Hi,

I have a devision panel on my form called "counter" and the appearance set in the css:

#counter {
	position:absolute;
	left:10px;
	top:112px;
	width:150px;
	height:22px;
	text-align: left;
	color: #FFFFFF;
	font: 12px "Trebuchet MS", arial, sans-serif;
	font-weight: bold;
	z-index:6;
}

Open in new window


And on the devision "counter" I have inserted a javascript. that looks like this:

<!-- Begin

var showdate	= "yes"		// SHOW THE DATE ON THE PAGE

// START DATE SCRIPT

if (showdate == "yes") 
{
document.write('<div id="date-location">');
var d=new Date();
var weekday=new Array("Zondag","Maandag","Dinsdag","Woensdag","Donderdag","Vrijdag","Zaterdag");
var monthname=new Array("januari","februari","maart","april","mei","juni","juli","augustus","september","oktober","november","december");
document.write("<span class=\"date-font\"><nobr>" + weekday[d.getDay()] + " ");
document.write(d.getDate() + " ");
document.write(monthname[d.getMonth()] + " ");
document.write(d.getFullYear());
document.write("</nobr><br></span>");
document.write('</div>');
}
else {
document.write('&nbsp;<br>');
}
document.write('</td><td align="right">');

//  End -->

Open in new window


The code was used with tables , but I don't use tables anymore now I use devisions. What code
can be erased? And I don't use division "date-location" and class "date-font" anymore so that
should be erased too. Can anyone help me to change the code because its to hard for me to
understand. And the appearance of the devision cannot be changed.

Who can help me with erased the unnecessary code?

Greetings,
Peter Kiers

I guess you can delete Line 20-21-22-23-24 and put ";" at the end of line 19

Oke and what about the declarartion of  "date-location" and class "date-font" that i don't use anymore? p.

document.write('<div id="date-location">');

can stay as is... or

document.write('<div>');

document.write("<span class=\"date-font\"><nobr>" + weekday[d.getDay()] + " ");
>>>
document.write("<span><nobr>" + weekday[d.getDay()] + " ");

a bit confused... where is "id=counter"?

maybe you should do this:

document.write('<div id="date-location">');
>>>
document.write('<div id="counter">');

if you are writing all code above inside div id=counter, then you can delete these two lines as well...

document.write('<div id="date-location">');
document.write('</div>');

assuming you are doing this:

<div id="counter">
>>> script above comes here <<<
</div>
