Clock Example

Question: How do I write a clock program in JavaScript?

Answer: A simple clock program would retrieve a new Date() every second (or, better yet, several times a second) and then display the time information from the Date() object. The following code displays a clock on the browser's status bar:

function sbClock() {
 var DateString=(new Date()).toString();
 self.status=DateString.substring(0,3+DateString.lastIndexOf(':'));
 setTimeout("sbClock()",200);
}
sbClock();
