I am not sure if this is even possible. Basically I want to load a local html file on a client PC and have it make a request to a remote server. The data served up by the server is XML.
When I say I am loading a file, I mean the URL in chrome appears as "file:///E:/..."
This is the closest I have gotten to being able to load the XML. I inspected the network tab on the client end and its successfully loading, I just cant seem to get the XML into an element I can inspect:
var script = document.createElement('script'); script.setAttribute('src', 'http://xxx.xx.xx.xxx:xxxx/myxmldata'); script.setAttribute('type', 'text/xml'); script.setAttribute('id', 'myxml'); document.getElementsByTagName('head').appendChild(script); var content = document.getElementById("myxml").responseText;// anything I can do here? console.log(content);
An AJAX solution would work too. I didn't have any luck with JSONP (this isn't JSON, though).
Well, if you are having a problem with the cross domain policy, you might need to build some sort of proxy that will do the request for you. (Its pretty simple to make)
You have a nice example here: http://dojotoolkit.org/reference-guide/dojo/xhrGet.html
Hope it helps.
