I want to catch a specific id-number in an xml-string and assign the corresponding values to textfields.

In the example below I want to compare a predifined id-number something like this way:
var bookLength=myXML.Book;
for (var i:int; i < bookLength.length(); i++ ) {
if (myXML.Book[i].id==0684826976){
title_TF.text=myXML.Book[i].title;
author_TF.text=myXML.Book[i].author;
}
}

Open in new window

so that the title_TF and author_TF  is populated with the title (Undaunted Courage) and author (Stephen Ambrose) of the specified id.
How exactly would I do that.

  <author>Sir Arthur Conan Doyle</author>

As you are using AS3.0 use the e4x parsing:
title_TF.text = myXML.Book.(id == "0684826976").title;
author_TF.text = myXML.Book.(id == "0684826976").author;
