    this is regarding code for a count up timer.....

    csclark0530 Level 1

      I have created a custom count up timer and I have written the code. But I would like for the dynamic text "0" that I created in Flash to be the counter not some random number that pops up when I initiate the counter. What do I need to do for it to recognize the "0" I typed in a text field as where it should started counting? Does this make sense?

      Here is the code:

       

      var startT:Number = 1;

      var endT:Number =8000000;

       

      var tf:TextField = this.createTextField('counter', this.getNextHighestDepth(), 10, 10, 300, 22);

       

      onEnterFrame = function ()

      {

          if (startT >=endT)

          {

              delete onEnterFrame;

              tf.text = String(endT);

          }

          else

          {

              tf.text = String(startT);

              startT += 1;

          }

      }
