Hello, I apologize if this question has already been posted...  I'm trying to make a basic time/date in Animate.  If I use this.tf.text = new Date();  where tf is a dynamic text field, the .fla displays what I want.  My question is, is it possible to put this in a function and then use setInterval to essentially get a real time display?  If so, can someone help with the code?  I'm a mechanic by trade and hitting it with a hammer isn't working....

any loop will work.

 

setInterval(updateF.bind(this),500);

 

function updateF(){
this.tf.text=new Date();  // you'll probably want to format this

}
