View Full Version : Having a date automatically update?

I have a flash file that lists upcoming dates for seminars. As old ones pass and new ones come up, would there be a way of having an XML file or something that would automatically update based on the date? It would look like this:

UPCOMING DATE: November 4

And so after November 4 passes, it would automatically change it to reflect the next one, let's say December 8.

Is this possible? If not, how can I at least drive the text by an xml file? Right now I am manually updating the flash file itself, but it would be a lot quicker and easier to just update an xml file. I'm clueless.

Thanks!

But you could also do the same with a simple .txt and LoadVars...
