Hi experts,

Is there any flash actionscript to know whether the users local pc time is morning or night. We will use the flash offline

Flash's Date() object always return you the time for the local PC that's running the SWF...
So, assuming that you are defining 6PM ~ 6AM to be night, you can do something along this line to determine it...

function getNight()
{
      var _now:Date = new Date();
      var _hr:Number = _now.getHours();
      
      if ((_hr < 6) || (_hr > 18))
      {
            trace("It is night here...");
      }
      else
      {
            trace("It is not night here...");
      }
}

getNight();

I don't understand the offline bit though...
