These option give you abilty to design / styling timer on browser dirctly, since the timer is work depednace of Interval function, and second option is usfall when you need to get result to set default value in html, since js need some time to start timing.

example if we use getTemplateResult: 2 :

<div id="time-down-counter">30<span class="timeDownSperator">:</span>23<span class="timeDownSperator">:</span>59<span class="timeDownSperator">:</span>58</div>

Note: If you set template 1 or 2 the addSpanForResult & addSpanForEachNum will be change to true!.

  2. callBack: this option used to set script will be render after timer end. (Callback function)
