Start And End Time Movie/presentation


Recommended Posts

Dear freaks :).

I need to make a program for my old primary school, just to help them out.

I thought it was going to be quite simple but I have some major problems.

The idea is this:

Fill in a start time and start date(year,month,day hours,minutes)

FIll in a end time and end date


Safe both into a database, and pick them up.


Let the movie/powerpoint/school information play without other human imput.


The most important thing is just the information, wich I have ready in a file.


How can I do this?


Maybe mktime() is an option?


Let me know and maybe show me some pieces of code you guys think is perfect!


Greetings from the cold, little country called Holland!

How does your code look, at least what you got so far? Also, I'm a bit uncertain about what, exactly, you want the system to do. Sketching it up in a bullet point list might be a good idea, preferably it could also help you figure out the problem(s) on your own. If not, it'll at least help us understand your problem better.

No, the plan is.

A movie, or information, or powerpoint starts playing at the time i define and ends at the time i define.


For example:







Means, that everyday, it runs from 11:30 untill 12:30.


If its done it returns to the main screen, or starts a new thing, depends what is told to the system.


I don't have to code here, since Im not at my company now, I will post it tomorrow @ 8 in the morning, dutch time.


Thanks in advance
