    how to start the timer in external js?

    Hi guys,

    I have got a problem with my timer variable in javascript. I can't be able to start the timer every one second to input the clock time in my webpage. I tried to find out but i can't find the solution.


    here is the html code:

    Code:
    <html>
    <body>
    
    <style type="text/css">  
         
    #mytextfont {
        font-family:Arial;
        font-size:43px;
        font-style:normal;
        font-weight:normal;
        color:e5ee6f;
        text-decoration:none;
        text-transform:none; 
        position:absolute; 
        visibility:hidden; 
        overflow:hidden; 
        left:50px; top:40px; width:376px; height:90px; 
        z-index:0;
    }
    
    <span id="text1">this is a text</span>
    
    <div id="image1" style="position:absolute; overflow:hidden; left:328px; top:7px; width:164px; height:102px; z-index:0"><img src="/images/picture1.jpg" alt="" title="" border=0 width=164 height=102></div>
    
    <div id="image2" style="position:absolute; overflow:hidden; left:492px; top:7px; width:201px; height:102px; z-index:0"><img src="/images/picture2.jpg" alt="" title="" border=0 width=211 height=102></div>
    
    <script type="text/javascript" src="keyboard.js"></script>
    </body>
    </html>
    key.js:

    Code:
    function clocktimer()
    {
      var date = new Date();
      var weekday=new Array(7);
      weekday[0]="Sun";
      weekday[1]="Mon";
      weekday[2]="Tue";
      weekday[3]="Wed";
      weekday[4]="Thurs";
      weekday[5]="Fri";
      weekday[6]="Sat";
      var months=new Array(11);
      months[0]="January";
      months[1]="February";
      months[2]="March";
      months[3]="April";
      months[4]="May";
      months[5]="June";
      months[6]="July";
      months[7]="August";
      months[8]="September";
      months[9]="October";
      months[10]="November";
      months[11]="December";
      var d = date.getDate();
      var h = today.getHours();
      var m = today.getMinutes();
      document.getElementById("datetime").innerHTML =+ h+':'+ m+' '+ weekday[date.getDay()]+' '+ d+' '+ months[date.getMonth()];
    }
    
    document.onkeydown = function(ev) 
    {
       ev = ev || event;
       key = ev.keyCode || ev.which;
       var image1 = document.getElementById("image1").getElementsByTagName("img")[0];
       var image2 = document.getElementById("image2").getElementsByTagName("img")[0];
    
    if(key == 13)
    {
      var img1 = image1.src;
      var img2 = image2.src;
      
      if (img1.indexOf('picture1_yellow.jpg') != -1)
      {
         if (img2.indexOf('picture2_yellow.jpg') != -1)
         {      
             document.getElementById("text1").style.visibility = "visible";
             document.getElementById("image1").style.visibility = "hidden"; 
             document.getElementById("image2").style.visibility = "hidden"; 
             setInterval("clocktimer",1000);
         }
      }
    }
    Do you know how i can start the timer in javascript in every one second while update the text in html page?

    Any advice would be much appreicated.

    Thanks in advance

    Simply press the enter key (which keyCode is 13) !

    The function clocktimer is made to display the result in an element with the id datetime.
    Where is this element ? To change to text1 ?

    NB : There is 12 months. Then var months=new Array(12); would be better (still useless) !
    The script is keyboard.js not key.js ?
    Shorter syntax for days (and months) :
    Code:
    var weekday="Sun,Mon,Tue,Wed,Thurs,Fri,Sat".split(",");
