hi everyone,i am new to the javascript .i have started writing one function and i need your help in that.

I have to write the function .

function logtable(actionname,starttime)
1) i am getting two parameters actionname, i have to make a table where parameters represents the 3 columns.i have to append the data in the table .
2)the o/p will be like this(tabular format):

actionname starttime delta

start 0
open 50
save 20

delta is the difference between the two consecutive starttime.
i have to append each incomming record in the next row(as i have shown in the o/p) .how should i do this(how to create table and append record to that and how to subtarct two strings(starttime) to get delta??

thank you.

hi everybody....i cud manage to write values in the table but i donot know how to calculate difference between two consecutive starttime values
delta = startime2 -starttime1 i.e. difference between two consecutive starttimes....hence delta in first row will be zero and then it will have value.

function PrtRow(action, starttime) {

var delta = starttime;
newcol = "/TD TD ALIGN='RIGHT'>";
document.write("TR TD ", action, newcol, starttime, newcol,
delta, "</TD></TR>\n")

var temp1 = starttime;
PrtRow("start", 11);
PrtRow("open", 12);
PrtRow("save", 13);
PrtRow("upload", 14);
PrtRow("new", 15);
PrtRow("upload", 16);
