Accessible Duration Picker In jQuery - Duration.js

A duration picker is a component that allows users to set an end date for an event or activity.

In this article, we'll see a lightweight jQuery duration picker plugin for selecting durations, such as time until a deadline passes, service interval durations, event occurrence times and much more.

Users can increment & decrement values by pressing up/down keys or by clicking the Up/Down buttons on the interface.

How to use it:

1. Download the plugin and load the following JS & CSS files.

<!-- jQuery -->
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>

<!-- jQuery Duration.js Plugin -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="duration.css" />
<script src="duration.js"></script>

2. Create a container to hold the duration picker.

<div id="example"></div>

3. Call the function on the container element to generate a default duration picker.


4. Set the display mode:

  • d: day
  • h: hour
  • m: minute
  • s: second

5. Set the step size for each slot:

  sInc: 1,
  mInc: 15,
  hInc: 1,
  dInc: 1,

6. Set the initial value in seconds:

  initVal: 0
