Layout

Now it's time to set up your clock layout. Using the type tool, type your arrangement of placeholder zeros and colons (you can use any character as your delimiter, I used colons in the example). Once you have your layout, select your text field and go to the text options tab. Check the dynamic text option, and set the variable name to code.

NOTE: These placeholder digits will be replaced by your script with the real time/date, but typing them in now really helps when you are trying to find a place for the clock in your layout.

With your variable text field selected hit F8 or go to Insert > Convert to Symbol - Name the symbol clock and select movie clip for its behavior.

Chris Irving couldn't snap his fingers until he was 22 years old. He develops on Macs primarily... unless held at gunpoint or using Swish. Now 24, Chris snaps often.

Featured Flash FLA
» Author: doc_chin7
» Description:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
