Hi there,

I have looked every at every coner of the web, but cant find it anywhere.

So I have come here for anybodys help.

I want to count down script that repeats. when it hits 0

I have found one on the front page of http://www.globat.com

I want it to work the same.

it basicly counts down for 24 hours then repeats.

I think it uses php to get server time and then javascript to count down.

I would love it if some Genius could help me out here.

Cheers Coding champs!

Here is a script that should get you started:


<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
<!--
var countdownValue='10';
var countdownValue2='10';

function countdownScript()
{
var showCountdown=document.getElementById('countdown');
showCountdown.innerHTML=countdownValue;
Timer=setTimeout("countdownScript();", 1000);
countdownValue--;
if(countdownValue<0)
{countdownValue=10}
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<span id="countdown" style="position:absolute;top:10;left:20"></span>
<script language="javascript">
<!--
countdownScript();
//-->
</script>
</body>
</html>

Try searching the forums, I once posted a variable reoccurring countdown timer script that allows you to choose a start date and time to begin counting and how many days or weeks to countdown before it resets itself and begins the countdown again... Not sure if it is what you are looking for tho, and if you are only wishing to countdown a 24 hour period, I'm not sure how it will work for that since it was orginally designed to countdown 7 day periods...
