i was wondering if anyone knew why i was having the problem i am having with xml being displayed in flash mx. the tutorial on this site works fine, but when i write my own xml file and modify the as, i encounter the problems. ideally, i wolud like to be able to load text files and urls of images to be loaded into flash, and i pretty much know how to do all of this. flash recognises the xml file fine and actually loads it, however, when i try to use the nodeValue action, i am always given the value “null.” this is because flash thinks the node is an element rather than a text node (type 1 rather than 3, when you use nodeType.) i don’t know why it does this when it is obviously a text node. any ideas?
