having a bit of an issue with gathering data and displaying
data using php -> xml -> flex.
Issue is this, database sends contents of news table, php
makes it into <news></news> with author/message/date
All's well when I import into flex with the ResultEvent.
However what I would like is to have the data split up and
dynamically inserted into a middle canvas on my main.mxml. this
middle canvas will hold different types of data you see so i cannot
manually insert text boxes and so on.
My little work-around so far is shown below.
As you can see I have hard coded an iterator to values of 3
(only 2 news values in my db table atm) so firstly I would like to
find out how to make a 'count' of the news nodes which I get
returned - so that the iterator value is accurate.
Secondly when I execute this code everything is fine except
because i am using dynamic content - newsMessageUI.text does not
conform to the width of my canvas (which is resizable etc). And
also becuase there are 2 values coming from database - both values
are laid ontop of each other - so 2 dates ontop of each other 2
author titles and 2 messages etc.
All I need is a way to implement a TextField for my code (to
allow word wrap etc) and a way to seperate the two retrieved pieces
of info - was thinking another Vbox created to stack these one
after the other?
I'm really new to flex as you can tell by my code lol so any
help tips or suggestions will be very helpful!
//[Bindable] public var a:XMLList; by the way, dont use this
was just exploring the possibility. Also var move was used to move
the .y of the vbox, the +i *100 the 2nd interation down 100px.
However this is no good as the news info could be on any number of
line and at any length.
