Hello, I'm quite new to Flex and I have this problem.
I'd like to call an HTTPService that returns XML data in e4x
format and assign the result to an AS3 class (LoginVO).
But I get a message stating that I cannot assign the xml to
the class at the following lines:
LoginVO( event.result ) and LoginVO( event )
Is it possible to do this? Should the xml written in some
particular way? What else?
Thanks in advance.
Typically you have to have a constructor in your VO that
takes the xml as a parameter. Then you assign each property in your
constructor. Something like this . . .
var myLoginVO = new LoginVO( event.result );
In your constructor you would have something like this. . .
public function Login( loginXMLList : XMLList ) : void
this.userName = loginXMLList.item..userName;
I'm not sure if you are getting xmllist back or xml etc. . .
Also not sure what your LoginVO looks like but you should get
the idea . ..
I am unable to guess why you want the XML data to get
converted to e4x format and then to LoginVO Object.
HTTPService by default would convert XML data to Objects. But
they won't be of LoginVO type or anyother type. They would be palin
You can have a constructor / creator function in LoginVO
which accepts a Object and creates a new LoginVO object using the
properties/values in the object.
public function createLoginVO(obj:Object):LoginVO
var loginVO:LoginVO = new LoginVO();
for (var prop:String in obj)
loginVO[prop] = obj[prop];
Above code assumes that LoginVO has same properties as the
XML data returned. You can add checks or hard coded values in the
