Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Prerequisites, part of ActionScript 3.0: Working with XML.
Before we dive deep into XML, let's talk a little bit about what we are going to be doing in this title or what code we should already know coming to this title. You should know about how to create your own class files, about what a package is, how to setup a package folder structure and how to import classes and how to create methods and properties. You should know about the URLRequest, URLLoader classes and how to load data from an external URL and you should be familiar with the terms public and private.
You should also be familiar with creating your own functions, loops and arrays. Throughout this title we will be working a lot with functions and arrays and variables and classes and everything so I am going to refer to those objects as if you already know what they are. And sometimes we will already have code inside of our files and so I expect you to kind of be able to look at a file and kind of understand how code is working. If what we looked at so far in this movie looks pretty familiar then you are ready to go and feel free to advance and head through this title. If not, you're welcome to advance anyway, however I recommend that you view the ActionScript 3.0 in Flash CS3 Essential Training title to get yourself familiar with the basics of ActionScript.
So there's a look at some of the requirements for this title and now that you are ready with that, let's get started and learn some XML.
