Place an instance of your clock movieclip on the main timeline and test your movie. You should have a working timecode clock!
Now you have completed your first clock using FLASH 5. You can easily create your own custom variations on this theme using the 30+ methods for the Date object that are included in FLASH 5.
An example of this tutorial in action resides at www.nonpoint.com. I used the date object to create a faux timecode to go along with the video surveillance theme of the nav bar.
I hope this tutorial was helpful, good luck to all of you and happy flashing!
