  1. #1

    Afrostyle how to call RSS

    for this feed:
    http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/india

    how do i call this in my Flash file..for a simple local xml file- the code works and now that im trying to connect it with an external xml file.. does not work becuase the structure is different..

    how do i populate a value from the above RSS into my news_txt textfield:

    _root.thetitle = this.firstChild.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[1].firstChild.nodeValue;
    news_txt.htmlText = _root.thetitle;

    http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/topstories

    and this is how im trying to read the news title(s) into my "news_txt" textfield:
    _root.thetitle = this.firstChild.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[1].firstChild.nodeValue;
    news_txt.htmlText = _root.thetitle;
