I need to convert this xml node into standard 24 hr time.  For example: DepartureDate="2009-06-30 15:00" needs to be displayed as 3:00P or something similar.  How do I go about accomplishing this?

Thanks for all the support, this is drivin me nuts!

XML:
<fh:FlightHistory FlightHistoryId="163871394" DepartureDate="2009-06-30 15:00" ArrivalDate="2009-06-30 16:35" PublishedDepartureDate="2009-06-30 15:00"
 
AS3 xml path into parsed dynamic textfields:
Flights.flight_mc.schedTime_txt.text = contentInput.channel.item.someNamespace::FlightHistory[0].@DepartureDate;

You basically have to do a simple math like this...

CyanBlue
var timeStr:String = "2009-06-30 15:00";
var dt:String = timeStr.split(" ")[0];
var hr:String = timeStr.split(" ")[1].split(":")[0];
var mn:String = timeStr.split(" ")[1].split(":")[1];
var ampm:String = "AM";
 
if (parseInt(hr) > 12)
{
	ampm = "PM";
	hr = (parseInt(hr) - 12).toString();
}
 
var newTimeStr:String = dt + " " + hr + ":" + mn + " " + ampm;
trace("newTimeStr = " + newTimeStr);     // newTimeStr = 2009-06-30 3:00 PM
