jQuery Countdown Reference

A jQuery plugin that sets a division or span to show a countdown to a given time. If you find this plugin useful please vote for it on the jQuery site.

This page provides a documentation reference for working with the plugin v1.5.11. See a demonstration of the countdown plugin and download the code from there. Or see a minimal page that you could use as a basis for your own investigations.


Instance Settings

A separate countdown instance is created for each targetted division or span:

$(selector).countdown({until: liftoffTime});

Each instance may have different settings, e.g.

$(selector).countdown({until: liftoffTime, format: 'HMS'});

Below are the options that may be applied to each countdown instance.
