Example 1

The basic usage of the script is:


Or if you are using jQuery:

<script>$( function(){(new ElapsedTimer('elapsed_time')).start();} );</script>

The followig example does not tick off the seconds. It only changes every minute. The prefix and suffix is not output until the elapsed time is non-zero, or in other words, not until after a minute has past.


Or if you are using jQuery:

$( function(){(new ElapsedTimer('elapsed_minutes',{prefix:' You started viewing this page ', suffix:' ago.', show_seconds:false})).start();} );
