    Hi there all,

    I looking at making a screensaver that changes over time. i.e. I want actionscripit to detect the time from the system clock and depending on the time alter the state of the movie playing...for example darkens the sky in the screen saver....tells you it is saturday and you shouldn't be at work..etc...

    Want I want to know is this possibile....

    any thoughts!..any known examples to look at....

    cheers...out there..enjoy your day!

    Hi Stuart,
    It is relatively very complicated to do this using Flash 4, as there is no function to read system date in flash 4. You can only do this with FS Command and/or JavaScript.
    My suggestion is to look into Flash 5 where you have a built in Date object.
    Hope it helps.
