    Flash clock question

    BrettArchibald Level 1
      Can anyone help me with a query I have about how to get accurate clock time in Flash, rather than relying on the user's own local clock settings? Searching seems to indicate that "getUTCHours" and "getUTCMinutes" etc. will display GMT regardless, but it doesn't appear to be working for me. If I adjust my local clock settings, then the Flash clock adjusts accordingly...

      Basically I've built this Flash clock. I test it out with my System clock accurate and the Flash clock displays the correct time. I put forward my System clock by 15 minutes and the Flash clock goes forward 15 minutes too when I next test it. I want to build a Flash clock that displays the correct time, regardless of whether the user has got the correct time on their machine or not...

      Does this "getUTC" method still rely on the user's System clock, but then simply adjusts it according to the timezone they have set up?
