Reading external XML documents

Flash Player 9 and later, Adobe AIR 1.0 and later

You can use the URLLoader class to load XML data from a URL. To use the following code in your applications, replace the XML_URL value in the example with a valid URL:

var myXML:XML = new XML(); 
var XML_URL:String = ""; 
var myXMLURL:URLRequest = new URLRequest(XML_URL); 
var myLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader(myXMLURL); 
myLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, xmlLoaded); 
function xmlLoaded(event:Event):void 
    myXML = XML(; 
    trace("Data loaded."); 

You can also use the XMLSocket class to set up an asynchronous XML socket connection with a server. For more information, see the ActionScript 3.0 Reference for the Adobe Flash Platform .
