    go to frame if date is between...

    Hi guys,

    I'd like to make it so a mc will go to one of it frames if the date is between say 1st January and 2nd February (or even using the day of the year if that's easier).. Is this possible? I was trying to work it out but am finding it difficult..

    I was thinking something like...

    janstart = 1
    janend = 31

    currentday = ?? no idea how to work out the day

    onEnterFrame = function(){
    if(currentday >= janstart and currentday <= janend ){
    mc1.goto.frame2;
    } else {

    }
    }

    Is that even close??

    Cheers
    Steve

    If you are using ActionScript 3, you can use the Date class to construct a date or get the current date.

    Hi,

    With AS2, this will guide you along
    PHP Code:
    janstart 1;
    janend 31;

    today = new Date();
    currentdate today.getDate();
    currentmonth today.getMonth() + 1;

    if (
    currentdate >= janstart && currentdate <= janend)
    {
        
    trace("Yes, you are within the set dates. Current date is " currentdate);
        
    trace(currentmonth);
    }
    else
    {
        
    trace("No, you are out of the set dates. Current date is " currentdate);
        
    trace(currentmonth);
