Hi All,

I had a time field of minutes in input Text followed by an Image top image(greater then symbol) when i fire onmousedown event i need to call a function recursefunction() multiple times with some timeout and when i release the mouse i.e onmouseup recurcisvefunction() must be Stopped and also clear the Timeout.

My Html Code

My JavaScript Code looks like :

but onmousedown simply called only once similar to onclick i found no difference, Suggest me a Solution so that i can move in right path.
