Title: Read XML file with logic
Post by: Cindy on April 07, 2015, 08:40:38 AM
I need to be able to read an xml file and apply logic to select the elements.

Ex.
Xml file will contain a date attribute, I want to display all the elements for the current date.

<Event Date="04/01/2015" >
<Description>what it is</Description>
<Time>when it is</Time>
<Description>next event</Description>
<time>next time</time>
</Event>
<Event Date="04/02/2015">
..
</Event>

Thanks for your help!

Build your own component that can do this and utilize the HTML5 component or build a SWF that will accomplish what you are looking for.
