Demo & Instructions | Download

Getting started

Load the plugin in a script tag (right after loading jQuery) directly from CDNjs using this URL,

https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/timer.jquery/0.7.0/timer.jquery.js

If you are using bower,

bower install timer.jquery

Alternatively you can download the jQuery timer plugin and host it relative to your HTML file. Once you have your preferred way to get jquery and the timer plugin, in your web page:

<script src="path/to/jquery.js"></script>
<script src="path/to/timer.jquery.js"></script>
<script>
(function($) {

  //start a timer
  $("#div-id").timer();

}());
</script>

Usage

To start a timer with options:

$("#div-id").timer(options);

Options for timer:

$("#div-id").timer({
	seconds:	{Int},		// The number of seconds to start the timer from
	duration: 	{String},	// The time to countdown from. `seconds` and `duration` are mutually exclusive
	callback: 	{Function},	// If duration is set, this function is called after `duration` has elapsed
	repeat: 	{Bool},		// If duration is set, `callback` will be called repeatedly
	format:		{String},	// Format to show time in
	editable:	{Bool}		// If click and edit time is enabled
});

Methods available on an initialized timer:

//pause an existing timer
$("#div-id").timer('pause');

//resume a paused timer
$("#div-id").timer('resume');

//remove an existing timer
$("#div-id").timer('remove');  //leaves the display intact

//get elapsed time in seconds
$("#div-id").data('seconds');

Timed Events

Start a timer and execute a function after a certain duration. You can use this to simulate a timed event.

//start a timer & execute a function in 5 minutes & 30 seconds
$('#div-id').timer({
	duration: '5m30s',
	callback: function() {
		alert('Time up!');
	}
});

Start a timer and execute a function repeatedly at a certain duration.

//start a timer & execute a function every 2 minutes
$('#div-id').timer({
	duration: '2m',
	callback: function() {
		console.log('Why, Hello there');	//you could have a ajax call here instead
	},
	repeat: true //repeatedly calls the callback you specify
});

Start a timer and execute a function repeatedly at a certain duration and then reset the timer.

//start a timer & execute a function every 2 minutes
$('#div-id').timer({
	duration: '2m',
	callback: function() {
		$('#div-id').timer('reset');
	},
	repeat: true //repeatedly calls the callback you specify
});

Timer state

You can get the current state of timer by querying the state property on it's data object

$('#div-id').data('state'); 	// running | paused | stopped
Duration Syntax

When you initialize a timer with the duration and callback parameters, the timer plugin executes the callback function at the set duration. The syntax for specifying the duration is verbose. h for hours. m for minutes and s for seconds. Here are some examples:

'3h15m'		// 3 hours, 15 minutes
'15m'		// 15 minutes
'30s'		// 30 seconds
'2m30s'		// 2 minutes 30 seconds
'2h15m30s'	// 2 hours 15 minutes and 30 seconds
Format Syntax

By default the timer displays the biggest whole unit. Examples:

  • seconds: 50 will show as 50 sec
  • seconds: 63 will show as 1:03 min
  • seconds: 3663 will show as 1:01:03

If you want to customize the format in which the timer displays time, use the format option. Available formats the timer understands are:

Format Description Example
%h Non-zero padded Hours %h hours gives 3 hours
%m Non-zero padded Minutes unless number of minutes is greater than 60 %h:%m minutes gives 0:6 minutes or 1:06 minutes
%g Non-zero padded Total Minutes Irrelative to hours %G minutes gives 75 minutes or 6 minutes
%s Non-zero padded Seconds unless number of seconds is greater than 60 %h:%m:%s gives 0:0:6 or 0:1:06 or 1:01:06
%t Non-zero padded Total Seconds Irrelative to minutes and hours %t gives 3660 or '9'
%H Zero padded Hours %H hours gives 03 hours
%M Zero padded Minutes %H:%M minutes gives 00:06 minutes
%G Zero padded Total Minutes Irrelative to hours %G minutes gives 75 minutes
%S Zero padded Seconds %H:%M:%S gives 00:00:06
%T Zero padded Total Seconds Irrelative to minutes and hours %T gives 3660

Countdown

You can use the jQuery timer plugin for countdown as well.

$('#timerDiv').timer({
    countdown: true,
    duration: '3m40s',    	// This will start the countdown from 3 mins 40 seconds
    callback: function() {	// This will execute after the duration has elapsed
    	console.log('Time up!');
    }
});
