jQuery Countdown Timer Script Example in

Oct 16, 2012

Here I will explain how to show or create countdown timer script in
jQuery using

In previous articles I explained Redirect to another page after 5 seconds,
Get Current Datetime, Auto refresh page , Disable right click on image and many articles relating to JQuery. Now I will explain how to implement or show current time on webpage using jQuery.

In many websites we will some timers running and saying that this much time left to launch our new product or this much time you need to wait to download our product like this

We can implement this functionality easily by using jQuery Countdown plugin. This will show images like clock style that change with a great animation.

Usage of this plugin will be like this

Basic Usage

$('#counter').countdown({ startTime: "01:12:32:55" });

Complete Usage

stepTime: 60,
format: 'hh:mm:ss',
startTime: "12:32:55",
digitImages: 6,
digitWidth: 53,
digitHeight: 77,
timerEnd: function() { alert('end!!'); },
image: "digits.png"
 Check below example to implement this one

<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>jQuery Countdown plugin Example in</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="">
<script src="jquery.countdown.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {

startTime: '01:12:12:00'

startTime: '00:10',
format: 'mm:ss',
digitImages: 6,
digitWidth: 53,
digitHeight: 77,
timerEnd: function() { alert('end!'); },
image: 'digits.png'
<style type="text/css">
br { clear: both; }
.cntSeparator {
font-size: 54px;
margin: 10px 7px;
color: #000;
.desc { margin: 7px 3px; }
.desc div {
float: left;
font-family: Arial;
width: 70px;
margin-right: 65px;
font-size: 13px;
