Hi
I cant get Flash to regonize this string "2007-01-16 19:45:00.0 GMT" as a date.

1. Tried this and got in the trace "Invalid time"
datestring = "2007-01-16 19:45:00.0 GMT";
var newdate:Date = new Date();
newdate.setTime(datestring );
trace(newdate);

2. Then I tried this and got again "Invalid time"
datestring = "2007-01-16 19:45:00.0 GMT";
var newdate:Date = new Date(datestring);
trace(newdate);

That's not a valid format that Flash can understand...  
You basically have to split that string and create something like this...

var newdate:Date = new Date(2007, 0, 16, 19, 45, 0, 0);
trace(newdate);
