In the below condition , i need to run the time in decreasing order untill the date becomes equal..

5:35:00 left
5:34:30 left

0:29:00 left
       
ElseIf countdate = 1 Then
'                   i need to run the the time , in the decreasing order
'Label1.text =  with time count in decreasing order &"Left "
            End If

currentdate = Date.Now.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy")

            Dim diffdbdate As DateTime = dr.Item("date")

            Dim diffdate As Integer

            diffdate = DateDiff("d", currentdate, diffdbdate)

            Dim countdate As String = Replace(diffdate, "-", "")

            If currentdate > diffdbdate Then

                Label1.text =  countdate & "days Before"

            ElseIf countdate = 1 Then

Timespan helps you to do that... try this..

TimeSpan tsRemaining = EndDate - DateTime.Now;

time count was not decreasing, it actually displayed like this
 1.00:00:00 Left
 
 this is d code , i did...
ElseIf countdate = 1 Then
 Dim tsRemaining As TimeSpan = diffdbdate - currentdate
                 label1.text =tsRemaining.ToString() & "Left"
              End If

Basically timespan, if it is executed continously with some set of interval,, you get the effect of decreasing time...if you use AJAX extension , use timer control , and start the timer in

ElseIf countdate = 1 Then
        Timer1.Interval = 1000
         Timer1.Enabled=true
  End If

protected void Timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)

    {

          Dim tsRemaining As TimeSpan = diffdbdate - currentdate

                label1.text =tsRemaining.ToString() & "Left"

    }

did u mean this js...it jus calculate the time difference of two dates in millisecond......

hw can it be done as time count ......?



<input id="gwProxy" type="hidden"><!--Session data--><input onclick="jsCall();" id="jsProxy" type="hidden">
<script type="text/javascript">

                function stringToDate(string) {

                        var matches;

                    if (matches = string.match(/^(\d{4,4})-(\d{2,2})-(\d{2,2}) (\d{2,2}):(\d{2,2}):(\d{2,2})$/)) {

                       return new Date(matches[1], matches[2] - 1, matches[3], matches[4], matches[5], matches[6]);

                    } else {

                       return null;

                    };

                }
 

                //Convert duration from milliseconds to 0000:00:00.00 format

                function MillisecondsToDuration(n) {

                        var hms = "";

                        var dtm = new Date();

                        dtm.setTime(n);

                        var h = "000" + Math.floor(n / 3600000);

                        var m = "0" + dtm.getMinutes();

                        var s = "0" + dtm.getSeconds();

                        var cs = "0" + Math.round(dtm.getMilliseconds() / 10);

                        hms = h.substr(h.length-4) + ":" + m.substr(m.length-2) + ":";

                        hms += s.substr(s.length-2) + "." + cs.substr(cs.length-2);

                        return hms;

                }
 

                var beginDate = stringToDate('2008-09-19 07:14:00');

                var endDate = stringToDate('2008-09-19 17:35:00');
 

                var n = endDate.getTime() - beginDate.getTime();
 

                alert(MillisecondsToDuration(n));

        </script>

Hi,
Its really hard right...ok i can point to a user control which does everything for us. Add the control to your toolbox, and follow simple instruction to get remaining time.
There is a good sample for better understanding....

Remember: This uses the timespan as we discussed above..i think you can deduce a timespace with two dates.
