    AS3 function conflicting with another..Please help

    Hello people I have been creating a flash front page using CS5 and AS3, I am new to AS3 so please be patient with me.

    I created a typewriter style effect using this AS3:
    var myString2:String = "                                                                      Forums";
    var myArray2:Array = myString2.split("");
    addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, frameLooper2);
    function frameLooper2(event:Event):void {
    	if (myArray2.length > 0) {
    	} else {
    	  removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, frameLooper2);
    This code works fine at this point...... I then add this section of code to add a countdown timer:

    this.onEnterFrame = function() {
    //Set the variables:
    var today:Date = new Date();
    var currentYear = today.getFullYear();
    var currentTime = today.getTime();
    //Now, here is where you can set the countdown date.
    //The format for dates in flash are: Year, Month (0-11, 0 being January), Day.
    //To countdown to the current year, use 'CurrentYear' or for a specific year, use '2011', '2012' etc.
    var targetDate:Date = new Date(currentYear,11,25);
    var targetTime = targetDate.getTime();
    //Here's all the maths. Don't edit this unless you know what you're doing!
    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;
    time_txt.text = counter;
    This code also works fine by itself but not together, please can someone help locate the conflicting issue.

    I have uploaded the fla to as it is too big to attach.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. First one is as3 second one is as2.

    2. Both are firing on the same event.

    Thanks for the reply, with regard to the event i take is that is the ENTER_FRAME event?. So how would i go about allowing the countdown to run alongside the typewrite text?. thanks in advance

    I've managed to sort it all out now, thanks. I changed the second block of code to be as3 compliant and changed some embedding options, now it runs sweet as nut.... cheers
