    Using Time in Flex

      I am looking to find some examples to create a clock that counts down from 3 minutes to zero and when the clock hits zero it will refresh the application. I would also like this clock to be clickable so that it to would refresh the app.

      I have looked all over the net but have not seen any time/date examples anywhere.

      any help would be great

          Maybe you can create a component that uses the Flex Timer. See these FB2 help topics:
          Controlling time intervals
          Example: Alarm Clock

            I've also found this but I am getting some weird errors

            public class ShortTimer extends Sprite{

            public function ShortTimer()
            // creates a new five-second Timer
            var minuteTimer:Timer = new Timer(1000, 300);

            // designates listeners for the interval and completion events
            minuteTimer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, onTick);
            minuteTimer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER_COMPLETE, onTimerComplete);

            // starts the timer ticking

            public function onTick(evt:TimerEvent):void
            // displays the tick count so far
            // The target of this event is the Timer instance itself.
            trace("tick " + evt.target.currentCount);

            public function onTimerComplete(evt:TimerEvent):void

            It keeps returning the error
