Generating a graphical representation of the XML tree

 7:48 pm on Apr 19, 2011 (gmt 0)

Hi everybody!

Hope I am in the right forum...
I have my nice XML file and I'd like to generate, in order to give an immediate idea of the parent-child relations, a visual representation of it in a graph-like fashion: with nodes represented by circles and connected by lines and maybe even navigable, so that if I pass on a certain element the related node in the representation will be highlighted (or the other way round).

Is there any software that automatically does that? I found software that generate a folder-like view of it but it's not exactly what I need.

Thanks for your attention!

I did, once upon a time, see a Flash SWF that did this. But it wasn't circles and lines, it was like a tree with branches and twigs.

Hi and thanks for the reply!

So, do you think I should better ask in an actionscript forum?

yeah, you might find the kind of solution you're looking for in Flash.

worst case is you'll have to build one yourself. that won't be a trivial job.

Hi again!

It's hard to believe that none ever did a similar application, but my searches didn't return anything useful. [So should I repost in the Flash forum or will you move/prune this thread there?]

after a long quest, I found an amazing library which works with JSON: [thejit.org...]
