Short ActionScript snippet to count down time

Submitted by Kingsley 👑 on Thu, 08/12/2010 - 13:04

Not much to see here...
A friend asked for a snippet of code to count down mins:secs

var interval:Number
var seconds = 90; // one min and 30 secs

function countDown() {
seconds--
mins = Math.floor( seconds / 60 ) //calc mins left
//calc secs left and stick a 0 in if less then 10 (prettier)
secs = seconds % 60 if (seconds == 0) {//stop timer if done
clearInterval(interval)
}
trace( mins + ":" + secs ); //do something with output
}
//call our function every second
interval = setInterval(countDown,1000)

I'm really excited about attending and presenting at eLearning DevCon 2010 next week!

I will be presenting 2 BYOL sessions:

  • Port Flash Interactions to Articulate Engage; become rich & famous
  • Incorporating custom-Built Flash into Articulate via the API

I will also be participating in a few round table discussions... one on Flash vs HTML5 and another on Scaling eLearning for large corporations.

Sometimes I get ideas but dont really have a good use for them...
I would love to hear your suggestions on what this might be useful for (or if it is).
