DateTime Docky for AmigaOS 4.x, is a plugin for the AmiDock toolbar system.
The project was originally started by Fredrik Wikstrom and updated by
Massimiliano Scarano (2011).

WARNING: FIRST BACKUP YOUR PREVIOUS 'DateTime.docky.xml' (located on same
         path as 'DateTime.docky'). Version 52.10 has internal changes in
         'DateTime.docky.xml' and it should take care of old->new XML.

This is an enhancement over DateTime Docky V52.10:
 - Added greek catalog (THX phantom)
 - Fixed rendering too many time chars showing garbage '[][]'
 - Added/Created CodeBench project file
 - Avoid duplicated reminder-dates
 - See 'History:' for more information

1. Two modes/options:
  a)Shell/CLI: COPY DateTime.docky(|.info) SYS:Utilities/Dockies/ CLONE
  b)Workbench: drag&drop DateTime.docky icon in SYS:Utilities/Dockies/
   NOTE: Your "original" icon and tooltypes will be overwritten.
2. Add docky to AmiDock toolbar system.
3. Copy <language>/DateTime_docky.catalog to LOCALE:Catalogs/<language>/
4. Not always necessary: Reboot (soft) your Workbench/System.

Docky settings can be changed by modifying the icon's tooltypes. An example
icon (tooltypes) is kindly provided by zzd10h (in Source drawer).
Currently these tooltypes are used by the docky:
AMPM             - Enables 12-hour mode (AM/PM)
DATEFMT=<n>      - Date format to show (defaults to Locale prefs.);
                   allowed values:
                              - DOS or dd-mmm-yy
                              - INT or yy-mmm-dd
                              - USA or mm-dd-yy
                              - CDN or dd-mm-yy
                              - ISO or yyyy-mm-dd

                   uses GUI prefs Text pen

                   to disable SHADOWCOLOR set it to 0ff0ff (ZERO ff ZERO ff)

                   "today" is a "special" day (default=00FFFF)

DOTSBLINK        - Enables dots blinking (HH:MM -> HH MM -> HH:MM)
SHOWSECS         - Show seconds in clock
LINES=<n>        - 1=only clock; 2=clock+date (defaults to clock+date+week)
HORIZONTAL       - Horizontal layout instead of default vertical/rows
HORIZGAP=<n>     - Space between clock+date+week in HORIZONTAL (default=10)

REMIND_ONCE      - Show only once the reminder
REMIND_TIME=<n>  - Time showing the reminder. NOTE: if you DON'T use SHOWSECS
                   or DOTSBLINK, time value results <n>*5 seconds (estimated)

Reminders window:
-RMB over docky, 'Reminders...' to edit ..erm..reminders!? ;-)
-ADD entry:
 1)Choose MONTH and insert DAY.
 2)Enter whatever TEXT you want in the textgadget and/or COMMAND in
   the 'Execute Command' string gadget.
   Cmd example: APPDIR:MultiView "<fullpath_to_file>" IMMEDIATE REPEAT
 3)Click [Add] to ADD entry.
 4)Click [Save] button or you will loose data added.
When MONTH & DAY matches present date, docky changes to MYDAYSCOLOR.
If you entered some TEXT and mouse pointer is over datetime.docky it
will popup a small window (reminder) with TEXT and stay REMIND_TIME
and/or if you entered a COMMAND it will be executed (only one time).
-REMOVE entry:
 1)Select entry and click [Remove].
 2)Click [Save] button or you will loose any modification.
