Hi I have created a countdown clock in JavaScript Now I want to put that clock into a Div tag and format it but unsure how can anyone help?


<!doctype html>
<script type="text/javascript">
function cdtd ()

var disney = new Date("August 25, 2015 03:00:00");
var now = new Date ();
var timeDiff = disney.getTime() - now.getTime();

var seconds = Math.floor(timeDiff / 1000);
var minutes = Math.floor(seconds / 60);
var hours = Math.floor(minutes / 60);
var days = Math.floor(hours / 24);

hours %= 24;
minutes %= 60;
seconds%= 60;

document.getElementById("daysBox").innerHTML = days;
document.getElementById("hoursBox").innerHTML = hours;
document.getElementById("minsBox").innerHTML = minutes;
document.getElementById("secsBox").innerHTML = seconds;

var timer = setTimeout ('cdtd()', 1000);


<div id="daysBox"></div>
<div id="hoursBox"></div>
<div id="minsBox"></div>
<div id="secsBox"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">cdtd(); </script>

Thanks Joel

RE: Javascript and CSS

Your code is already in DIVS.


<div id="daysBox"></div>
<div id="hoursBox"></div>
<div id="minsBox"></div>
<div id="secsBox"></div> 

Formatting would be done via CSS by applying it to your Divs. what exactly do you want the end product to look like?
