Hi,

I'm working on a flash movie whose background image should change according to the time of day:

7am - 5pm - day time
5pm - 8pm - cloudy
8pm - 7am - evening

This is the actionscript function I have so far:

function getGTM(){
        // Create the date object and obtain the universal hour
        var tDate:Date = new Date();
        tH = tDate.getUTCHours();
       
        // Compare the hour and determine the image to display
        if((tH >= 7) && (tH <= 17)){
                cielo.gotoAndStop("day");
                luces.gotoAndStop(1);
                pMostrar = "Day";
        }else if((tH >= 17) && (tH <= 20)){
                cielo.gotoAndStop("afternoon");
                luces.gotoAndStop(1);
                pMostrar = "Afternoon";
        }else{
                cielo.gotoAndStop("evening");
                luces.gotoAndStop(2);
                pMostrar = "Evening";
        }
}
getGTM();


It's not working as planned. I'd greatly appreciate any insight.

Thanks,

Al

Well first, I would fix the redundancy when comparing the hour to 17. More than one case is true when it's 5 o'clock. Unless that's what you want. :-)

Other than that, it looks sound. What does it not do that you'd like to have it do?
