I wanna make a movie that every time when they start up shows the current
date on the display.

Not verry special, but i make the script, and every time i start up the date
on the display is the the when i make the script.

It never changed.
Here is my script,

on startMovie
date = the long date

RE: The current date

ok this is how you do it. First of all you need a movie script with the following in it,,,, on startdate
  p=the long date
  set the text of field "date"=string(p)

Then you will need to insert a text field onto the stage.
Name it "date". Then put this script on it.
