Do you think it would be enough to increase the font size and maybe also color it red,green or blue and open the about screen / options automatically on first launch? Thing is.. I don't want to overload the misc tab tongue otherwise it gets lost again... It's nice to have it inside the about screen if you know it tongue

Yes, although just larger, bold, black would be OK.

This isn't a huge issue.  I am a nitpicker (read: engineer). smiley

the about page is the first page to popup if you open options tongue
That doesn't mean we READ it.
(I've seldom found useful info there on most programs except when I needed to get a version number.)

did you know about the "Run at startup" option you'll find at the about screen?
Obviously not.  Now I do.  smiley

Never have seen such on an "About" page.  
May I suggest being on the Miscellaneous tab?  
Not a biggie though.

Another stumble I encountered at first is that, for T-clock to run on every boot, I had to manually create a shortcut in the correct startup folder to the clock.exe in the right folder (32 or 64 bit).

Is that normal?

Question: the three selectable black colors that have writing in them...what are the differences between them?
Oops.. didn't see that question... those are system colors... means they aren't fix but dynamic depending on your Windows style. (on 8 you might only notice that when changing to a high contrast theme or using a custom made theme)

Still a bit confused; don't see how a 'black' can be a dynamic color--or do you mean sometimes it is NOT black as the system decides it "shouldn't be?"

Power, at one point you advocate for fewer clicks, then you say to put some things in a submenu--which would add clicks!
7  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: September 11, 2014, 02:20:31 PM
Wait... The MORE button in that window lets you run it anyway.  I did and it seems to install  AND I HAVE BLACK TEXT....YAHOO!

LATER--worked with it a few minutes and I LOVE it.  Now can see it in Windows 8.1.

Installed in Windows 8.1, and got a block from the OS.. See image

...What color does your windows clock use btw? Is it still white or also black?

Black and tiny size.  But that is due to theme I installed (uxstyle and employing Aero 8.1 Rounded Default from deviantart)...to eliminate the WHITE font hard coded by Redmond in Windows 8.1. with no inside OS way to change it. Not sure the size is style controlled--if it is, I sure wish I knew how to edit it.

That's the two problems even using the style: Although I got the black color, all taskbar font is balck but tiny, and I cannot see the date part unless I use the double height taskbar; no to that.
10  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: July 23, 2014, 08:28:09 AM
Ah, thanks very much for that explanation.
Can I bribe you to put it way high on your todo list (I really miss having the date there)?  smiley

From a personal standpoint, I will be happy so long as I can have black and get it to be large (eyesight issues).

Oh, an aside...I found that you can do some adjusting within Windows 8.1 in the Region>Additional Settings>[Time | Date]. Wonder who put time adjustments in the 'Region' dialog?

But time and date are completely separate--you cannot make the display into one string.  I tried to do "d-MM, h:mm tt" in the time spec (since with the narrow bar, all I see is the time showing), but it would not accept date specs in the Time tab.  So all I can get is the time to show, due to having the narrowest taskbar, which causes date to not show.  It is in unreadably small size anyway, so even if date were there naturally, I could not read it easily.

I also wonder if they copied Tclock.  I wonder because of the "tt' to include AM pr PM.  "tt" does not seem to be an intuitive variable spec.

Lastly, where do I watch to see when the modified version is posted?

Have used T-clock on Windows 7 and I think back on Vista.  I just put it on a Windows 8.1 machine and am having some difficulty.

I state right up front that I have Classic Shell and a theme in to make the laptop usable--the theme required to change taskbar text from white (completely unreadable for me) to black.

My Tclock problem is that it does not even show (though it is there unless I select white or a few of the other colors--which all render in white.  Black, maroon, etc produce NOTHING at all--but right click brings up tclock menu--so it is there, just not showing.

I love tclock (donated to Stoic and Donation Coder when I first started using it), but cannot see the white rendering (taskbar is a light grayish blue), and that is all I can get.

Atch shows the lower right corner.

yeah but how often are you going to ever want to change that value -- personally i dont know why everyone wouldnt stick to 1 yr view.
Wow.  Don't assume that however you use it is how other people want it.

I need only the current month 99% of time.  But my proposal would not eliminate setting a full year as your one click initial view.  Sorry if that was not clear.  

You could set whatever you want as your normal initial view just as now.  All I was proposing was being able to pop into either of the 1-yr views without having to go into options and basicall set a new standard view...switching would be right there in the calendar.

I also see nothing wrong with putting buttons in every calendar to do an instant switch to one of the other views.
13  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: August 05, 2011, 02:19:11 PM
1, 3, & 12 month views are available for the calendar via the Miscellaneous tab.

OK, just thinking out loud here...

One possible setup: click on text calendar shows current month (like now when set to one month).  It has two new buttons on it--one brings up a larger 1-year calendar with January of current year in upper left; other button brings up 1-year calendar with current month in upper left.  The 1-yr view also should have the button to change to whichever view (Jan start or current mo. start) is not showing.

