When you setInterval, stack them in an array. array.length will give you number of active inetervals.

You need to write your code for managing these.

var myint = new Array();

myint[0] =window.setInterval ("func1()", 1000);
myint[1] =window.setInterval ("func2()", 1000);

I did that but i'm not sure it can help me.
My page can display different types of data. For each type i want to clear the previous set of intervals and create new ones.
I am doing that by saving the intervals names in an array, as suggested, so that after every change of data i clear the previous intervals and create new ones.
Since the performence of the page is not so good, i have a feeling that this mechanism doesn't work so well. To make sure, i thought i would popup an alert with the number of active intervals.
Is that possible?

Thanks you,
Dana

Hi

if you put all your timers into an array named say... timers()

funtion countTimer(){
var msg = ''
for(var x in timers)
msg = msg + '\n' + timers[x]

}
<span onclick="countTimer()">Click Me</span>

That shoudl give you an idea of how many timers there are

If the timers are not associative arrays, then
