I need the experts on this one...

I have some code but need some help making it work...

I am trying to display data from a mySQL database to a datagrid or listbox...

The php code is working as it was tested in the browser but the actionscript is playing difficult...

Here is my code in Flash:

var theXML:XML = new XML();
theXML.ignoreWhite = true;

theXML.onLoad = function(){
	var nodes = this.firstChild.childNodes;
	var i:Number;
	for(i=0;i<nodes.length;i++){
		testList.addItem(nodes[i].firstChild.nodeValue);
	}
	
	
}
theXML.load("http://mysite/myfile.php");

Open in new window

The main problem is that AS3 is not recognizing the load request and onLoad handler...

I just need to be pointed in the right direction on this one...How can the above code be written in AS3?

That's AS2 code...  ;)

Check out this tutorial on how to do that with AS3...

Thanks CyanBlue for responding...

After a few hours of playing around with the code I came up with this working model:
var file:String = "/scripts/Product.php";
var xmlData:XML= new XML()

var theURL_ur:URLRequest = new URLRequest(file);
var loader_ul:URLLoader = new URLLoader(theURL_ur);
loader_ul.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, fileLoaded);

function fileLoaded(e:Event):void
{
xmlData = XML(loader_ul.data);

var array = xmlData.children();
var howMany = xmlData.children().length();

	for(var i = 0; i < howMany; i++) {
		TestGrid.addItem({UPC:array[i]});
	}
}

Open in new window

Thanks.
