How to convert UTC time into date time format in flex. I am using sdk 3.5. for example I have current date time in UTC format as 1309522586000 (milliseconds) and I want to convert it to friday jul 1 2011. How can I do this??
I have been googling for hours and have not yet found a solution to this problem.currently, I retrive the data from the twitter xml fileeverything works fine, my date format shows this: Fri Aug 12 03:25:40 +0000 2011But I want it to show this: 17 days agohere's my flash as3 code:
var myXMLLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader(); //myXMLLoader.load(new URLRequest("http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline.xml?screen_name=arunshourie"));
I have a String in the format "20-Aug-2008". I want this to be converted to eithe20/08/2008 or 08/20/2008? How can I do this?I just want to remove all those hyphens from the String and convert it to a date value.The dateFormatter function accepts only date values in the format mm/dd/yyyy. used regex and removed all those hyphens,from the String. Now in an array I have the values, 20,Aug and 2008. How to proceed after that to convert to 20/08/2008?
Edit [Bindable]public var myDate:Date; public function init():void
I have a date and I would like to format the date like that:YYYYMMDD HHMMSSso for today it's20100304 173000But when I'm doing this:ar todayStr:String = today.getFullYear()+today.getMonth()+today.getDay()+today.getHours()+today.getMinutes();the problem is for March getMonth() sent "3" and I would like "03". There is the same problem with the day.
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.
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?)?
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
I have an mx:DateField in my Flex UI that has a formatString="dd.mm.yyyy" 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.
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'.
I need a time chooser for a flex app, and as far as I can tell there is no UI component to manipulate Date objects at a resolution finer than per-day (the DateChooser component).What's a good time chooser for Flex? I strongly prefer a Free as in Libre and/or Free as in Beer component.
Is there a way in flex 3 chart component to display both the date and time using horizontal DateTimeAxis?
Currently the DateTimeAxis element has an attribute dataunits which allows to set the value to any of "milliseconds|seconds|minutes|hours|days|weeks|months|years" but I want to display the label as "2009/09/15 06:00:00" which includes the day and the time too.
I am trying to show BOTH the date and the time in Flex 3.5 Stock HOLC (high, open, low, close) Chart. This data shows up but not in the correct format... Problems:
1. The time are out of whack.. they do not line up with proper time.. (is it because they are not military time)?
2. The dates (days) do not show up on the bottom labels are all, is there a way to make this happen?
3. The times show up with large gaps... in the 24 hour period... Is this always the case when the data is not there for the time? Or, can I disable specific time periods like is possible with "disable days"
then I loop the array to search the data I want to return to another function...my problem is how to format the date value in array to become this format before I can make a comparison with this value....
5/21/2007--> this value got from this current date
so the problem is how to convert the value in array from this format
21-5-2007 to this 5/21/2007 for all the values....the data I load from dtbase actually that's why it store that kind of format....
I could be overlooking something, but Flash / AS3 seems to be missing basic date formatting functionality. How do I get a formatted string from a Date ? There's a few options like .toLocaleDateString() and .toUTCString(), but that a bit limiting, to say the least. So, how do I format a Date object in AS3?
So I've searched for everything I can possibly think of and I can't find an answer to my particular problem. Although I've found many similar problems that people have with the date formatting from DateFields.I'm using the DateField component along with PHP to create a simple reservation form which sends an email with the information.I was able to change the format of the date that the user selects (from the DateField) WITHIN Flash. Ex: ("29 Aug 2009" to "September 29, 2009") -- which is what I want. However the e-mail that gets sent out is formatted as ---- "Sun Aug 30 00:00:00 GMT-0400 2009".Is it possible that I can remove the time portion and reformat the date in the DateField within Flash or using PHP? I have tried both methods but I keep getting the same results within my e-mails.[code]
I'm currently pulling data into Flash 7, Actionscript 2.0 from an RSS XML file. One of the nodes in the XML is the dateTime for each entry. After pulling in the dateTime how can I format how it displays?
dateTime format in XML- Mon, 10 Apr 2006 16:35:00 -0700
I want it to display like this in Flash in a text field- 4/10/2006, Monday, 10:35am
