Units Conversion Tool

Units Conversion Tool


This tool can be included on your website, in a presentation, or even used as a desktop application! (Just add a shortcut on your desktop and run it whenever you need a conversion.)

Over 60 of the most common units of measure are included, covering the following measurement categories:
  • Angle
  • Area
  • Length (Distance)
  • Mass
  • Speed
  • Temperature
  • Time
  • Volume

For a COOKING/FOOD/RECIPE website...there are cooking conversions in the volume module (teaspoons, tablespoons, fluid ounces, cups, pints, quarts, gallons).

For a SPORTS/FITNESS/RUNNING website...there are distance conversions in the length module (miles, kilometers), speed (miles per hour, km/hr) and mass (pounds, ounces).

The color of the tool’s body is customizable and can be specified in an included XML file. Just open the XML in your preferred text editor and change colors instantly. (Note: Background color, although not changeable in the preview, can also be set to your choice of color according to your master Flash project or controlled with HTML code parameters “bgcolor” or “wmode”.)

Instructions are included!

This tool is completely contained in its own movieclip – just drag-and-drop into your project.

FLA file in CS3 format – Coded in ActionScript 2.0 – OK to publish for Flash Player 8 or higher.

Unspecified units are U.S. customary units.

(This units conversion tool was created for personal use and has been tested for correctness. A large number of significant digits are used in the conversion factors in order to achieve accurate results.)
