These few lines of code will do the job.


<script language="javascript">
function printCurrentTime () {
documen.write ((new Date()).toString());
}
</script>

<div>Current Time : <script language="javascript">printCurrentTime();</script></div>

Hi Mike_Stevens,

Building on pravinasar's code:

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<script language="javascript">
function printCurrentTime () {
document.getElementById("time").innerHTML = "Current Time: " + new Date().toString();
}
setInterval("printCurrentTime();",1000);
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="time"></div>
</body>
</html>


Hope this helps,
Neal.

To display second,

use this one
<script language="javascript">
function printCurrentTime () {
document.write ((new Date()).toLocaleString());
}
</script>

<div>Current Time : <script language="javascript">printCurrentTime();</script></div>
