    Cross Domain policiy issue...

    Karim Bizid

      Hi everyone,


      I'm having a cross domain policy issue and after struggling for two days straight... It's time to ask you

      guys for help.


      I'm creating a simple site where I want to show my last 5 tweets, but I have to mention that is't been years ago since

      I've made something in Flash and apperently al lot has changed since then.


      Let me show you what I've got:


      The AS:




      var loadXML:XML = new XML();

          loadXML.ignoreWhite = true;

          loadXML.onLoad = processXML;

          loadXML.load("twitter.php"); //used when swf in placed on server



          function processXML(loaded:Boolean)





                  var node = this.firstChild;

                  tweet_1.text = node.childNodes[0].childNodes[2].firstChild;

                  tweet_2.text = node.childNodes[1].childNodes[2].firstChild;

                  tweet_3.text = node.childNodes[2].childNodes[2].firstChild;

                  tweet_4.text = node.childNodes[3].childNodes[2].firstChild;


                  var follower_count = node.childNodes[9].childNodes[11].childNodes[9].firstChild;// Creates variable

                  trace(follower_count); //loads variable into output


                  follower_count_txt.text = follower_count;// show follower count in text box






                  error_txt.text = "Error loading XML file";



                          for (i=0; i<follower_count; i++) // <-- problem occurs here


                              _root.attachMovie("tweep_mc", "tweep"+i+"_mc", i);

                              _root["tweep"+i+"_mc"]._x = 150 + random(500);

                              _root["tweep"+i+"_mc"]._y = 150 + random(500);







          follow_btn.onRelease = function()





      facebook_btn.onRelease = function()









      The Crossdomain file


      <!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">

      <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="all"/>


      <allow-access-from domain="*twitter.com"/>

      <allow-access-from domain="*"/>




      When I test the movie offline it works fine (even with Shift+CMD+Return I get no output errors), but on the server I have no

      result in the dynamic text box.

      Google doesn't get met helpfull files either...

      My brain is baked and I'm guessing I'm missing a simple thing that stocks this script from working.


      Hope you can help me out!


      Thanks in advance
