Status Bar Clock

(Internet Explorer 6)

If you're looking for a way to spice up your web site, this JavaScript code will enable you to display a status bar clock. The status bar is the area at the bottom of a web page that displays various information, such as a web address or link information when you place your mouse over or click on a link.

Example displayed below in the status bar.

Place this code between your <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags:

<script Language="JavaScript">
<!-- Script courtesy of - Your Guide to Professional Web Site Design and Development
// Navigation - Stop
// Netscapes Clock - Start
// this code was taken from Netscapes JavaScript documentation at
// on Jan.25.96

var timerID = null;
var timerRunning = false;

function stopclock (){
timerRunning = false;

function showtime () {
var now = new Date();
var hours = now.getHours();
var minutes = now.getMinutes();
var seconds = now.getSeconds()
var timeValue = "" + ((hours >12) ? hours -12 :hours)
timeValue += ((minutes < 10) ? ":0" : ":") + minutes
timeValue += ((seconds < 10) ? ":0" : ":") + seconds
timeValue += (hours >= 12) ? " P.M." : " A.M."
window.status = timeValue;
// you could replace the above with this
// and have a clock on the status bar:
timerID = setTimeout("showtime()",1000);
timerRunning = true;

function startclock () {
// Make sure the clock is stopped

// -->

Place the bold code within your <BODY> tag:

<BODY onLoad="startclock()">

Place this code below your <BODY> tag:

<form name="clock" onSubmit="0">
