I am using the Quiz template supplied with Flash MX. I would like to add a timer that starts on the first question and stops on the results page and writes the total time taken on the quiz to the screen. I am also randomizing the questions. Please help.

hi i'm not sure how the quiz template works, (never used it before) - but to create a timer you just need to use the setInterval to count seconds, like so:

function callback() {
      valuer = valuer+1;
      trace(valuer);
      //set textfield to whatever
      if ((valuer>20) || (valuer == 0)) {
            clearInterval(id);
      }
}
valuer = 0;
id = setInterval(callback, 1000);

then, at the last question, set another variable to equal what valuer is...... show that in the textfield, and reset valuer to 0.

and that should do it.
