Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

    [AS3] XML class problems

    Hi All

    Im working on my first AS3 class, but are stocked with a problem.
    My idea is to make a xml class, where i gave the url for the xml doc in the flash files.

    my class right now look like:
    package classes {
     public class xmlClass {
      public var xmlMenu:XML;
      public var xmlContent:XML;
      public var url:String;
      public function xmlClass(url:String=""){
                var xmlLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
       xmlLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, showXML);
       xmlLoader.load(new URLRequest(url));
      public function showXML(e:Event):void {
       trace("XML Loaded");
       XML.ignoreWhitespace = true;
       var xmlMenu:XML = new XML(event.target.data);
       var xmlContent:XML = new XML(event.target.data);  
    And my flash look like
    import classes.xmlClass;
    var xml:xmlClass = new xmlClass("xml/main.xml");
    But i cant get it to work :S

    i get the output:
    1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: Event.

    I really hope somebody can help!

    You dont need to put ingnorewhitespace anymore I believe. Also you don't need to redeclare a variable if you already did it at the top of the class.

    Check out my XML Loader Class
