AS3 XML trying to create a search feature using Flash

I used the Using XML in Flash CS3/AS3 - by kirupa | 17 July 2007, However all you have are trace statements. I am new to AS3 and I am trying to make a search feature using Flash AS3 and XML. I need for the user to be able to enter word in the input box and if found in the xml display the corrosponding location node in a text box. I cannot figuar this out after trying for 3 days. I used this XML:

<?xml version=“1.0” encoding=“utf-8”?>


<Searchtext Wordlookup=“color”>
<location>Home Page Overview</location>

<Searchtext Wordlookup=“detailed view”>
<location>Home Page Overview</location>

<Searchtext Wordlookup=“individual performance”>
<location>Home Detailed View</location>

<Searchtext Wordlookup=“attendance”>
<location>Profile Manage Attendance</location>

<Searchtext Wordlookup=“add attendance”>
<location>Profile Manage Attendance</location>


and this is what I have for actionscript:

stage.focus = searchTerm_txt;
search_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, ParseSearchfor)

var xmlLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
var xmlData:XML = new XML();

xmlLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, LoadXML);
xmlLoader.load(new URLRequest(“xml/searchFor.xml”));

function LoadXML(e:Event):void {
xmlData = new XML(;

function ParseSearchfor(searchtextInput:XML):void {

var searchtextAttributes:XMLList = searchtextInput.Searchtext.attribute(“Wordlookup”);
var locationList:XMLList = searchtextInput.Searchtext.location;

var usersInput:String = query_txt.text;
var locationResults:String = results_txt. text;

if(usersInput == searchtextAttributes){
locationResults = locationList;
locationResults = “Search can not be found. Check Spelling or enter new search.”;

Will you please help me?

Thank you,
