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
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.
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...?
