One of the great things about Java Script is that it lets you manipulate the contents of a Web page in real-time.This means that we can use Java Script to create a digital clock, embedded in the Web page, that updates every second. If we want to create a clock then obviously we need to retrieve the current time.
People have reported that although they have manually set the date/time on their computer, this gets changed by the windows time server (time.windows.com) when connected to the Internet and for some reason it doesn't display the right date/time.I tried the Android N beta some time ago (I can't remember if the widgets updated then though). But I'm guessing the Android N beta has nothing to do with my problem? Are there some settings that I could have executed that froze my widgets?But because there were some problems with applications I use daily, I reverted back to my old Android 6.0.1 build. Maybe something with battery optimizations or something?The following is an excerpt from Change the Default Update Interval If your clock is constantly out of sync even though it says the sync was successful, the problem could be that your computer is losing time because of a system clock problem.A workaround in this instance is to change the NTP client to update more often.In the article you mentioned "You might like to try putting the various time components in separate span containers, so that you can style them individually."I'm extremely new at this and have actually (surprisingly) gotten everything else to work except, I would love to be able to display the hours, minutes and seconds under separate div or span tags in order to modify them individually using css. Keep in mind I'm a complete noob and would love as step by step instructions as you possibly have patience for. I apologize in advance if it's very long and dirty...Element By Id("hours").first Value = current Hours;Element By Id("minutes").first Value = current Minutes;Element By Id("seconds").first Value = current Seconds; matt, Thanks so much for the help. Without having to re-write all the code and clean everything up to make up for my novice discrepancies, The quickest and easiest thing was to create a separate update function for each component in the clock and displaying them that way.I think the problem is that I have all the date and weather functions combined on one thing and they're not the most efficiently written as I was figuring it out as I went along.set Interval(expression, timeout); The function set Timeout is intended for a single timeout, so using set Interval would be a more appropriate option.Set Interval will run regularly without the additional lines that Ivo's answer has.I have several widgets that should update regularly: chats, weather, Google Fit, call logs etc; and none of them is updating.When I reboot my phone, it updates the widgets one time, and that's that. For example, I have the widget for Google Fit on my home screen, and it is still showing the status from a couple of days ago; when I rebooted my phone.
