Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Pete, that's an old comment that doesn't relate to the return value anymore. If you go back to the first post you will see the innerHTML where it's used.

          Re: Countdown timer in a list control

          That almost works, Alex. I think there was one thing misunderstood. The ItemDate is the date/time that the item was ADDED to the cart, not the time it expires. The countdown should count down 12 hours from the date/time the item was added to the cart. I think you have it counting down to the ItemDate.

          And what is the RequiredDate field for? I don't see where that comes into play.

            Got it. changed

            var one_hour = 60 * 60 * 1000; /* ms */
            to
            var one_hour = 43200001; /* ms */

            which adds the 12 hours to the ItemDate. And it works as intended. Whoohoo!!! Thank you!!

              Re: Countdown timer in a list control

              Last question on this for now. Now to filter the list based on the expiration time.

              Filter where ItemDate is within 12 hours of now. In other words, when the time expires, it filters out so it doesn't show up. Would this be best as an SQL filter or a List filter?

                Re: Countdown timer in a list control

                I would use sql filter as there is no need to have data of expired items being pulled down to client.

                  RequiredDate was just some left over data when i converted the data source from northwinds db. Please ignore:)

                    Good stuff :) i would update the variable ref name to addTwelveHours so when you or someone else reads the code life is made easier.

                      Good idea, Alex. Thanks again.

                      I can't figure out the SQL filter. I may be overthinking this, but 'ItemDate <= ItemDate + 12 hours' would be the method. Can't get the 'ItemDate + 12 hours' thing right.

                          Re: Countdown timer in a list control

                          I think my problem might be the date/time format. I'm finding that time("yyyy-MM-dd 0h:0m:0s",<value>) is the US value, and it appears you're in Australia.

                          My list throws a conversion error when adding the WHERE clause. I have to save the format time("dd/MM/yyy 0h:0m:0s am",<value>) in a character field. Can't get it to insert into a datetime field.

                          And, when I use the US datetime format, it enters fine into a datetime field, but it's 1 hour off. It starts at 11 hours instead of 12 on the countdown.

                          Make sense?
