I am trying to count seconds / milliseconds and display it like 1.11.21.31.41.51.61.71.81.92.02.1etc.... 10.1etc..20.120.2because I am trying to clock how fast someone is typing but seconds are not a small enough unit to measure with. thanks for any help

This is probably the dumbest of all of the ways you could possibly make this happen but it seems to be working so farvar timer:Timer = new Timer(100, 6000);timer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, countup);timer.start();function countup(event:TimerEvent) {var totalcount:int = timer.currentCount; if(totalcount < 10) { myText.text = String(totalcount); } else if ((totalcount > 10) && (totalcount < 100)) { myText.text = String(totalcount).substr(0,1) + "." + String(totalcount).substr(1,1); } else if ((totalcount > 100) && (totalcount < 1000)) { myText.text = String(totalcount).substr(0,2) + "." + String(totalcount).substr(2,2); } else if ((totalcount > 1000) && (totalcount < 10000)) { myText.text = String(totalcount).substr(0,3) + "." + String(totalcount).substr(3,3); } else if ((totalcount > 10000) && (totalcount < 100000)) { myText.text = String(totalcount).substr(0,4) + "." + String(totalcount).substr(4,4); }}
