How to pass vars from XML to a document class?

Hi there,

I’m creating a flash project and would like to pilot the most variables (eg: colors, texts, sizes, …) from a single XML file and then spread them in my document class.

Could you tell me how to mod this ?

    public var yourName:String;
    public var myXMLLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();

    public function intro():void {
         myXMLLoader.load(new URLRequest("xml/config.xml"));
         myXMLLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, processXML);

    public function processXML(e:Event):void {
        var myXML:XML = new XML(;
        yourName = [email protected];
        trace (yourName); // doesnt return anything
        myXMLLoader.removeEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, processXML);
        myXMLLoader = null;

That’s how my xml is coded :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

        <![CDATA[My name...]]>

Right now I got no errors but I got nothing when tracing the “yourName” var.

I must be missing something,

Thank you sincerly,
