You may configure the docklet to optionally show:
- Show/hide Seconds
- Show/hide Current Date (use the Windows locale)
- Show/hide Current Day of Week (uses the Windows locale)
- Use 12/24 Hour format for time display
The previous options may also be set directly from the left-button context menu.
The docklet is still under development, it does not have a lot of functionallity yet. I have thought about adding support for alarms or a stopwatch.
The Docklet supports stopwatch mode. Clicking on the stopwatch icon toggles stopwatch mode and lets start/pause/stop & reset the counter.
It is possible to start the counter and return to clock mode, the count will continue in the background.
+ Added options to configure font, color & size of text to support an upcoming skin by Ghostwalker (take a look at the preview).
+ Fixed :ome configuration dialog bugs that prevented to swith the skin.
+ A new version of this docklet is available. The new version includes support for easier and more complete skinning, letting you configure the in-docklet position and region for the elements of the clock (digits, buttons, hot-spots, etc.) as well for the stopwatch. It also lets you backup & restore skin settings for later reuse or sharing.
+ Meged digits sets on a single image, merged background on a single image.
+ Modified the mode switching code to provide faster update times.
+ Added even/odd highlights to alarms & world clock modes in order to provide visual feedback while scrolling among configured alarms & clocks.
+ Modified alarms configuration dialog to support introducing alarms when 24 hour format is set.
+ Modified the skins settings tab to include a clock mode selector. Hopefully this will make it easier for skinners to understand what elements they are working with.
+ Added support for playing MP3 & WAV files when an alarm is fired. Two additional alarms-related options where incorporated: Play media file continuously when the reminder is shown and keep reminders windows on top. (I have conducted very few testing with this... many bugs may be present)
+ On the skin settings tab the preview will correspond to the currently selectd clock mode in the docklet.
+ Incorporated latest Ghostwalker's skin (as of today of course).
+ Added options to add alarms & world clock directly from the docklet context menu.
Update 05/29/209 (daytime ):
+ Fixed some bugs related to the sound player/reminders. It now should work better when multiple alarms are fired.
Update 05/29/2009 (night - again ):
+ Added code to check current locale settings to disable 12 hour format option when there are no AM/PM indicators available.
+ Implemented snooze functionallity for Alarm reminders.
+ Added options to change clock mode via the context menu.
+ Implemented double-click for alarms/world clocks lists in the configuration dialogs.
+ Implemented Insert/Enter/Delete for alarms/world clocks lists in the configuration dialogs. Select an Item an press the ENTER key to edit it or the DEL key to delete it. Pressing INSert key adds a new alarm/world clock.
+ Added requested Manage Alarms/World clocks menu items to the context menu.
+ Added option to remove the docklet from the context menu.
+ Reorganized the menu items to facilitate its usage.
+ Reorganized configuration dialog to accomodate lower resolution screens.
+ Modified world clock date format to respond to general settings options (Show date/show DoW).
+ Added an option to delete all saved skin, alarms & world clocks configuration files upon docklet deletion.
+ Added basic skin support for alarms reminders. Skin made by myself (it really sucks).
+ Fixed few assorted minor bugs.
+ Added support for per-pixel alpha skins (Modified previous skin by adding alpha channel effects).
+ Code optimizations and bug fixes. Added date format so you can configure it as needed.
+ Some bug fixes here and there, fixed worldclock to use updated wheaterchannel web service.
Note on MP3/WAV support: For now I decided to go with MCI API for sound playback... I'll wait for your feedback on stability and availability. BTW, I recently found I was able to select MP4 & AVI files.
Latest Alpha release v.0.2.0.5b attached to this post.
Please give it a try and send me your feedback & suggestions.
