Dear Experts,

I have found a very nice javascript script that detects users timezone. The javascript calculates the timezone and then checks the results again a select menu, to display the correct timezone.

It is not perfect but for my purposes it works well. What I need it to put the javascript into a hidden form field or create a variable from the results from the timezone.js so I can then insert into my DB.

I do not know javascript at all and I do not even know were to begin. I have included the two files. index.html that has the select menu and the timezone.js which does the calculation.

     index.html detect-timezone.js

Many thanks as always

add a hidden field

e.g.
<input id="hfTimeZone" type="hidden" />

in the js file add this line

document.getElementById('hfTimeZone').value = convert(std_time_offset)+","+dst;

above this line..
if (document.getElementById('timezone')) {

<script type=text/javascript>
function timezonefunction() {
    result= .... do something ...;
    document.getElementById('MyHiddenField').innerHTML = "<input type='hidden' name='somename' value=result />
}
</script>
</head>
   
<body onLoad=timezonefunction()>
<form name="some_name" action="new_url">
<div id=MyHiddenField></div>
.....

You can place a div box with an id and modify that div box using javascript as shown in above example.
