how to show time by using timers and schedulers?

hii,

i want to show the time by using timers and schedulers. For eg.

1) i have one program which starts from 10am to 11am. So, if there are 1hr or half an hour or 15 min remaining to        start the program how i show it by using timers and schedulers? 

2) when the program is started i want to show or display "ON".

3) When the program is end i want to show or display "OFF".

please suggest the procedure or solution for the same.

please refer the below screenshot for an example

Above requirement  does not require schedulers/timers since it involved only the mashup related data update

  1. Create Property in thing or use data table to get the start and end time of the Program. Create a service to find the difference of current time and start time and show the minutes count in the mashup. Trigger this service in mashup using refresh widget according to your requirement. Ex : If the time needs to decrement minutes, then set refresh time as 60 seconds
  2. Write a service to handle following conditions
    1. if the current time is  within start and end time , result : ON
    2. if current time is greater than or equal to end time ; result : OFF
