See Complete Forum and Search --> : an .onLoad handler "that gets the xml doc as a param" - sorta?

05-15-2001, 11:02 AM
I would like to write a generic "onLoad" routine that handles and dispatches results for a variety of XML documents that are doing loads:


function login () {
loginDoc = new XML();
loginDoc.onload = this.valueOf().loginDone; loginDoc.load("..."); } //

function loginDone () {
// code to discover the xml doc that called this onload

I guess what I would have liked is that macromedia returned both success, and the xml document as the parameters of the onload handler. What can be done to simulate this?

did you ever figure out how to do this? i'm having the same problem.

I guess I'm at a loss as to why you would need something of that nature....

You'd only be saving 4 or 5 lines of code... unless I misunderstood your question...

Well, my original post was about having a
single, generic send and receive utility, that
would be called with the xml doc as a parameter, and
then would call back the originator.

I figured out a while back how to do this.

I now have a movie called FlashTalk which
has an entry point called flashtalk.ivory()

It takes an xml movie as a parameter, and then
name of a callback function.

When the xml arrives, it does a callback.
It was not simple to figure out. See
