Subject Re: [FlexJS][XML]appending XMLLists
Date Fri, 06 May 2016 08:29:43 GMT
I got rid of just about everything and it still was not working.

I finally replaced list1 += list4 with xml2.a += list4 and that works.

So the following does not work:
list1 = xml2.a;
list1 += list4;
 
But the following does:
xml2.a += list4

I’m guessing that the reason the second case works is because it’s actually reassigning
all <a> elements of the original xml with the new XMLList.

So the following does what I want:

for(i=0;i<list4.length();i++){
	list1[list1.length()] = list4[i];
}

which is different than:

list1 += list4;

But:

If I do this:

list4 = xml2.z; // z does not exist
list4[0] = <a id="1"/>;
list4[1] = <a id="2"/>;
list4[2] = <a id="3"/>;

instead of this:
list4 = new XMLList();
list4[0] = <a id="1"/>;
list4[1] = <a id="2"/>;
list4[2] = <a id="3"/>;

I get the elements appended to the XML.
Bizarre, but this does jive with your reading of the spec.
