Hello, I am working with Flash 8 Professional, and I want to create a countdown timer (which is visible on screen) that counts down from 60 minutes to 0 minutes, and then at the end initiates an action. I searched on Google and only found timers that countdown from one date to another, and I wasn't sure how to convert this to just hours and minutes and milliseconds. How would I do this? Thanks in advance.

this should get you started!

createTextField("countdown_txt", getNextHighestDepth(), 0, 0, 20, 20);
countdown_txt.selectable = false;
var ms:Number = getTimer();
var count:Number = 60;
countdown_txt.text = count.toString();

onEnterFrame = function()
{
if( getTimer() - 1000 > ms )
{
ms = getTimer();
count = (count<=0) ? 0: count-1;
countdown_txt.text = count.toString();
}
}



it just counts down 1 minute, but you should be able to figure out enough from it to do what you want.
