    Filtering XML data

    benjipotter400
      I want to filter XML data called from an HTTPService (in e4x format) by 'name' and 'keywords'. Can these filters be applied to the HTTPService call so that only those files are returned or are all the files returned and only those that fit the filter criteria displayed?

      I aim to have up to 2,500-3,000 root nodes and imagine this will take an age to transfer and populate the data grid.

      What are my options?
      Thanks for any input.

          First this forum is intended for questions about Flex Builder. Flex language questions should be posted in the Flex General Discussion forum.

          You can't directly apply "filters" to an HTTPService call. It is just a transport, a protocol. You will have to have some logic on the platform that is serving the xml to do the filtering. You CAN pass parameters via httpservice to the server platform. What is your server environment? Java, CF, .net, PHP...?
