DM 171: Week Nine - April 12

Spry Dynamically

For this week…

Learn to create an XML file and use Spry to display it dynamically on the page!

For the next week…

Your Classic Headlamps client is really pleased with your progress. They would like to see you add to the site; an inventory listing that is dynamically driven. Your client's office database program can produce an XML file to your specifications if that will help...

Create an XML file with at least seven Classic Headlamp products, construct a XHTML page and use Spry to display your data dynamically on this page. Once your the page is functional, use your own styling for a unique look and feel. For columns, show product name, thumbnail image, description, quantity on hand, and price. Use other colunms as you think needed. Fake your own data for names, prices, quantities, etc. but use the thumbnail images your client has already given you.

Hint! For this XML exercise, the Spry repeating table will use your individual XML tags as colunms but is unable to do so with XML attributes so format your XML file accordingly.
