ActionScript 3.0 :: Find Out Client Machine TimeZone In Specific Format Using Flex Date?

Sep 12, 2011

I have a requierement in my project that i need to store 'US/Eastern EST' and day light saving 'US/Eastern EDT'  in data base if client machine is in US/Eastern time zone. Because this gives clear identification instead of justing the chars like 'EST'. There is CDT in US region as well as Chaina too so can't relay just on three chars like 'EST'/'EDT'.

Flex :: Assign Date To DateField In Specific Format?

Jan 19, 2012

I want to assign date to Date field that is in DD-MM-YYYY format. That is I receive String Closure_Date which contains date in DD-MM-YYYY format.

I want to assign that date to Date field like:
dtCloseDate.selectedDate=new Date(Closure_Date);
In this case If Closure_Date contains 16/11/2011 it takes 16 as month so it takes 12 and adds remaining 4 months and it returns 04/11/2012.

My question is how to assign date(DD-MM-YYYY) to DateField?
If I use Dateformatter(DD-MM-YYYY) like
dtCloseDate.selectedDate=new Date(Dateformatter.format(Closure_Date));
It Returns NaN

Java :: Intercepting Date Objects Coming From BlazeDS And Adjusting For Timezone Differences?

Oct 27, 2010

I am working on an application that is near the end of its development cycle and has mostly passed user testing. We recently realized that having flex convert dates to the client's local timezone is not desired, as all of our dates are in EST and contain no time data. Since BlazeDS sends dates in UTC, this results in the dates being converted to the day before in timezones west of EST.

The best solution is to go in and refactor all dates to adjust for the timezone offset, but that is just not doable at this stage. Since all dates in our application don't care about time, I would really like to be able to intercept all Date objects that come across BlazeDS and adjust for the timezone offset.

Actionscript 3 :: Countdown Timer To Specific Timezone In Flash?

Nov 12, 2010

Is it possible to create a countdown timer (dd:hh:mm:ss) to 12am central time on the front end only?

So users in all timezones would get a clock that is counting down using central time rather than their current computer time?

I'm trying to do this without using backend scripts, but I'm not sure if its possible.

Flex :: To Retreive Date In The Same Format As Stored?

Dec 17, 2009

I am facing an issue in my Flex application.I am creating some array collections and storing date objects in it.In the later part of the application I will create'advanceddatagridcolumns' with these array collections as the data sources.Initially while creating the Array Col , I do have the 'formats' given by user, for each array collection eg. '1995/06/25' but in the later part I have no access to these formats. I want to display this dates in the data grid in same way as the user has specified. Right now, it displays it in the default format 'Sun Jun 25 00:00:00 GMT+0530 1995' instead of '1995/06/25'.

I have a common 'labelFunction' for these advancedatagridcolumns, and thus I can not use the DateFormatter as I 'formatstring' would be different for different columns. So is there some way to display/retrieve the date in the same format as stored and not in the default way. Or while creating the date object can't I specify that I would always like it to be returned in some desired format.

Flex :: Format A Date String When It Could Be Two Different Formats?

Jun 3, 2011

I have a date field in flex and have the format set to YYYY-MM-DD. As long as the user clicks the calendar pop-up it set's it that way. However, I need to allow the field to be human enter-able so they can type in a date.The problem is, most users want to type the format MM/DD/YYYY. I have a tool tip that shows the format, but how can I check the format and change it to the YYYY-MM-DD format, or do something else appropriate (alert?)?

Display Value In Date Field Irrespective Of Date Format?

Sep 21, 2011

I have an mx:DateField in my Flex UI that has a formatString="" attached to it. However, the initial value for that field may not be in the format specified/defined for the DateField (due to legacy reasons). So, currently, if I just set that value (text) on the DateField, the field is shown empty. I think because it fails to accept the value in a format different than what's configured.

Flex :: Get The Name Of A Day Of The Week For A Specific Date Using ActionScript?

Feb 2, 2011

I'm sure there's a simple method or function out there to do this (at least I'm hoping there is). I want to return the name of a day of the week for a specific date using ActionScript.

For example, if I provide "2/2/2011" as a parameter, it should return "Wednesday". What's the best way to make this happen?

While both of them will work, I'm curious to know if anyone can think of a reason why one would be preferred over the other.
