  • A countdown timer for your projects...

    Here's a small 1 X 1 flash countdown timer. You can easily set it to time things. You can run it invisibly or use it to display time remaining. Simply set the limit in the time.conf file to how ever many minutes you want in your countdown. Use decimals if you like too, i.e. 1.5 for one and a half minutes.

    There's a demo AMS file included, check it out. Very simple to understand. The flash .swf reads from time.conf so make sure they always stay in the same folder (In this case the Distribution folder)

    The .swf returns the time remaining from the limit set in time.conf as an FScommand, you can use this to display, trigger actions, etc. To test if it's done simply add an IF statement to the flash timers OnFSCommand event which tests the Last FSCommand to see if it's "0:00" and if it is then trigger your "done" event.

    If you have any questions just post and I'll be happy to help.
