How to add a digital clock to your Blogger

dc This digital clock script attempts to mimic that cool “glow in the dark” look of a LCD watch when it comes to its interface. This clock can also display the time in standard 12-hour format, with a “AM” and “PM” indicator. Note that in non IE4+/NS6+ browsers, a regular form clock is displayed instead.

Steps to follow:

1. Login into your Blogger dashboard > Layouts > Edit HTML

2. Insert the following section code below into your template right before the closing of head. </head>


<style>
<!--
.styling{
background-color:black;
color:lime;
font: bold 15px MS Sans Serif;
padding: 3px;
}
-->
</style>
3. Next, go to Layouts > Page Elements > and Add an HTML/JavaScript Gadget. Insert the following section code below as the HTML and after saving, move the gadget where you want the calendar to appear.

<span id="digitalclock" class="styling"></span>
<script>
<!--
var alternate=0
var standardbrowser=!document.all&&!document.getElementById

if (standardbrowser)
document.write('<form name="tick"><input type="text" name="tock" size="6"></form>')

function show(){
if (!standardbrowser)
var clockobj=document.getElementById? document.getElementById("digitalclock") : document.all.digitalclock
var Digital=new Date()
var hours=Digital.getHours()
var minutes=Digital.getMinutes()
var dn="AM"

if (hours==12) dn="PM"
if (hours>12){
dn="PM"
hours=hours-12
}
if (hours==0) hours=12
if (hours.toString().length==1)
hours="0"+hours
if (minutes<=9)
minutes="0"+minutes

if (standardbrowser){
if (alternate==0)
document.tick.tock.value=hours+" : "+minutes+" "+dn
else
document.tick.tock.value=hours+"   "+minutes+" "+dn
}
else{
if (alternate==0)
clockobj.innerHTML=hours+"<font color='lime'>&nbsp;:&nbsp;</font>"+minutes+" "+"<sup style='font-size:1px'>"+dn+"</sup>"
else
clockobj.innerHTML=hours+"<font color='black'>&nbsp;:&nbsp;</font>"+minutes+" "+"<sup style='font-size:1px'>"+dn+"</sup>"
}
alternate=(alternate==0)? 1 : 0
setTimeout("show()",1000)
}
window.onload=show

//-->
</script>
