    XML and SWF files

    Hi I have just received a xml and flash CS3 file from another client
    They would like me to add some animation in here

    How do I add a Swf or movie into xml scripting without touching my fla file

    Also I can't seem to edit the fla file to add a holder as when I test my movie (make it a swf file) it's all jumbled.

    I'm not sure who created this so I can't ask the designer.

    Hope you can help, thanks heaps
    =)

    I'm not really sure what you mean about adding a SWF inito XML scripting. Could you explain a little more?

    It would be helpful if you could post the .fla (or a stripped down version of it) or the xml.

    sorry for not being more in depth =)

    basically I have a .fla file from a client and the whole .fla is using xml externally and I want to add an animation to this .fla through xml like linking it, is this possible or do I have to add it to the .fla stage?

    problem number 2.
    the .fla file that they have given me. I'm unable to export as a swf file, thus meaning I can't change it as when I do export it, it's all jumbled up, is there a simple easy solutions i'm not covering, to not be jumbled!

    thanks for your help =)

    Animation can only be done in the .fla file. When you say "I'm unable to export as a swf file" it doesn't make sense without more info.

    okay great thanks. sorry it is a bit confusing.
    Because I can't access the .fla file. is there an easy way to add an image externally without touching the .fla file?
    here is a little of my code

    <texte><![CDATA[Le premier régime, celui des marins, remonte à Louis XIV !<br/>
    <br/>
    En 1910 et en 1928-1930, on s’efforce, sans grand succès, d’établir un système de retraite pour les plus démunis.<br/>
    <br/>
    En 1941 est créée une allocation aux vieux travailleurs salariés, ancêtre du minimum vieillesse.<br/>
    <br/>
    En 1945, plusieurs régimes professionnels disparates coexistent, mais la plus grande partie de la population n’est pas vraiment couverte pour le risque vieillesse.

    <br/>
    C’est la naissance du régime général de retraite, qui s’applique à tous les salariés du secteur privé, hors agriculture, et qui fonctionne par répartition. L’âge minimum pour percevoir une retraite complète est alors fixé à 65 ans.<br/>
    <br/>
    L’idée était de créer un régime unique pour tous ; mais plusieurs professions et organismes ont préféré conserver leur régime : c’est l’origine des régimes spéciaux.

    No. The flash's code is surely set up to display the nodes as they were first written in the xml. Adding a new node won't make the flash display it if there is no code for it. You already have an image named image1.png, you could change that image.
