measure a user’s reaction time

I’m looking for something to measure a user’s reaction time. Say I had a yellow dot on the screen and when it changed to green the user would click on a button and display there reaction time to the change in this format 0.000 sec but if the user clicked before the dot changed to green the dot turns red.

create a timer - countdown function which gets called when turns green, gets stopped on press of the thing, convert seconds to milliseconds.

if you need the code, it will be something along these lines

(if you choose to use the approach i described earlier)

on the root.
function callback() {
      valuer = valuer+1;
}
stop_btn.onRelease = function() {
      clearInterval(id);
      trace(valuer add " end");
      //convert
      toSec = valuer/1000;
      trace(toSec);
};

then, when it changes colour, //where it must start counting.
//note i'm assuming inside a movieclip thus the _root pathing.
//i'm using 1 as 1 millisecond, and there's 1000 milliseconds in 1 second (apparently).

_root.id = setInterval(_root.callback, 1);

and that's it.
the toSec part would give you seconds.milliseconds.
