Is there an example of a 7 day trial run code?

Post by Legend » Tue Jun 23, 2015 5:02 pm

Actually, I'm looking for a very simple 7 day trial run code.

Eg. Each time the program is run, it goes online check the date, if the online date is between 24 Jun 2015 and 30 Jun 2015, the program then continue executing the rest of the code. If online date is outside 24 Jun 2015 and 30 Jun 2015, then it prompt trial expired.

There is any link or example I can use for the above?

Thanks.

Hi,

Where do you want it to get the date from? This can be done using the HTTPRequest function to get it from a web service, or web page.

I just need a simple example to implement.

Currently looking at http://www.timeanddate.com/ and http://time.is/

Whichever is easier would be fine with me

Just make note you might want to have another check in place as well in case they block internet traffic.
