JQuery CountDown

Posted on 2010-08-26

Hi there,

The following is the datetime field value stored in an SQLserver database in Brazil:  2010-08-26 21:46:42.380

I parsed it inside SQLserver, to be able to get the year, month, hour and minute.

Now I need to fill the "until" countdown parameter in the Jquery CountDown Javascript package... the link to it is below.

I did like below:

until: new Date(myYear, myMonth - 1, myHour, myMinute + 40), timezone: -3

because I want to give 40minutes, from the time stored, to the countdown timer.  

The number that appears has NOTHING to do with 40minutes after the time stored. How should I understand/fix that?

Thanks!

the day is missing too :

until: new Date(myYear, myMonth - 1, myDay, myHour, myMinute + 40, 0), timezone: -3

please confirm myYear, myMonth, MyDay myHour and MyMinute is set somewhere (from the database)

Sorry, but in the code is not missing (my fault when typing here at EE, only)... have a look:

until: new Date(<%=(rsParsingStartTimes.Fields.Item("YearStart").Value)%>, <%=(rsParsingStartTimes.Fields.Item("MonthStart").Value)%>-1 , <%=(rsParsingStartTimes.Fields.Item("DayStart").Value)%>, <%=(rsParsingStartTimes.Fields.Item("HourStart").Value)%>, <%=(rsParsingStartTimes.Fields.Item("MinuteStart").Value)%> +40,0), timezone: -3});

Perhaps the problem is NOT related to that, leakim... now I´m checking!

That´s it... it WASN´T that at all, it was a problem of reading the recordset...

Well, thanks a LOT, anyway.

See you in my next difficulties, I hope.  

Best Regards, fskilnik.
