JavaScript: Create a clock and display the time in each second

JavaScript Object: Exercise-8 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to create a Clock.
Note: The output will come every second.
Expected Console Output:
"14:37:42"
"14:37:43"
"14:37:44"
"14:37:45"
"14:37:46"
"14:37:47"

Sample Solution: -

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <html>
  <head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>Create a clock and display the time in each second </title>
  </head>
  <body>
</body>
  </html>
  

JavaScript Code:

function my_Clock() 
  {
  this.cur_date = new Date();
  this.hours = this.cur_date.getHours();
  this.minutes = this.cur_date.getMinutes();
  this.seconds = this.cur_date.getSeconds();
  }
my_Clock.prototype.run = function ()
  {
  setInterval(this.update.bind(this), 1000);
  };
my_Clock.prototype.update = function () 
  {
  this.updateTime(1);
  console.log(this.hours + ":" + this.minutes + ":" + this.seconds);
  };
my_Clock.prototype.updateTime = function (secs) 
  {
  this.seconds+= secs;
 if (this.seconds >= 60)
  {
  this.minutes++;
  this.seconds= 0;
  }
 if (this.minutes >= 60)
  {
  this.hours++;
  this.minutes=0;
  }
if (this.hours >= 24)
  {
  this.hours = 0;
  }
};
var clock = new my_Clock();
  clock.run();
  

Sample Output:

14:45:52
14:45:53
14:45:54
14:45:55
14:45:56
14:45:57
14:45:58
14:45:59
14:46:0

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

How to remove a specific item from an array?

Find the index of the array element you want to remove using indexOf, and then remove that index with splice.

The splice() method changes the contents of an array by removing existing elements and/or adding new elements.

const array = [2, 5, 9];

console.log(array);

const index = array.indexOf(5);
if (index > -1) {
  array.splice(index, 1);
}

// array = [2, 9]
console.log(array);

The second parameter of splice is the number of elements to remove. Note that splice modifies the array in place and returns a new array containing the elements that have been removed.

For the reason of completeness, here are functions. The first function removes only a single occurrence (i.e. removing the first match of 5 from [2,5,9,1,5,8,5]), while the second function removes all occurrences:

function removeItemOnce(arr, value) {
  var index = arr.indexOf(value);
  if (index > -1) {
    arr.splice(index, 1);
  }
  return arr;
}

function removeItemAll(arr, value) {
  var i = 0;
  while (i < arr.length) {
    if (arr[i] === value) {
      arr.splice(i, 1);
    } else {
      ++i;
    }
  }
  return arr;
}
//Usage
console.log(removeItemOnce([2,5,9,1,5,8,5], 5))
console.log(removeItemAll([2,5,9,1,5,8,5], 5))
