Hello,

Can someone help me with the:

"Cut & Paste Count down until any date (Down-to-the second)"
"http://www.javascriptkit.com/script/script2/count2.shtml"

script taken from this site?

I need the countdown to stop when it reaches zero and not start counting backward. I'm a psychology teacher and I'm using the script to let students know how long they have to take an exam.

Everything else is working perfectly, now I just want the timer to stop...

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

var SetTimeOutPeriod = (Math.abs(CountStepper)-1)*1000 + 990;
putspan(BackColor, ForeColor);
var dthen = new Date(TargetDate);
var dnow = new Date();
if(CountStepper>0)
ddiff = new Date(dnow-dthen);
else
ddiff = new Date(dthen-dnow);
gsecs = Math.floor(ddiff.valueOf()/1000);
CountBack(gsecs);





just save it and do like the above call :P
