@Ghostwalker,

It seems that there are a few problems with your iTime.ini file. I also get the next/prev buttons & their corresponding hotspots not configured properly, the side effect is that clicking on them would not trigger the scroll. This is the same ini file with modifications that let them work properly (tested on both WinXP & Vista).

BTW, how do you insert that code frame instead of my big chunk?

@Lita,

you can change the font to whatever font you have already installed under windows from the skin settings tab in the configuration dialog box. Just remember that there is a font configuration for each clock mode, you just need to select any element from each clock mode (you'll see the preview changes to that mode), and configure the font as needed.

I have an american vista version but with polish programmers language so things like f.eg date I have in polish. But I know what's the problem - I had set the size font 16 and the date is ok only in 12... but it's to small a bit :(

Link to post

@Lita,

Date is a textarea so you can change it's dimensions to accomodate a larger font. In my case I had to do it since I'm using an spanish localized version of windows, week days in spanish tend to be a lot larger than in english.

BTW, you mentioned that you have an english localized version of vista configured for polish regional settings... again, could you please configure it back to english temporarily just to check if the AM/PM alarm indicator gets shown?

Smaky I tried your ini file but still no go. I even pulled the docklet out of the dock and re added it.

That was why I was wondering what language she was using.

@Ghostwalker,

Do not take the docklet out, just close OD and then delete the iTheme.ini file from C:\Documents and Settings\[your user]\Local Configuration\Program Data\DigitalClockDocklet\ (well at least I think that is was something like that the path to the file under XP) otherwise it will read the already created file from there.

This way it should create a new iTheme.ini file with default settings... which correspond to the previous up/down arrow skin. After that, could you take a couple of snapshots from the skins settings for the "Alarms next hot spot" and "Alarms previous hot spot" to try to figure out this.

The problem is that I set this language during initial load of vista and now I have only two choices - polish and polish programmers. But as far as I noticed those settings goes to clickboard so I have polish letters... the whole system is in english though.

BTW thank you for the tip about date and day of the week, now I have it like this and it' good :)

'couse monday for eg. in polish is poniedzialek so it's very long word :D and I need a space for it.

And I figured out the "Next" button problem (to much on wright) thans to the date setting ;)

@Lita,

Go to control pannel->regional and language options then select the "Formats" tab and choose "English (United States)"... then check again to see if the AM/PM thing is shown.

yeap, that was it :) So now, can I leave it as an US english and localization USA? I checked and I still have polish programmers keyboard so it's ok

Here is the next button and the next hotspot and I have 6 alarms(tests) but still not clickable.

I can get screenshts of the prvious if you like but if we can get one working the other should follow.

Smaky I moved the next hotspot down to here and it works, I also noticed when I hover over the docklet the text that appears above the docklet does not show until I get past the next and previous buttons same for world clock.

@Ghostwalker,

One more thing... what size is your docklet configured when maximized?

From your snapshots I noticed there are two for the "Alarms next hot spot"... one properly positioned over the next button and the second among the alarms itself... if that's a test, scrolling should occur when clicking there.

@Lita,

Well, at least I know where to look at... I'll switch to polish and then see what happens... if I'm able to reproduce the problem maybe I'll find a solution that will not require you to change the windows settings. I'll post my findings.

heh next one --> the next and back buttons on Alarm and WorldClock don't work for me eather... I didn't notice before 'couse I didn't have so many cities and alarms. Just added few minutes ago to check it out.

@Lita,

I think that now I see why this is happening... when I changed to Polish regional settings there is no AM/PM format... as if in poland no such thing exists... I don't know for sure... but it seems that the only way to solve this is by either changing to a format that will show AM/PM symbols, or adding them to the regional settings configuration for polish.

@Ghostwalker,

48 minimum and 192 maximum

You hit the nail on the head if I lower it then it works fine.

Seems it quits working at 165

Sorry but I am not following you.

I set my magnification back to 192 and I found the click much lower than were it should be almost to the first alarm button.

Mhmmm this is bad... because that information is being provided by ObjectDock itself, there's anything I can do about it... I had the hope that my code had some bug, but if the problem lies on the information being delivered by the dock engine, the solution must come from there.

Are you using the very last version of OD?

Link to post

Please update to 1.90 Build 536 if you are using OD, or 1.90 Build 537u if using OD+... I haven't tested with previous versons but I think that should be related to it.

Edit:

Another small update v0.2.0.4m, this one includes:

+ A fix for Lita's problem with regional settings which does not support AM/PM indicators. Now when configured to show 24 hours format (this not setting the Show 12 hour format option under General settings), the Alarm dialog box will use 24 hour format for setting the alarms. This way when using polish regional settings it would be possible to configure the alarm properly.

+ MetalArend's requested hierarchy for skin elements. Skin settings includes a "Clock mode" combo to select the desired clock mode to modify, I have re-arranged some controls in order to make it easier to understand what you are configuring (hopefully).

Well... one less problem to deal with.

With this I think we have taken care of the two major bugs that prevented the docklet from working properly (at least the two that were reported so far).

What do you think I should place my efforts next.... just to remember.

- Reported bugs solved (or a solution found) - the alarms configuration AM/PM issue & scrolling not working.

- Skin changes & suggestions applied (merged digits & backgrounds, added clock modes hierarchy to the skin configuration tab)... still waiting for your feedback on this.

- Clock mode change slowliness solved (agin, waiting for feedback on this too).

Well... I think that's it. Were to go from here...

- Optimize code & search for memory leaks.

- Add support for MP3 for audible alarms.

- Make alarms reminder fancier.

- Implement snooze funtionality.

- Any other suggestion you may have...

I for one do like the changes here although upgrading the dock I noticed the magnification is even greater so there are some things I'm going to try and clean up in the skin images to make it look more crisp same for the task docklet icon it looks blurry in the dock.

- The mp3 support would be great you could wake to your favorite song.

- Where to put a snooze button hmmm...

- Make alarms reminder fancier. (Skinnable maybe?)

Still checking all your docklets with the upgrade so far only one that I have problems with is the RSS docklet but we will wait on that one.
