real time, timer/counter


hello! Good afternoon,

i want to create a timer, wherein when I push the switch to turn on the green light, the timer starts and then stops after when the switch is turned off . then when I turn it on again, the timer should reset again to zero, and start a new timer . is this possible?

thank you so much!

You can achieve this by using Javascript and CSS in your dashboard.

Check below dashboard code.

<dashboard script="timer.js" stylesheet="timer.css">
        <h2>Toggle Switch</h2>

        <label class="switch">
          <input type="checkbox" />
          <span class="slider round"></span>
        <div id="divCount" style="height: 1.5em; font-size: 2em; color: red;"></div>


require(["jquery", "splunkjs/mvc", "splunkjs/mvc/simplexml/ready!"], function($, mvc) {

    var count = 0;
    function Increament() {
        document.getElementById("divCount").innerHTML = "Timer: "+count;
    var myVar;

    $(document).ready(function () {
        var checkbox = document.querySelector('input[type="checkbox"]');

        checkbox.addEventListener('change', function () {
            if (checkbox.checked) {
              // do this
              myVar = setInterval(Increament, 1000);
            } else {
              // do that
              console.log('Not checked');
               count = 0;
               document.getElementById("divCount").innerHTML = "Timer: "+count;




.switch {
  position: relative;
  display: inline-block;
  width: 60px;
  height: 34px;

.switch input { 
  opacity: 0;
  width: 0;
  height: 0;

.slider {
  position: absolute;
  cursor: pointer;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  right: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  background-color: #ccc;
  -webkit-transition: .4s;
  transition: .4s;

.slider:before {
  position: absolute;
  content: "";
  height: 26px;
  width: 26px;
  left: 4px;
  bottom: 4px;
  background-color: white;
  -webkit-transition: .4s;
  transition: .4s;

input:checked + .slider {
  background-color: #2196F3;

input:focus + .slider {
  box-shadow: 0 0 1px #2196F3;

input:checked + .slider:before {
  -webkit-transform: translateX(26px);
  -ms-transform: translateX(26px);
  transform: translateX(26px);

/* Rounded sliders */
.slider.round {
  border-radius: 34px;

.slider.round:before {
  border-radius: 50%;

Please try and let me know if any issue.

That's not really the type of function Splunk offers.
Whilst I'm not saying that this can't be done, you probably shouldn't.

What's your use case?
