I would like to create a website 'banner' application in flash that uses action script to show or hide different movie clips based on a start and end date.
Originally I would have to manually upload new banners to a website one at a time. But if I had one file that could contain multiple banners I could have them turn on and off based on what day it was. Is there a way to do this with action script?
I would also like to create some small buttons to toggle through the banners that are 'published'.
Let me know if any of this seems possible and we will go from there.
if you want to use the date from the user's os, you can do that using actionscript alone. but that's not going to be accurate in some number of users.
if you can use server-side script, you can use the date/time from the server. that's more accurate but needs more than actionscript.
I would be fine with using the time clock on users computers...
I guess were going to develop an application for this because I later realised that I would have to update and re-publish the new banners anyway becuase they wouldnt be dynamic.
if you use the os system clock, the banners could change dynamically based on the time. that would be easy to do.
