The application “Observatorio Elecciones Colombia 2010” (Observatory of Presidential Elections – Colombia 2010) joins together different sources of information from the web that publish news about several Colombian political facts related to the presidential candidates and pre-candidates. For its representation on the map, the application gets the geographical location, candidates’ names, political party and some relevant topics posted in the news which are extracted from newspapers, magazines, social networks like Twitter, Facebook or even their personal web pages.

DateFormatter parseDateString Replacement(

February 18, 2007 at 4:36 pm | Posted in as3, flex2 | 8 Comments

Searching in flex documentation I have found that parseDateString is a protected method… (why protected? it really sucks…)

If you need a “quick and dirty” method to parse a date from a string, maybe this could help you:

public class DateUtil {

public static function parseString(stringDate:String) : Date{
var milis:Number = Date.parse(stringDate);
return new Date(milis);
}
}

stringDate Format restrictions (From Date Documentation):

The Time Zone Designation (TZD) is always in the form GMT-HHMM or UTC-HHMM indicating the hour and minute offset relative to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which is now also called universal time (UTC). The year month and day terms can be separated by a forward slash (/) or by spaces, but never by a dash (-). Other supported formats include the following (you can include partial representations of these formats; that is, just the month, day, and year):

     MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS TZD

     HH:MM:SS TZD Day Mon/DD/YYYY

     Mon DD YYYY HH:MM:SS TZD

     Day Mon DD HH:MM:SS TZD YYYY

     Day DD Mon HH:MM:SS TZD YYYY

     Mon/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS TZD

     YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS TZD
