Hi Experts,

I am looking for a count down timer that will count down for 1 year...

the way i want it to display is

Days remaining,  Hours, minutes, seconds

so, for example i want it to count down from 7th June 2013 to an event running on the 7th June 2014 at 13:30:00

I want it to show :

358 Days 15 hours 23 Minutes 15 minutes 23 Seconds

Any and all help would be very much appreciated... Ive not done anythign like this before and there are so many examples but in C# and not too clear...

thanks

Simon

if you are working with ASP.NET, you will need the timer in javascript. not VB or C#.
if you replace CONTROL_NAME_WHERE_COUNTER_TO_SHOW with the element you want the counter to show on, the script will show you the count down.


function CountToMyEvent() {
      now      =Date.parse("June 07, 2013 23:59:59");
      kickoff  = Date.parse("June 07, 2014 13:30:00");
      diff = kickoff - now;

      days  = Math.floor( diff / (1000*60*60*24) );
      hours = Math.floor( diff / (1000*60*60) );
      mins  = Math.floor( diff / (1000*60) );
      secs  = Math.floor( diff / 1000 );

      dd = days;
      hh = hours - days  * 24;
      mm = mins  - hours * 60;
      ss = secs  - mins  * 60;

        document.getElementById("CONTROL_NAME_WHERE_COUNTER_TO_SHOW")
            .innerHTML =
                dd + ' days ' +
                hh + ' hours ' +
                mm + ' minutes ' +
                ss + ' seconds';
}
setInterval('CountToMyEvent()', 1000 )
