So, I am a Pretty seasoned Novice at scripting and coding. How ever I have developed some health issues and have forgotten ALOT! I have been working on a website (taking my time).....  One of the main factors on my website depend on timers/countdowns... I am going with HTML5 and JS. Below is the part I am having probs with, I know it is correct, but for some reason it is not. I have been spending days trying to finger it out. NO LUCK!  Any Help would be greatly appreciated.


function ShowTimes() 
var now = new Date();
  var hrs = 20-now.getHours();
  var mins = 59-now.getMinutes();
  var secs = 59-now.getSeconds();
  var str = '';
----------------------------------------below is where the prob comes in, seems to be breaking the script..
 if(secs == 0){
if(mins == 0){
timeField.innerHTML = 'Time's up!';
                                        alert('Time's up');
      str += '<br>'+hrs+' hours '+mins+' minutes '+secs+' seconds';
             document.getElementById('countdown').innerHTML = str;
            document.getElementById("hrs").innerHTML = ("0"+hrs).slice(-2);
            document.getElementById("mins").innerHTML = ("0"+mins).slice(-2);
            document.getElementById("secs").innerHTML = ("0"+secs).slice(-2);
I have tried every thing possible to no avail.. Am I missing a { } or ; or what?

This looks like a code fragment, not the full JS code.


if this is a code fragment, the only way to figure out your problem is to have the whole thing, or put it in a fiddle (http://jsfiddle.net)
