XML Data Island

We have not tested this scenario but the XML provider supports both a file

and an XML string so if you can get the XML as a string from the data island

it should work.

Great! I couldn't get this to work when I was experimenting with it. Could you

please post the syntax to pass an XML string to the object?

Thanks!

Hm... sounds like i could use that too!

I have tried to use JavaScript to create an ActiveXObject of

'SfxXMLData.ServerXMLData' . then i call

var chartData = new ActiveXObject( 'SfxXMLData.ServerXMLData' );

chartData.LoadFromString (mystring);

Chart1.GetExternalData (chartData);

in order to load my xml into the chart.

However, whenever i make this call:

var chartData = new ActiveXObject( 'SfxXMLData.ServerXMLData' );

I get a warning saying that this script has not been marked as safe. This

is fine with me but unfortunately some of our clients are not as willing to

accept that warning. Is there a way to use the XML Data provider on the

client side w/o getting this error? Any help would be greatly apprecitated.

If I could pass the xml from a string, that would do too.. i just dont want

to write anything out to the file system if possible...

Thank you,
