member("display time").text = the time
However, you probably want to update this regularly. You could use a
frame event or a timeout object. Also, the systemDate object will allow
as well as other date formatting options. It depends what exactly you
want to display and with what granularity.
If you’re already using Buddy API, baSystemTime() has some nice formatting options as an alternative to _system.time()
There are a few more formatting options using straight lingo. Instead
of using "the time", you can use "the long time" which will show the
hours, minutes, and seconds. Be careful though, since most of
Director's built in ways of getting the time/date can vary depending on
the user's Operating System and preferences in the control panel. For
instance, some may have 24 hour time and some may have AM/PM. It is
dependent upon the user's OS.
BuddyAPI has a more configurable and controllable method, as Applied CD
pointed out. That would be the best way probably.
