ummm soo where can I get it??
gameguy: I think you were right, I fixed that real quick
Razorwing: You probably don't have the .NET framework 1.1 or above, which this uses
Also, the skinning thing should work for all themes, but the image needs to be a Windows .bmp . The skins aren't hard-coded or anything. As for making it self-modify... Humn, bitmap.FromResource() exists, I'll see if I have time.

Here we have a basic Longhorn-style tray clock.
LonghornClock, download here
http://webdisk.berke...hrawn/long3.gif http://webdisk.berke...hrawn/long1.gif http://webdisk.berke...hrawn/long2.gif
**Run clockConfig.exe to select a skin, before you run LonghornClock
**Right-click the clock to make it disappear for 3 seconds, so you can access the real system clock and any of its functions.
**Double-click the clock to make it exit.
There are a few more points in Release Notes.txt in the zip file. Please look at that before you ask any questions.
It's using VB.NET as I couldn't get ClearType with VB6. As a result, it's a memory hog but leak-free and easy on the processor.
Questions? Comments? Feature-Requests? Bugs? This is meant to be really basic. I don't really like the windows API...

Please stop complaining about the memory usage. You have no idea how the .net framework manages memory. it reserves the memory until another app needs it then releases it.
13MB resources is too high. Can you shrink it down to 1-5MB with other languages like C or C++?

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.berke...nghornClock.zip
I am having problems using it.
