I am quite new writing Javascripts... and I would be very grateful if you could help me with this situation...

I would really love to have the above script, but having the user to enter the data in order to calculate how many days he is living...

I have created a form but doesnt work due probably to my poor skills... could someone help me with this??? Thank you

<FORM name="form">
<TABLE BORDER=0>
Enter DAY number you wish to calculate for:</TD>
<TD><INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="day" VALUE="" SIZE=5> </TD>

<TR><TD>
Enter MONTH number you wish to calculate for (jan=1):</TD>
<TD><INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="month" VALUE="" SIZE=5></TD>

<TR><TD>
Enter YEAR you wish to calculate for:</TD>
<TD><INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="year" VALUE="" SIZE=5></TD>
</TABLE>

Press the compute button to calculate yout time living info:
<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Compute !"
onClick="calculate(crosscount);">
or <INPUT TYPE="reset" VALUE="Reset form">

That's fairly straightfoward. Use the original script as is, but remove the line:


window.onload=start_countup

inside it. Then for your form, it would look something like this:


<form id="calform">
Enter YEAR you wish to calculate for<br />
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="year" VALUE="" SIZE=5><br />

Enter MONTH number you wish to calculate for (jan=1):<br />
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="month" VALUE="" SIZE=5><br />

Enter DAY number you wish to calculate for:<br />
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="day" VALUE="" SIZE=5><br />

<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Compute" onClick="setcountup(this.form.year.value,this.form.month.value,this.form.day.value); start_countup()">

</form>

Hope this helps,

Thank you... Thank you ddadmin... you are the one :)

here is the complete code for those who might be interesting



<form id="calform">
Enter YEAR you wish to calculate for<br />
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="year" VALUE="" SIZE=5><br />

Enter MONTH number you wish to calculate for (jan=1):<br />
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="month" VALUE="" SIZE=5><br />

Enter DAY number you wish to calculate for:<br />
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="day" VALUE="" SIZE=5><br />

<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Compute" onClick="setcountup(this.form.year.value,this.form.month.value,this.form.day.value); start_countup()">

//////////CONFIGURE THE countup SCRIPT HERE//////////////////

//STEP 1: Configure the date to count up from, in the format year, month, day:

var displaymessage="have passed since the debut of our site!"

//STEP 3: Configure the below 5 variables to set the width, height, background color, and text style of the countup area
var countupwidth='95%'
var countupheight='20px' //applicable only in NS4
var countupbgcolor='lightyellow'
var opentags='<font face="Verdana"><small>'
