i need help on drag and drop game...

i have done the drag and drop function but along with this, timer has to be set after user finishes the drag & match, it should give finish alert and time taken for this game is to be sent to some external file or some database...

can it be done?
i have attached the .fla file also..

Warm Regards

without looking at your file I will explain the basics of getting a timer.

// first thing you do is get the start time.
startTime = getTimer();

// when you want to stop the clock you use getTimer again
endTime = getTimer();

// you can then find out the time passed by simple subtration
secondsPassed = (startTime-endTime)/1000;

Try to work that into your file.

u can activate the startTime with the start button of the game
and activate the end when the game ends
then substract, convert the millisecods to the time u want

and please don't crosspost threads
I will remove the other one
