RCube, this update is great, let me annoy you with some extra suggestions

(people always ask for more :) ) :

- calendar panel transparency setting (?slider ?counter)

- calendar panel background color setting

- calendar CurrentDay highlight color and shape (oval, rectangle, circle, ring) selection

- calendar font setting (can be messy, restrictions may apply)

- week begins with Sunday/Monday choice option

Anyway, u rule, man...

It all depends. If I implement skin then we won't need any of those. But if I see skin is a big resource hog, then I'll keep the calendar the way it is and add those features you just listed.

But My next task is alarm and events. :p

Hey, you know what you really need? An update tab where you click the update button and it'll check and see if you have the latest version or not and if you don't, automatically (by option) download and install the newer version.

Not sure how you do that, but I'm sure someone does. :yes:

Edit:What I meant by "by option" was that there could be an option to just tell you your's is old, or to automatically download it. Maybe have one to automatically check for updates too..

I don't mean to offend you in anyway, but I think you should use the calendar lay out Stacker made. He had the perfect style, maybe a little more spacings :p

Well, if I am the Stacker you are referring to, I made some reminder mockups, but hell, why not make a calendar revamp as well :)

Here they go together.

Upper is the calendar popup,

lower the reminder (just to rerun from my older post).

Notice the rearranged calendar month flipper arrows - I think it is way easier to flip fwd/back if they are closer. (an idea from the NeXTSTEP GUI scrollbar arrow layout).

These are just ideas and suggestions, not critics or offence.

For compare reference, here is my earlier suggestions for a future reminder popup design

(which feature is being developed by RCube if I am right):

Hey, the Calendar function is implemented, just click on the LClock once to toggle display it.

The reminder function is not implemented yet, AFAIK.

(The images posted by me are just visual design proposals, not actual screen shots.)

The calendar only pops up when the taskbar is at the bottom of the screen. My taskbar is at the top of the screen, and no calendar shows up; yet when I move it to the bottom, bingo there's the calendar. Perhaps that would be considered a bug? :)

Nice calender. Some suggestions for you rcube:

- The ability to right click the click for Properties so it can take me to the Lclock control panel without having to go to Windows's Control Panel.

- The ability to customzise the calender. Yes I know you are just developing it, but maybe after all you have developed to your liking.

- A zipped version of the installation files. I dislike installers and prefer zipped versions.

:)

Customization depends on skinning and is in focus by RCube as far as he told it before.

Until he implement an additional "LClock Settings" command in the trayclock context menu, here is a tip to avoid Control Panel invocation:

- open Control Panel

- drag the LClock icon with right mouse button to your desktop and release

- in the popup menu, click "Create shortcut here"

- switch on the Quick Launch toolbar on the Taskbar (if it is not on yet)

- drag (move) the created shortcut on the Quick Launch toolbar

Now you can click on this any time and presto! the LClock setting panel opens.

(an example of this solution can be observed in the images I posted earlier: the round orange clock icon in my Quick Launch is actually the shortcut for the LClock Control Panel applet.)
