Hello, 

I would like to know how to place the current time on a section of my web page, display it a hh:mm am/pm, and for it to change every second without refreshing the browser manually. I would also like to do the same for the date.

Thanks in advanced!

Hi Mikhail, and welcome to the FM Forums 

Hello, 

I would like to know how to place the current time on a section of my web page,

 

This Custom Function seems to do this https://www.briandunning.com/cf/1079

To do this natively, as mention, you will see a jump in the screen when it refreshes the screen.

The best way to do it is with either a JavaScript or PHP clock in a webviewer, or possibly embedded on the layout.

My question, would be why? Most devices have the time/date available to see at all times.

As Wim said, watch it carefully. It can and will cause performance issues. And you most definitely want anything messing with the timing of actions when you are trying to give the user a good UX, and safe data.

There is an example here: http://javascriptkit.com/script/cut2.shtml Now that was an ugly piece of code and a complete torturial,

I reindented the thing to make it halflegible: http://pastie.org/pastes/10467229/text?key=vvrpotfwm5y2axxufc5g

I would have done this way myself: http://pastie.org/pastes/10467239/text?key=bipgboktbu4qbmhihew
