Great, thanks, just what I've been looking for!
Sleek and functional.

I had either accidently the old version 1.1 or you're faster uploading new versions than I'm downloading them :-) V1.2 works fine.

Make sure you're using v1.2 of the program, there shouldn't be any extra chars anymore.
Comment by: TSK ( 31 Jan 2011, 15:46File version: 1.2
I have 88 in place of seconds all the time and there's "empty" square between minutes and seconds instead of any meaningful character.

Yeah, that cool. Can you please send me your current version with that new options to kas1e@yandex.ru ?:) (i also can do little beta-test as well).

Indeed I've noticed a few shortcomings in the built-in DOS time functions, and locale configurability in general, so on my machine I use a home-made USA.country file to force it to use the date and time format I prefer :-)

As I want to keep the clock overhead down, I've only added the option to use HH:MM:SS or the local time format (whatever it may be for each country). Hopefully that will suit most people.

Wow nice tiny app !

The problem with locales, that its quite a mess for now in os4. For example i use fully english WB, but i have setuped something for russians (to be able to read web in russian). Maybe you can add tooltype, where use can setup showing of time as he want ? I.e. handle that %H %M %Q stuff and so on (so, user not need to thinking about what wrong/different with locales, because he easy can change looks of clock in the settings of program itself).
Comment by: AlexC ( 30 Jan 2011, 05:56File version: 1.1

Hmmm, I made the clock use the time format native to the user as set in his Prefs/Locale->Country (see LOCALE:Countries/#?.country) so it depends on your settings, for Russia it should be %H:%M (%M is 24h, %Q is 12h format).
I hadn't tested with other locales but now I see that I need to make the clock adjust the size of the text according to the locale in use and add an option to select short or long time format as the defaul locale format doesn't show the seconds.

1.2 coming shortly :-)

Awesome. Use it from the first day of release. Nice little, but very nice programm. Now when WB are active after reboot it start to be even better, but have a question: It is possible to choice from toolbox, some kind of "mode", which will tell to programm, draw time in the "xx:xx:xx" without PM/AM, but with seconds ? Old way of showing was better (imho). + in some countres those PM/AM stuff not so popular, and in russia for example 18:00 its better than 6:00. I checked readme, but looks like there is no mode to swith to other format ?

I send you my E-Mail-Adress through Amigaworld-net-PM. Please send me the Pubscreens-version
Comment by: AlexC ( 21 Oct 2010, 14:21File version: 1.0
You're right. It wasn't my intention, I switched from using a NewWindow structure to using standard tags but it doesn't have quite the same effect as a tag :-/
I'll add that to the list for V1.1 which so far contains pubscreens, 12 hours format, no seconds, show date and a few minor things.

A very small bug-report for the next release:

After boot, clock are the current application (but not WB), what a bit sad, because its good to boot aos , and have WB as active (because you can press amiga+e with no problem and type what yu need). But with clock in wbstartup, you should press by mouse button on the WB area, and then only type what you need (a bit annoy if you for example also want to use keyboard only). Not big deal of course, but maybe tooltype like "WBActive=TRUE" will give the solution :)

AlexC, you rock! This is exactly what I was after. Thanks.
Comment by: AlexC ( 20 Oct 2010, 07:59File version: 1.0
I've added a PubScreen tooltype for the next release but V1.1 won't be out for a while as I'd rather wait until I'm made enough changes before uploading a new version. I can email this one to you in the mean time.

Very nice!
Comment by: kas1e ( 19 Oct 2010, 15:38File version: 1.0
Cool little app, in wbstartup already :)

But if your new opened screen, its a full-screen game, or a demo ? (then clock will annoy pretty well). But from other side, maybe do some checking like "if screen was opened, check, if there a screenbar, if so, then spawn clock here too" and add tooltype for it.
Comment by: fingus ( 19 Oct 2010, 15:22File version: 1.0
Is it possible to place the clock on every Screenbar on every screen?
