How To Make Stop Watch App Using React.js

In this article, we will learn how to create Stop Watch in react-js.

We can create Stop Watch in ReactJS using the following approach. Our StopWatch will have the functionality of Start, Pause, Resume and Reset.

First of all, we have to create a react application.

  • npx create-react-app react-stop-watch

Using the Component:

  • Five State used in the stopwatch component.
    const [hours, setHours] = useState(0);
    const [minutes, setMinutes] = useState(0);
    const [seconds, setSeconds] = useState(0);
    const [milisec, setMilisec] = useState(0);
    const [state, setState] = useState(false);

    let timer;

    useEffect(() => {
        if (state) {
            timer = setInterval(() => {
                setMilisec((prevState) => prevState + 1)
            }, 10);
        } else if (!state) {
            clearInterval(timer)
        }
        return () => clearInterval(timer);
    }, [state])
  • Stop-watch Start, Stop, Reset button function:
    const start = () => {
        setState(true);
    }

    const pause = () => {
        clearInterval(timer);
        setState(false)
    }

    const reset = () => {
        setHours(0);
        setMinutes(0);
        setSeconds(0);
        setMilisec(0);
        setState(false)
    }
    if (milisec === 99) {
        setSeconds((prevState) => prevState + 1)
        setMilisec(0)
    }
    if (seconds === 60) {
        setMinutes((prevstate) => prevstate + 1);
        setSeconds(0);
    }
    if (minutes === 60) {
        setHours((prevstate) => prevstate + 1);
        setMinutes(0);
    }

My App.js will look like this

import React, { useEffect, useState } from 'react'

const App = () => {

    const [hours, setHours] = useState(0);
    const [minutes, setMinutes] = useState(0);
    const [seconds, setSeconds] = useState(0);
    const [milisec, setMilisec] = useState(0);
    const [state, setState] = useState(false);

    let timer;

    useEffect(() => {
        if (state) {
            timer = setInterval(() => {
                setMilisec((prevState) => prevState + 1)
            }, 10);
        } else if (!state) {
            clearInterval(timer)
        }
        return () => clearInterval(timer);
    }, [state])

    const start = () => {
        setState(true);
    }

    const pause = () => {
        clearInterval(timer);
        setState(false)
    }

    const reset = () => {
        setHours(0);
        setMinutes(0);
        setSeconds(0);
        setMilisec(0);
        setState(false)
    }

    if (milisec === 99) {
        setSeconds((prevState) => prevState + 1)
        setMilisec(0)
    }

    if (seconds === 60) {
        setMinutes((prevstate) => prevstate + 1);
        setSeconds(0);
    }
    if (minutes === 60) {
        setHours((prevstate) => prevstate + 1);
        setMinutes(0);
    }


    return (
        <div className="container">
            <div className="time">
                <span className="minute">
                    {hours < 10 ? "0" + hours : hours}
                </span>
                <span>:</span>
                <span className="minute">
                    {minutes < 10 ? "0" + minutes : minutes}
                </span>
                <span>:</span>
                <span className="second">
                    {seconds < 10 ? "0" + seconds : seconds}
                </span>
                <span>:</span>
                <span className="second">
                    {milisec < 10 ? "0" + milisec : milisec}
                </span>
            </div>

            <div className="buttons">
                <button onClick={start} className="start">
                    Start
                </button>
                <button onClick={pause} className="pause">
                    Pause
                </button>
                <button onClick={reset} className="reset">
                    Reset
                </button>
            </div>
        </div>
    )
}

export default App
