Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-35069) .. notation failing in XML
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2016 15:35:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-35069?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15235306#comment-15235306

Harbs commented on FLEX-35069:

The spec clearly states that namespaces do not need prefixes. In fact, if there's a default
namespace, it's probably not prefixed. It stands to reason that there needs to be a way to
specify a non-prefixed namespace in E4X statements. I probably found this syntax by trial
and error.

I'm fine with considering this a low-priority bug until someone complains. I've never had
a need for this in real-life situations.

> The compiler gives the following message:
> [mxmlc] Error: '..' is not allowed here
> This should be valid E4X. I'm not sure what it is about this expression which is failing.
The following does seem to be accepted:
> var script:XML = xml..script[0].children()[0];
