Make a Date and time script

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a date and time script that will 'refresh' every second, I would like for the just the script to reload, and not the entire page, because if you have a big page, it will take long to keep reloading the page every second.

So, has of now, I have a working script which reloads the page, and does it guick, because its jus tthe plain page. If anyone knows the answer to this SIMPLE guestion, please let me know.

Heres the page itself
[a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\"]Click here for the page[/a]

Heres the code
CONTENT="1; URL=date.php">

$today = date("F j, Y, g:i:s A");

echo "<B>Time and Date: $today</B>";

no no you need AJAX to do that kind of small update to the page. I suppose it would be like to take the time with php and then in java add 1 second every second an update the area with the date inside it, or else get the time from java itself and not use php at all.

Right. That's exactly what javascript 'clocks' are meant to do.
