    I have cloned a sample of your form and replaced the embed code with an Iframe and it seems to work fine compared with embedding it using form source. Please view the sample here https://shots.jotform.com/jed/forms/Time%20Remaining.html.

    Please try the iframe method if it works for you and let us know the result.

    Thank you Jed,

    The form looks great. However, it is most important to have the COUNTDOWN clock working above the form. Is this not possible with Jotform? I've attached the countdown script. I would really like to know if it will  or won't work outside the Jotform script and just above the form. If it work, it'll be really terrific for us:)

    Could you look at this one more time? Greatly appreciated. Regards,

    Hello Joe,

    We do have a variety of timer widgets. Please take a look at here:

    Countdown :  http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/countdown 

    Timer : http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/timer 

    Fancy Timer :  http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/fancy_timer 


    If the above widgets does not solve your purpose, here are the steps you should follow to embed your JotForm's source code in an iFrame :

    1. Download your form's source code and add the custom JavaScript code you have for counter.

    2. Open your HTML form in browser and see if it is working as expected.

    3. Upload this html file in your own server and grab the URL of the html file .

    4. Paste the following iFrame code in your webpage where you want to display your form:

    <iframe id="JotFormIFrame" onload="window.parent.scrollTo(0,0)" allowtransparency="true" src="XXXXX" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:100%; border:none;" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    4. Replace the "XXXXX" in the above iFrame code with the html file URL you saved in step #3 above.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
