Topic: creating XML file via ASP

Hi, firstly may i say i think tilt viewer is a fantastic application.

For my application i want to create multiple xml files from a database of pictures.
This will allow the customer to select pictures in differnet group or even randomly.
Using Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM") it was all going fine until i realised that the syntax of one of the xml tags is wrong, namely the tag <photo imageurl=somename.jpg linkurl=some linkhere>

The Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM") will not allow incorrectly formed tags  so spaces in the name , = sign , quotes are all out.

Am i right in saying the tags should be <photo><imageurl> <linkurl> separately???
so the structure would be
<tiltviewergallery>
    <photos>
        <photo>
                    <imageurl>
                    <linkurl>
                    <title>
                    <description>   & then all the closing tags

Would this be a fix that coule be made "in the next version"???
Incidentally when would this be?

Thank you

This is not wrong, it's just using XML attributes instead of separate tags, which is common practice. I would be surprised if ASP doesn't support XML attributes.

Hi Felix, thanks from prompt reply.
Apologies i have now read more & have realised it an attribute and these i can create. I am  having some trouble creating the structure from the Microsoft.XMLDOM but I'm sure I'll work out a solution.

I have tried to run the tiltviewer as a web page displaying on the desktop, but sadly the flash didnt appear. Other html files with swf's in will work,, maybe its just a directory structure problem & the files aren't being found.
any ideas??

Thanks again for a great product  everone i show it to goes WOW

Due to Flash Player security restrictions XML galleries must be uploaded to a web server to work.
