yeah I would of done what fifty said
ease = String(xmlData.easingTransition.text());
Whats all this eval(..) stuff…?
Indeed, why the eval()? I was going to suggest the same as fifty if he hadnt
eval is an ancient technique embedded in flash to ‘evaluate’ a certain property. Let’s say you have the name of a movieClip in a string and you have problems passing it, you could try eval(string) and hope it evaluates the string as a movieClip.
Best practise is NOT to use it, people say..
I was using eval() method to write a flash debugger, it wasn’t working, so I figured out some way to make it work. It worked, I deleted the .fla and now I can’t remember how I managed to do that.
