Display Date Time on Web Page

Use JavaScript to display date time on web page. Displaying the date and time within your web page is a good way to spice up your website and give it a more professional appearance.

var tmonth=new Array("January","February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December"); function GetClock(){ var d=new Date(); var nmonth=d.getMonth(),ndate=d.getDate(),nyear=d.getYear(); if(nyear<1000) nyear+=1900; var nhour=d.getHours(),nmin=d.getMinutes(),ap; if(nhour==0){ap=" AM";nhour=12;} else if(nhour12){ap=" PM";nhour-=12;} if(nmin<=9) nmin="0"+nmin; document.getElementById('webpageclock').innerHTML=""+tmonth[nmonth]+" "+ndate+", "+nyear+" "+nhour+":"+nmin+ap+""; } window.onload=function(){ GetClock(); setInterval(GetClock,1000); }

 

Date and Time

To display the date and time within your web page, place the following code within your HTML where you would like the date and time to appear.

<script type="text/javascript">
var tmonth=new Array("January"
,"February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December");

function GetClock(){
var d=new Date();
var nmonth=d.getMonth(),ndate=d.getDate(),nyear=d.getYear();
if(nyear<1000) nyear+=1900;

var nhour=d.getHours(),nmin=d.getMinutes(),ap;
if(nhour==0){ap=" AM";nhour=12;}
else if(nhour12){ap=" PM";nhour-=12;}

if(nmin<=9) nmin="0"+nmin;

document.getElementById('webpageclock').innerHTML=""+tmonth[nmonth]+" "+ndate+", "+nyear+" "+nhour+":"+nmin+ap+"";
}

window.onload=function(){
GetClock();
setInterval(GetClock,1000);
}
</script>
<div id="webpageclock" style="font:14pt Arial; color:#FF0000;"></div>

Edit the text in bold to suit your needs.

 

 
The following JavaScript code will display the date on your web page in the following format:

 
Place this code where you would like the date to appear:

<script language="JavaScript">
<!– Script courtesy of http://www.web-source.net – Your Guide to Professional Website Design and Development
var today_date= new Date()
var month=today_date.getMonth()+1
var today=today_date.getDate()
var year=today_date.getFullYear()
//document.write("Today’s date is: ")
document.write(month+"/"+today+"/"+year)
//–>
</script>

 
To change the font style and color, enclose the above JavaScript code with your font tags. Or, better yet, use CSS.

You can change the date format from this:

 
To this:

 
Or this:

 

Locate the following line in the code:

document.write(month+”/”+today+”/”+year)

Change it to one of the following codes.

If you’d like your date to be separated by a dash, use this code:

document.write(month+”-“+today+”-“+year)

If you’d like your date to be separated by a period, use this code:

document.write(month+”.”+today+”.”+year)

This concludes the Display Date on Web Page code.
