ActionScript 2.0 :: Eastern Date Time?

May 2, 2008

I'm sorry to ask such a stupid question but the documentation is not clear to me. And I really don't want to screw it up. I am creating a flash piece that needs to change its content based on the date eastern time. so that the content on monday 00:00:00 will be different than the content sunday 11:59:59. I have everything set up for local time ie:

Code:var currentDate:Date = new Date();

But do to legal issues involved I need to set this up so that even if the user is in Alaska the content will change based on Eastern Standard Time.I'm sure I can use timeZoneOffset, but I'm just not sure how to implement it.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Countdown Timer, Timezone Offset Stuck In Eastern Time?

Dec 22, 2006

I have a countdown timer that will be used for events that happen locally central time, mountain time, etc. However, if someone on eastern or pacific time (or any variation of the 4 timezones) looks at the countdown timer, I want to make sure that it shows the time relative to their timezone.I thought i could read the user's timezone offset (Date.getTimezoneOffset) and subtract from it the hardcoded timezone offset of the event (passed as a variable from XML depending on the event's "primary" timezone).

Am I getting the math here wrong? The "net" timezone offset from the user - the event timezone offsets SHOULD add into the countdown time.However, Date.getTimezoneOffset, regardless of my Mac or PC timezone setting/time, keeps showing an Eastern timezone offset of 5 hours. What's going on?The time is correct when I hardcode an event timezone offset to anything other than Eastern time. I think the problem is that it's not getting a user timezone offset OTHER than -5 hours for Eastern Time.Code for the timer is here (assume that the target event timezone has been passed in):

this.onEnterFrame = function() {
var today:Date = new Date();

ActionScript 2.0 :: How To Print Date And Time

Oct 7, 2010

I have looked around a lot for the answer to this, here and out on the web, I just can't believe it can't be done.I have certificates that the user fills in their name once they successfully pass the on-line course, this works and prints fine. The decided they wanted the current date and time to show up on the certificate for their records. The date and time displays correctly, but when you go to print the certificate you get the default numerals, not the date and time, once the print dialogue box goes away after printing, you can see it change back to correct day and time.

When I use it, it gives me the current hour and everything for the Eastern Time Zone (Newyork), but I live in Georgia, so I am eastern timezone, will someone who lives somewhere else, like california, run the code (below) and tell me if the time flash displays is the current time they have on their computer, or if the hours are off... with that said, if it is the same, and flash doesn't give everyone on earth the same time, is there any code I can use to retrieve the current time in 1 time zone no matter where on earth I am when I use the code?
