ActionScript 2.0 :: Date Countdown Timer / Specify Time Zone

May 16, 2007

I've been using your tutorial for a date countdown timer with great sucess, although now I realise because it took the date from the computer that is viewing it and because the event is counting to an event in India, it would be wrong because up until now, ive just put the date and time so obivously it would be wrong because it would be that time/date of that timezone. Is there anyway I can alter the actionscript for a specific timezone?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Create A Countdown Timer To Exact Time (not Just Date)?

Nov 6, 2008

coding, create a *******' timer to the exact time. I found billionsof tutorials to countdown to a day, but NOBODY can provide a sampleto countdown to a date and time (i.e. Dec. 25 @ 8PM).I need this to countdown to a TV show's premier. And I'm adesigner not a coder... so there has to be a FLA file out therethat I could snag and just update the graphics and plug in a timeand date, and then it counts down once I make a SWF?

ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 Countdown To Date + Number Countdown?

Nov 30, 2009

I have a countdown to a specific date. Mine is 31st of december 2009. But I want a number related to the countdown. So it starts with lets say 8000.Now I have the number related to the amount of days. 62 is 8000, 61 is 7500, 60 is 7000... etc. When you enter the page it checks the countdown date and relates a starting number, every 3 sec. the number goes decreases. I want to add an action to every countdown. I know there must be a better way of coding this...

The best would be that the number decreases realtime, so everytime you go to the page number changes... Does anybody know a good way of doing this or provide a related tutorial link ? I really tried to find an example, but every countdown tutorial is related to time only....

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

ActionScript 2.0 :: Countdown - Get Date From Server With Asp?

Mar 19, 2007

I have successfully managed to follow and implement the flash date countdown timer tutorial given here: [URL]

However I need to get the time from my server rather than the client so that everyone see's the same time and nobody can view the rest of the movie before the deadline has been reached.

Instructions are given to get the tiome from the server using PHP, however our website runs on so i cannot use this PHP script.

I know I can call the date from my server on an aspx page with:

<% dteDate = Now %>
<%=dteDate %>

Which displays as:

19/03/2007 12:40:29

Is it possible to pull that into the countdown? If so where do I need to start?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Countdown Timer Target Date

Jun 9, 2004

I can't seem to be able to correctly set a time in addition to the date. When I just set a target date, all is well, but when I try to set an actual time within that date, the timer jumps to it's completion when run.

I think maybe I'm just not understanding the format needed:


// Date( year, month-1, date [, hour [, minute [, second [, millisecond]]]])
eventDate = new Date( 2004, 05, 12);

how to enter, say, June 12th 2004 at 8:00 am? This must be pretty obvious, but I'm obviously missing something here (I'm a beginner when it comes to flash).

ActionScript 3.0 :: Create A Countdown Timer To A Specific Date?

Jul 24, 2010

What I'd like to do is create a countdown timer to a specific date, but from all the tutorials I've read, I can't seem to find one that will include milliseconds; only a Day:hour:min:sec format.What I'd like is an Hour:min:sec:milliseconds format (the milliseconds whilst considerably pointless, is an aesthetic choice - I'm hoping the frantically changing numbers will display a sense of urgency).I'm using Flash CS4, and the following Actionscript so far:

Actionscript Code:

var endDate:Date = new Date(2012,9,6);var countdownTimer:Timer = new Timer(1000);countdownTimer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, updateTime);countdownTimer.start();function updateTime(e:TimerEvent):void{  var now:Date = new Date(); var timeLeft:Number = endDate.getTime() - now.getTime();  var seconds:Number = Math.floor(timeLeft / 1000);  var minutes:Number = Math.floor(seconds /

ActionScript 2.0 :: Flash Countdown Ticker Using Server Date

Mar 27, 2008

I am making a countdown ticker that would get the current server date & time and then calculate the remaining time from a target date.

I am using a PHP file to output the current server date & time. Then I use the Flash's loadvars function to get the result and format it as a Date field. However, when I trace for remaining days using targetDate-serverDate, I get NaN as the result.

Below is the code for my flash script as well as the php script.

Flash Code:

onClipEvent (load) {
myVars = new LoadVars();
// call the load method to load my php page
