How to populate labels with remote xml

hi, every example i saw on blackberry dev, use a listview, is there a way to do it but with labels?

heres the example:


import bb.cascades 1.0
import bb.data 1.0
Page {
    content: ListView {
        id: myListView
        // Associate the list view with the data model that's defined in the
        // attachedObjects list
        dataModel: dataModel
        listItemComponents: [
            ListItemComponent {
                type: "item"
                // Use a standard list item to display the data in the data
                // model
                StandardListItem {
                    reserveImageSpace: false
                    title: ListItemData.title
                    description: ListItemData.pubDate
    attachedObjects: [
        GroupDataModel {
            id: dataModel
            // Sort the data in the data model by the "pubDate" field, in
            // descending order, without any automatic grouping
            sortingKeys: ["pubDate"]
            sortedAscending: false
            grouping: ItemGrouping.None
        DataSource {
            id: dataSource
            // Load the XML data from a remote data source, specifying that the
            // "item" data items should be loaded
            source: "http://news.google.com/news?topic=h&output=rss"
            query: "/rss/channel/item"
            type: DataSourceType.Xml
            onDataLoaded: {
                // After the data is loaded, clear any existing items in the data
                // model and populate it with the new data
    onCreationCompleted: {
        // When the top-level Page is created, direct the data source to start
        // loading data

Re: How to populate labels with remote xml

not that simple, as this code is specifically for the list view.

you can use xmldataaccess or qt xml
