  27. <?php include'convert.php'?>

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will convert the minute into day value when the button is clicked. To make this just copy and write these block of codes below inside the text editor, then save it as convert.php

  1. <?php
  2. if(ISSET($_POST['convert'])){
  3. $minute = $_POST['minute'];
  4. $cal = $minute*60;
  5. $toDay = $cal/(24*3600);
  6. $day = round($toDay, 2);
  7.  
  8. echo "<center><label style='font-size:20px;'>There are <span class='text-primary' style='font-size:27px;'>".$minute."mins</span> in <span class='text-primary' style='font-size:27px;'>".$day." day</span></label></center>";
