that's true but one must understand one has already given one answer therefore one must know one must do. I gave him something to read I did not asked him to download anything
If you notice, He responded to my answer positively in an understanding way. I didn't do the work for him. I didn't give him anything, but point out a simple location that actually has to be further researched if you don't know anything about configuring http headers. So He is still doing the work himself, but is now guided in the right direction.
You still seem to misunderstand his post. He wasn't referring to you giving him something to download.
He is saying he doesn't want to download the file in his original question. He wants to know how to link to it.
Do you, or do you not know how to get C2 to read a file from an external website without downloading?
That is the whole question. Yes, we all including op know how to add an xml from our harddrive into the "files" folder and get Ajax to read from it. The original tutorial that everybody always links to doesn't address op's problem directly.
What the question is: How can I get Ajax to call up Http://www.somewebsite.com/folder/iwantthis.xml and read from it.
Did I break it down enough?
