JavaScript new Date() Value

Bob Schneider
Last Modified: 2021-04-28
Hi.  I need to input a classic asp value like 13:23:35.2 (as dRaceStart) into a javascript function (a time-of-day value with no reference to date) and have it calculate the difference in h:mm:ss at any point in time after that.  I have what looks like a nice js script to do that with but it starts with startedTime: new Date(); and I am pretty weak on js

I am wondering what modifications I have to do to my classic asp value above to get the function to work when I replace startedTime: new Date(); with startedTime: <%=dRaceStart%>;

Thank you very much!
