you must be so frustrated writing an example and having all sorts of questions that indicate to you that your commenters are not on the same page as you or have not understood that loading and displaying are quite seperate things altogether. thanks for the snippet, i somehow forgot that rss is xml, going to try to use it to pull wordpress posts into flash...

I'm trying it with AS 2 Flash player 10 settings. All I get is the text "eie" in the field, but there is no such text in the rss feed, or in the script.. Can this work?

Thanks for the great tutorial... I still can't quite make it work. In the dynamic text field (I'm using as2) it says, "undefined." The feed is showing up in the output box... not sure what to do. What does it mean to work through the feed by changing the [0]'s?

If you're working in AS2 the only thing that needs to be done to integrate this to the stage is to first create a dynamic text box named "number1_txt" and add the following: sports.onLoad = function(success) { trace(sports); = this.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[0].childNodes[0].firstChild.nodeValue; number1_txt.text =; }; You work your way through your rss feed/xml by changing the [0]'s in that code. but that code should give you something to start with.

I'm working in actionscript 2.0 and want to be able to use my rss blog feed for the news segment. I'm having the same problem, the rss feed only shows up in the output pane.

It works fine ! If its not showing in the text box i would suggest clicking "embed..." under the properties of the txt box and selecting they data you want to display ! If that doesnt work then i dont know.

I managed to get this to work no problem. Now my question is.. is it possible to have the photos from the blog that is getting fed into flash show up and also, is there a way to make this look a little more organized? as of now im getting the text from the blog, but there is no space between each blog. Thanks
