    reloading XML data afert event - not working

    Bare_LV
      Hi, this is a Slide show AS. XML data is being parsed to an Array, and slideshow starts, and keeps going in loop.
      So far it's working fine, but I wan't to reload XML data (to check if there are newer images, [cause this is Standalone file]) after last element of the Array (picture) has been viewed. I spent two nights trying to solve this, but nothing happens. I mean, even after the XML file is updated, SWF keeps showing an old images. This must work without restarting the SWF player.
      Any ideas?

          Why is it that people strip the credits of the code they use? Your code should include:

          /****************************/
          /* Crossfading slide show */
          /* Author: Todd Dominey */
          /* http://whatdoiknow.org */
          /* http://domineydesign.com */
          /****************************/

          Now, you might have changed something but you shouldn't remove the credits!

            I removed as much as I could, before posting it here. As you can see, my
            post is Looong enough anyway, and I was just afraid that people would not
            like to read through the long post.

            The problem stays the same.

            I've tried to copy this "xml.load" part into another function:

            images_xml = new XML();
            images_xml.ignoreWhite=true;
            images_xml.onLoad = parse;
            images_xml.load("images.xml");

            and then call this function from the function imageGen(data) that's checking
            if p==data.length.
            But it's not loading new pictures to the slideshow..

            Anyone knows why it's not working?

            Thanks.
