Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Displaying blog posts, part of ActionScript 3.0: Working with XML.
In this chapter we will look at bringing data from a blog into Flash.…We will start by processing the different episodes and displaying the data from each of those episodes.…If you are following along go to your local route folder on your hard drive.…Mine is in my Sites folders and I am going to go to the ActionScript folder.…Then I have a folder called 06.…Now you may need to create that folder right now.…Instead of that folder, I have an FLA file a file called grabber.php…which is the same file we were using in the last chapter.…And then we have our classes that we use to grab and parse our XML data.…
Those classes include our RSSReader Class, our Grabber Class and our Savor Class.…So you should have all those files in there.…If you have give access to the exercise files you can just copy those files from the Chapter 6 folder into this folder…and if you don't have access to the exercise files you can just copy the files you have been working…with up to this point into this folder.…So let's open up 01_episodes.fla in Flash.…
