Longhorn-style system tray clock

93 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

new release, version .75:

Download Here

-It still depends on the .NET framework, but memory usage is around 1/3rd what it used to be.

-More importantly, the time will remain correct on resume from standby or hibernate.

Also, I'm sorry, the download link for Luna VX does not work for me... and making a skin is pretty easy.

The .NET Framework is found on Windows Update under "Reccomended Updates"

Woah, it looks like your tray has less space for the clock than most systems do... Neither my desktop or Tablet PC is like that, but if the issue is widespread, I'll have to modify the program to compensate. How does the old version work for you? You can get it here: OLD VERSION http://webdisk.berkeley.edu/~thrawn/LonghornClock.zip

Thanks for the screenshot, BTW

This is caused by the fact that your regional settings are not set to the default, English-US. You don't need to change the region, just one setting.

To correct do the following:

1. Open the control panel (Please use Category View), and hit "Date, Time, ... Options", then select "Change the format of Numbers, Dates, and Times"

2. Press the "Customize" button next to the drop-down that displays your language.

3. Under the "Time" tab, change "Time format" to "h:mm:ss tt" or "hh:mm:ss tt"

That'll fix it :)

odd, i did save the file in bmp... i am trying to do one for chosenos and tiskin... but no success? (actually, i haven't really spend time trying to do it, attempted once, no work... then i had too much other stuff to do... haha)

ok, just kidding... i figured it out. it's kinda stupid really... the extension bitmap has to be all lower cased. BMP will not work... bmp will.

install the damn .net framework 1.1. God, as a developer of a .net based app, I hate it when people don't read the listed requirements.

Mmm thanks to whoever made that lunavx skin, although the skin is nice, it doesn't match the taskbar properly.

I have no problems with my taskbar. :huh:

If you using the double hight taskbar or a different screen resolution (I'm using 1024 x 768), you will have to make the skin to match.

I just made the skin for my use and thought I would post it here. ;)
