my subject is pretty much my problem, i am using MX2004’s XPathApi ‘selectSingleNode’ which is working nicely, i have done a wee bit of fiddling;
_root.selectedText = "About Us " centreMe.textContent.htmlText = mx.xpath.XPathAPI.selectSingleNode(this.firstChild, "/data/item[@name = '"+ _root.selectedText + "']/*");
I would like to be able to change the content depending on what the variable is, and this seems to work fine. The content should be formatted text (with
etc…), so i am using CDATA tags to make sure no confusion is made with <>'s (and if i dont it only pulls in a small section - as expected).
Only problem is that for some reason it forgets it is a html formatted bit of CDATA and spits out the
tags with the rest of the content… i have placed in “centreMe.textContent.html = true;” make sure it knows its html but it really doesnt want to know.
I tried using selectNodeList to an array and printing this - which works, without CDATA tags, but adds a really annoying “,” at the end of each “array item” it is printing.
Any help would be fantastic as i have also been through an entire saga to get here trying different techniques to get html tags displaying correctly within CDATA - and i guess this is ultimately my problem?
Thanks for your time!
edit > now i am having a really “noobie” problem (if my one above wasnt already enough)
bla.html = true; bla.htmlText = "this is frustrating?";

bla.html = true; bla.htmlText = "<b> this is frustrating?</b>";
