First let's have a look at what is achieved: Once you click work center "Jerry count down", the count down is displayed with a small animation.

The steps to build this application are almost the same as Step by step to create Bar Chart in Webclient UI.

1. Create a new WebUI component with a view main.htm:

Paste the following source code for the created view:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<script src="count/jquery.lwtCountdown-1.0.js"></script>
<link rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" href="count/main.css"></link>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>Countdown demo</title>
<div id="container">
<h1>Jerry's count down demo</h1>
<h2 class="subtitle">Time left for year 2017</h2>

<div id="countdown_dashboard">
<div class="dash weeks_dash">
<span class="dash_title">weeks</span>
<div class="digit">0</div>
<div class="digit">0</div>

<div class="dash days_dash">
<span class="dash_title">days</span>
<div class="digit">0</div>
<div class="digit">0</div>

<div class="dash hours_dash">
<span class="dash_title">hours</span>
<div class="digit">0</div>
<div class="digit">0</div>

<div class="dash minutes_dash">
<span class="dash_title">minutes</span>
<div class="digit">0</div>
<div class="digit">0</div>

<div class="dash seconds_dash">
<span class="dash_title">seconds</span>
<div class="digit">0</div>
<div class="digit">0</div>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
targetDate: {
'day': 31,
'month': 11,
'year': 2017,
'hour': 23,
'min': 59,
'sec': 59

As you see I hard code the last second of year 2017 as the time to count down here, feel free to replace with your own date and time.

2. Go to tcode SE80, tab MIME Repository, create a new folder named count and import these nine files. You can download the files from my github.

3. Create a new work center and put the ui component into it.

Please find step by step about how to achieve it from this wiki page How to add an custom UI component into a new work center.
