Basic example

Create default Countdown by adding countdown to a <MDBCountdown> component with a Countdown expiration date value. Add <MDBCountdownUnit> components and an property type with time unit to a child element to indicate which time units should be displayed inside Countdown.

        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { MDBCountdown, MDBCountdownUnit } from 'mdb-react-countdown';
    
            export default function App() {
              return (
                <MDBCountdown countdown='31 December 2022 23:59:59'>
                  <MDBCountdownUnit />
                  <MDBCountdownUnit type='hours' />
                  <MDBCountdownUnit type='minutes' />
                  <MDBCountdownUnit type='seconds' />
                </MDBCountdown>
              );
            }
          
        
    

Interval

Create interval that will reset timer every time initial countdown ends.

        
            
              import React, { useState } from 'react';
              import { MDBCountdown, MDBCountdownUnit } from 'mdb-react-countdown';
      
              export default function App() {
                const [defaultDate, setDefaultDate] = useState(new Date('5 November 2022 12:35'));

                const handleInterval = (date: any) => {
                  const newDate = new Date(date.getTime() + 60000);
                  setDefaultDate(newDate);
                };

                return (
                  <MDBCountdown countdown={defaultDate} onEnd={() => handleInterval(defaultDate)}>
                    <MDBCountdownUnit />
                    <MDBCountdownUnit type='hours' />
                    <MDBCountdownUnit type='minutes' />
                    <MDBCountdownUnit type='seconds' />
                  </MDBCountdown>
                );
              }
            
        
    

Label

Create label for each time unit by adding label property with a text of your choice.

        
            
              import React from 'react';
              import { MDBCountdown, MDBCountdownUnit } from 'mdb-react-countdown';
      
              export default function App() {
                return (
                  <MDBCountdown countdown='31 December 2022 23:59:59'>
                    <MDBCountdownUnit label='days' />
                    <MDBCountdownUnit label='hours' type='hours' />
                    <MDBCountdownUnit label='minutes' type='minutes' />
                    <MDBCountdownUnit label='seconds' type='seconds' />
                  </MDBCountdown>
                );
              }
            
        
    

Separator

Add separator to a <MDBCountdown> component to insert separator between each time unit.

Separator won't be visible for Countdown column position

        
            
              import React from 'react';
              import { MDBCountdown, MDBCountdownUnit } from 'mdb-react-countdown';
      
              export default function App() {
                return (
                  <MDBCountdown separator=':' countdown='31 December 2022 23:59:59'>
                    <MDBCountdownUnit />
                    <MDBCountdownUnit type='hours' />
                    <MDBCountdownUnit type='minutes' />
                    <MDBCountdownUnit type='seconds' />
                  </MDBCountdown>
                );
