Live clock extension for Qlik Sense?

Having searched around, I can't find an extension that shows a live clock on a dashboard. There are several tuturials showing how easy (ish) it is to code one using HTML/Javascript, but I've not been able to get one working as a Qlik Sense extension.

Has anyone here successfully built one?

Hello Chris,

I have an extension that might help your purposes. It is far from being perfect, but maybe it'll make do.

Hi David

Nice extension! This could be useful, but I need a digital one with seconds and milliseconds if possible (should have mentioned that).

The use case is to provide a timer for screenshots when performance testing.

Thanks

Hi Chris,

A digital clock would be even easier. You can reuse quite a lot of the code I sent.

The only setback I see is that you want to see the milliseconds, which would mean running an interval function 1000 times per second.

Hi David

I guess 'easier' is relative I'm a bit of a JavaScript newbie, so struggling to translate your code into a digital version.

Any pointers?

Thanks

Chris

Hi David

Just tested this and it looks great - I may have a play with the code to make it only display tenths of a second in hindsight, but many thanks for taking the time to put this together!

Thanks again,

Chris
