Default [AS3] Countdown Clock for Game Over Screen

Hello. I am currently in a Flash game programming class and can't seem to find a clock anywhere that counts down and then does an action. I've been using Lynda tutorials and that hasn't been helpful and I have also Google searched quite a bit, but no luck. I have a Countdown clock and have been try "if" statements, but no luck.

Can someone guide me in the right direction on what I am doing wrong?

ActionScript Code:
// game timer var count:Number = 60; // amount of time var myTimer:Timer = new Timer(1000,count); // time in ms, count is calling from line above myTimer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, countdown); myTimer.start(); function countdown(event:TimerEvent):void {     myText_txt.text = String((count)-myTimer.currentCount); //dynamic txt box shows current count } //if and else if statements if (((count)-myTimer.currentCount) == 58) {     gotoAndStop(2); }

Thank you!

Put your if statement inside your function.

Woah! Thanks! I also found the TIMER_COMPLETE object thing. Both work great!
