    XML not loading...

    phi2265 Level 1
      After trying some things on my own, I went to the help docs...
      I have the function exactly like it is in the docs and it doesn't work. I don't know if I'm missing something and I just dont see it.. or if what i have is wrong.. heres what I have...

      [Bindable]
      public var articleXML:XML;
      public var XMLLoader:URLLoader;
      public var XMLFile:String = "articles.xml";
      public var XMLReq:URLRequest = new URLRequest(XMLFile);

      public function loadArticles():void{
      XMLLoader.load(XMLReq);
      XMLLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, XMLLoaded);
      }

      public function XMLLoaded(event:Event):void{
      xmltest.text = "loaded";
      var loader:URLLoader = URLLoader(event.target);
      articleXML = new XML(loader.data);
      xmltest.text = articleXML.toXMLString();
      }

      for some reason the debug version of flash doesnt install.. err.. I install it but nothing changes.. so I can't use trace.

      anyone see something wrong here? I think this should work.
