I've got a php backend which delivers a time (e.g. '07:00:00').
This time is recognized as a string but I need it as a Date.
So what I need is:
Convert a string '07:00:00' to a Flex Date object.
Is there a way to do this (without using regular expressions)?
Don't forget that newly created Date object presents current date.
Use the Date class http://www.adobe.com/livedocs/flash/9.0/ActionScriptLangRefV3/
Particularly the parse() property , but you should also be able to use a PHP timestamp and get the Date class to return a String
//value returned from PHP var timestamp:Number = 1234670090; var date:Date = new Date(timestamp); var date2:Date = new Date(); var time:String = date2.parse('07:00:00'); // trace( date ) or trace( time ) should give you a String //with the format Sat Nov 30 15:20:00 GMT-0800 1974
You can use the date variable's properties to return the year , month , day , hours, minutes etc...
