Hi,

What's the easiest way of saving data into an xml file from flash MX.
I'm trying to find a way to do this, avoiding the use of php or cfm...

Thanx,

you can't save any information "into" and XML file, but you can use XML to pass information from Flash to a Database...

the below links can give you some insite as to what you are looking for:

if there is another way that does not use a database, and stores information somehow, then I want to know as well :)

well, saving some simple data locally using shared object, ok ... but i don't think u can do without any server side scripting like php, cfm or asp ...

let me know too if there is a way to do that

FYR - a simple way to save xml using ... PHP

and links also for the xmlparser function if u need to do a flat file db.

if u don't want server side scripting then maybe u may want to store ur info in cookies by using javascript. Not sure if that is appropriate coz you didn't mention what is the info stored for. :)
