Hello everyone,
I m doing online exam project. I want to show countdown timer and calculate time for which I have written following code but it doesn't work. Please help me.
Thanks in advance.

In the form tags:

XML
<input type="hidden" id="timeAllocated" name="timeAllocated" value="30" runat="server" />


then set the timeAlloted control in Page_Load:
C#
if ( !IsPostBack )
        timeAllocated.Value = value-from-database.ToString();

Javascript:
JavaScript
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function window::onload()
{
 var timeAlloted = 30;
 if ( document.getElementById('timeAllocated').value.length > 0 )
  timeAlloted = parseFloat(document.getElementById('timeAllocated').value);
 else
  document.getElementById('timeAllocated').value = timeAlloted;
 document.getElementById('timerDisplaySpan').innerHTML =
  '<b>Time Remaining: ' + timeAlloted + " Minutes.</b>";

 // 1000 = 1 second...
 window.setInterval('decrementTimer()', 60000);
}
function decrementTimer()
{
 var timeAlloted = parseFloat(document.getElementById('timeAllocated').value);
 timeAllote-;
 document.getElementById('timeAllocated').value = timeAlloted;
 document.getElementById('timerDisplaySpan').innerHTML =
  '<b>Time Remaining: ' + timeAlloted + " Minutes.</b>";
}
// -->;
</script>

Is it "timeAllote-;" or a typo.
It should be "timeAlloted--;"

1 solution

1. "timeAllote-;" would be " timeAllote--;"
2. Where/When do you call decrementTimer?

Lastly, what didn't work. Any error?

When did you set the visibility of 'timerDisplaySpan'? I mean is it always visible in your html? Further, why do you want to change the full InnerHTMl when changing just the time label would do for you?
