    Parsing XML Namespace in as2

    GumpsterF

      HI, I am attempting to parse some weather information from the Yahoo weather RSS feed.

       

      This is a typical XML node;

      <description>Yahoo! Weather for Palm Springs, CA</description>

       

      I used the typical XML parsing code in as2;

      var text1 = this.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[1].firstChild.nodeValue;

      txt1.text = text1;

       

      I was doing pretty good until I reached a node that was formatted thus;

      <yweather:forecast day="Mon" date="28 Sep 2009" low="74" high="103" text="Sunny" code="32" />

      This text traced a value of undefined.

       

      I have tried to research this and so far all I have been able to find out, is that this is a XML namespace and is very easily handled in as3. Unfortunately I have to use as2.

       

      How do I parse out this information into a dyamic text fields?

      Or failing that, where in the literature does adobe expalin how this is done?
