    server time insted of client time

    hello flashers.

    help needed.

    working on a project where on the top left corner of the screen i display
    the current date and a clock.
    they are the user machine's date and time.

    i want to display the server time rather then the user's machine time.

    how can i acomplish this task?

    thanks
    piny.

    Are you able to use PHP or any other scripting source?

    If so then use that script to call the time and date into a dynamic text box.

    i need the action script

    thanks for the replys.
    but i need the action script rather then the server script.

    i pass the date variable from the server to the mc but i dont know
    how to implement the GetTimer() function
    to work according to that variable.

    thanks again,
    piny

    i will try to explain

    i pass a variable from the server to to mc
    the variable includes the date and the current time of
    the server.

    i put the date variable in the date textbox
    but i dont know how to put the time into the
    clock script.

    the clock script grubs the client machine time
    but i want it to start functioning according to the
    time variable that i passed from the server.

    thanks