This would be way fewer steps than having to go into properties, change tab, change option, exit, open calendar...many steps.

Was the problem of not closing on lose focus ever solved?

It would be nice if you could have a option to display that one instead of the T-Clock one.
yeah actually it would be nice if we had some options for calendar, like to display t-clock one, windows one, or a custom exe.

I don't understand.  If you want to display the Windows clock, why do you install this?
16  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: May 12, 2011, 07:00:39 PM
I said to close by clicking the clock (that's also how I open it), not clicking the calendar.
Also, the lose focus does work. It's that the calendar sometimes doesn't have the focus to begin with.

Indeed you did.  Sorry.
17  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: May 11, 2011, 10:15:24 AM
The "Close Calendar on Lose Focus" doesn't always work, as the calendar sometimes is already out of focus when opened.
Is it possible to close it by clicking the clock, as that's already how I open it. Hitting the large clock positioned at the screen's edge is easier than the "X" button with a touchpad =).  Or just fix the focus thing, although I sometimes want it to stay open while I focus other windows...

It won't work to close by click-in-calendar because sometimes you have to click the "next-month" button.  Solution is to find why lose focus is not working.

That is overreacting imo.
There is no "general thinking here" here on this subject as well as many subjects.
I said "...out of sync with SOME of the general thinking here."

"That is overreacting imo."
Clearly, you have no problem with someone, without your permission, installing software on your machine, or sending off data about you or your machine--as does OpenCandy.

I do have a problem with that--a BIG problem with that.

You are OpenCandy's dream come true.
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What the hell is OpenCandy? on: April 10, 2011, 03:46:07 PM
I guess I'll just bid adieu.  It is clear I am very out of sync with some of the general thinking here...in that I cannot see how anyone would conclude that this "method" has any coat of acceptability whatsoever.

I say that because, to me, if anything is being done (installed or info sent to wherever) before the user has a chance to prevent it, that unquestionably (in my opinion) constitutes unacceptable behavior.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What the hell is OpenCandy? on: April 10, 2011, 02:53:50 PM
All those words, and no answer to the questions I posed.  Only three words required... pick one (truthful answer) from each line (they align with my 3 questions):
1. yes no
2. yes no
3. yes no
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What the hell is OpenCandy? on: April 10, 2011, 02:28:26 PM
Does it install ANYTHING (part of itself or whatever it is "offering" or anything else) without user choice to deny?

Does it send ANY info "home to mama" [I add now "or ANYWHERE"] without a user choice to deny same.

Is user option to NOT do either of the above presented clearly and obviously BEFORE it is done?

What are the answers to these questions?  And they are yes or no questions.  They are simple and direct.  And the answers immediately solve the riddle of whether OpenCandy is acceptable or not.  I get the feeling no one wants to answer them truthfully.
22  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: April 09, 2011, 06:49:28 PM
but there is no doubt in my mind that it is due to the option being ON in T-Clock.
I'm inclined to agree at this point. Can you think of anything that may be unique about your config? Any security or system management software that it may be interacting badly with?

Unfortunately, I run a very secure machine AND have lots of productivity tools on it.  For TSRs, there are

WinPatrol
MSE
Superantispyware Pro
Comodo FW
Carbonite
Dropbox
PhraseExpress
Bitmeter
Stickpad
Windows Sidebar
Yahoo gadgets
Camera Assistant sfw (came with laptop)
xneat Windows manager
Desktop media (puts shortcut on desktop for any connected drive)
Maxtor Status Icon (a connectivity app to get to a NAS)
Free Download Manager (not usually running but just notices it WAS set to load on startup; a recent update must have turned that back on)

There may be some others that don't have an icon in system tray.

This is not a huge issue for me; I just set 'monitor off' to 10 minutes in power options, and tha is OK.
23  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: April 09, 2011, 01:46:17 PM
Sir, regarding the previous posts about the "Locking workstation turns off monitor" strangeness I discussed...

since then, as stated, I had that checked OFF, not turned on.  Have had no issues.

This morning I turned it back on.  My FIRST attempt to go into lock, it did lock, but instantly, the blink monitor on and off began.  I was able to log back in (the on/off of monitor seemed to have no effect on typing the password in).  The blinking continued after back into logged in mode.  I did a reboot, and once in, unchecked the option.

This may be something that is happening only in MY particular configuration, but there is no doubt in my mind that it is due to the option being ON in T-Clock.

This is ever so simple...

Does it install ANYTHING (part of itself or whatever it is "offering" or anything else) without user choice to deny?

Does it send ANY info "home to mama" without a user choice to deny same.

Is user option to NOT do either of the above presented clearly and obviously BEFORE it is done?

If the answers to those are other than NO, NO, YES, then OpenCandy is undeniably evil.

LATER- can the font in the balloon be changed?  I need it bigger/darker.

Currently no, but I'll think about it (my to-do list is getting a bit out of hand... smiley).

Dang those users; always wanting more and more! smiley
