I am trying to take the results (xml format) from an HTTPService call and create an XMLList from it so I can create an XMLListCollection from that to use to populate a tree component.  The tree component I am using has a custom built itemRenderer to put checkboxes to the left of the tree item.  But i keep getting an error when tryiong to convert to XMLList.  here is a portion of the code that handles the result from the httpservice

public function handleLocations(event:ResultEvent):void{
				this.t.text=event.result.top.toString();
				folderList = event.result.top as XMLList;
				
				folderCollection = new XMLListCollection(folderList);
				checkTree.dataProvider = folderCollection;
			}

Event.result is an XML object, so you are casting XML to XMLList which is illegal. Assuming folderList is an XMLList object, try changing your code to this:
public function handleLocations(event:ResultEvent):void
{
this.t.text=event.result.top.toString();
folderList =  XMLList( event.result.top);				
folderCollection = new XMLListCollection(folderList);
checkTree.dataProvider = folderCollection;
}
