    Coundtown help

    ekora

      Trying to wrap my head around the math for a countdown timer.  I have to separate the days, hours, minutes, and seconds... so really I'll have 4 countdowns on the same page.  Here is what I have so far, the date I'm counting down to is March 12, 2011, 12PM.  The daysLeft works, but I don't know what to do for the others.

       

      //Calendar
      toDay = new Date();
      fcdDate = new Date(2011, 3, 12, 12);
      cdDate = fcdDate-toDay;
      daysLeft = Math.floor(cdDate/86400000);
      hoursLeft = Math.floor(cdDate/?);
      minsLeft = Math.floor(cdDate/?);
      secsLeft = Math.floor(cdDate/?);

      *** daysLeft, hoursLeft, etc refers to a value I’m linking with dynamic text representing each of those respectively. I’m not sure what the 86400000 is.  Also, the fcdDate has to be set with a month behind for some reason (year, month-1, date, hour). 

       

      Thanks in advance

          Can you tell I'm dyslexic?  I meant "CounTDown"

            If your countdown date is in March, then your daysLeft cannot be correct.  Months are numbered 0 thru 11.  Here's is a fiunctional bit of countdown code.  All you need is the test_txt textfield to have it work.

             

            this.onEnterFrame = function() {
               
                var today:Date = new Date();
                var currentTime = today.getTime();
               
                var targetDate:Date = new Date(2011, 2, 12, 12);
                var targetTime = targetDate.getTime();
               
                var timeLeft = targetTime - currentTime;
               
               
                var sec = Math.floor(timeLeft/1000);
                var min = Math.floor(sec/60);
                var hrs = Math.floor(min/60);
                var days = Math.floor(hrs/24);


                sec = String(sec % 60);
                if (sec.length < 2) {
                    sec = "0" + sec;
                }
                min = String(min % 60);
                if (min.length < 2) {
                    min = "0" + min;
                }
                hrs = String(hrs % 24);
                if (hrs.length < 2) {
                    hrs = "0" + hrs;
                }
                days = String(days);
               
                var counter:String = days + ":" + hrs + ":" + min + ":" + sec;
                test_txt.text = counter;
            }
