Hi, 

I found this js code and now I need to use it in an Adobe Animate. If it is possible? If so, I would like to put the counter in an animated dynamic text box. 

<script>
// Set the date we're counting down to
var countDownDate = new Date("February 28, 24 21:35:00").getTime();

// Update the count down every 1 second
var x = setInterval(function() {

// Get today's date and time
var now = new Date().getTime();

// Find the distance between now and the count down date
var distance = countDownDate - now;

// Time calculations for days, hours, minutes and seconds
var days = Math.floor(distance / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24));
var hours = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24)) / (1000 * 60 * 60));
var minutes = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60 * 60)) / (1000 * 60));
var seconds = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60)) / 1000);

// Display the result in the element with id="demo"
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = hours + " godzin, "
+ minutes + " minut, " + seconds + " sekund ";

// If the count down is finished, write some text
if (distance < 0) {
clearInterval(x);
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = "End";
}
}, 1000);
</script>

Hi.

 

You just need to use a dynamic text field instance on stage instead of a DOM element to display the calculated time. Like this:

var root = this;

// Set the date we're counting down to
var countDownDate = new Date("February 28, 24 21:35:00").getTime();

// Update the count down every 1 second
var x = setInterval(function()
{
	// Get today's date and time
	var now = new Date().getTime();
	
	// Find the distance between now and the count down date
	var distance = countDownDate - now;
	
	// T

	var seconds = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60)) / 1000);
	
	// Display the result in the element with id="demo"
	root.yourTF.text = hours + " godzin, " // CHANGE HERE
	+ minutes + " minut, " + seconds + " sekund ";
	
	// If the count down is finished, write some text
	if (distance < 0)
