Making A Javascript Calendar & Clock

Posted 05 March 2003 - 02:33 PM

Hello everyone :)

First of all, My name is Mindful people call me Nai. I'm a 19 year old female from the East coast of USA :rolleyes:

Anyway, I just recently became interested in making my own scripts and things like that. I was wondering if anyone knew a good place to start learning to make something like this calendar / clock.

Any help / input would be appreciated and all I need is a push in the right direction. Thanks a lot.

:)
Mindful.

This place has some time and date apps available. You could take a look at some, and see if they can help you learn. Basically, building time and date apps in javascript requires getting the system time and displaying it. Javascript has a ton of built in functions for this, although you can code them from scratch as well.
Some Stuff
Also, you can do a Google search for javascript tutorials, and you should get some good hits for learning the language.

Hello Nai and welcome to DIC!
BBN, I'm really flattered.... :P

First, may I ask you what you can do with Javascript already?
I would love to know that!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I don't know much javascript, I just know how to alter other people's code but I want to do everything myself so I can have more freedom (and less obligatory links on my page) I'll try everything you all suggested thanks a lot for your help :)

@Bluntedbynature: I'm from Washington DC


EDIT:
I learned to do it from w3schools. Thanks for the help everyone.
