and thus easy distinction ...You basically just want similar colors as you've shown on the screen shot? May I ask why?...
The colours themselves are not as important as the levels of contrast between them when on a black background. It's a matter of ergonomics and visual perception. It's super easy on my eyes and easy for my peculiar eyesight to read all those items and easily discern them from one another - with that particular colour combo. There may well be other combos, but I settled with relief on that one as it was the first really decent one that I was able to generate after fiddling about with the settings in BetaClock.
By comparison, the standard Windows calendar display or the otherwise excellent calendar display in T-Clock are visually just too bland and indistinct for my eyes, and also, of course, the range of months displayed does not meet my requirements.

Latest build v2.3.2 seems to be running just fine on Windows 10 x86 b10074

Might want to consider running Streams.exe -s -d *.* on the release to eliminate [application blocked] security warning hassles. Granted I never did it either...but I should have.. :D

Stoic, I have lost track.  Is WhiteTigX or you or both doing the current work on this?
In post 1, I get a 404 for the link in the original post (actually Reply "0"; Reply 1 is the second post))
"www.StoicJoker.com/TClock for general info. Download is still only available here."

I must be dense.  In that post, there are so many "this is here and that is there" that I can never figure out where to get it.  The above indicates I failed again. :)

WhiteTigX has the project now...so his GitHub link (IFP) is where to get the latest build of T-Clock. My site has been down for a while now, as I've restructured/updated my lab and aren't really sure what if anything to do with the site.

Understand.

It confused me since it was you talking about the new version and the first post says
"Download is still only available here."

well.. 2.3.2 is still the current / old version ;)
Though I'll actually release a new version near the end of this month :P

With these fixed: https://github.com/W...Tiger/T-Clock/issues (I still need help with the "time update" one.. as it works on my Win 7 VM as it always did..)
Colorizable calendar, new "Wu" week format (should be in sync with U.S. Windows' week numbering) and some Coverity scan fixes :P

[...]
Might want to consider running Streams.exe -s -d *.* on the release to eliminate [application blocked] security warning hassles. [...]
uhm.. that must be done on each user installation^^ If you're talking about "untrusted app, do you want to run?" thingy.. that's added because it was downloaded from the internet and you've extracted it with Windows' build in extractor...
Those hidden streams are only added after a download and/or extraction... (using 7zip for extraction for example is pretty safe)
My current release of T-Clock Redux can always be found here, on my Github releases page

Would it be possible to incorporate the facility to display the date as the ordinal (28th) rather than the numeral (28) ?

I would suggest to just add the "th" yourself.. but guess you can't live with "1th, 2th, 3th" xD
Well.. guess it would be doable as a custom format.. though I worry just a little bit about translatability.. just in case it'll ever happen one day.

Does anyone else want days to be expressed like: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and so 4th ?

You need to install the MS Visual C++ 2010 redistributable package for the bitness (x86/x64) you're running.

they are linked under "Requirements" btw ;) https://github.com/W...T-Clock#requirements
Or, you could use the static builds... but since you need those redistributables sooner or later, non-static should be preferred.

OK, working now.

After I installed the C++ redistributables, I was getting a different error, but was away from it for a day and now it loads fine.

All solved though I know not how.

Hello everyone, sorry for my bad English.

I installed T-Clock REDUX on Win XP SP2 with white color font and, if you go with the mouse over the clock area (bottom right), appears a white rectangle that completely covers the date and time (white color font), but it appears correctly mouse-over tooltip text.

Instead using T-Clock 2010 this does not happen, no one white rectangle, and when you go with the mouse over the clock area you read correctly the date and time, but it did not appear the pop-up with the date.

Obviously if you use any different font color than white, it reads well even with the white rectangle, but I want to use the color white for the font.

It is a known problem and solved in some way?

You can eliminate the white rectangle that appears in the clock area?

You can possibly change the color of the rectangle with a specific item in the menu, so you can also make it transparent?

Thank you.

mimo331, I knew about this "issue".. basically XP wasn't designed to draw a "hover" background... that's why its just a white rectangle with black border around it...
Guess I'll put a OS version fence around that particular code (though, it would have been good if XP had a hover effect..)

Thanks for the reply.

I wait for the new update with the resolution of the "bug".

Bye.

Hi,
after having some Problems to switch from Stoic Jokers T-Clock to White Tigers T-Clock - and some PMs with Stoic Joker to solve the problem, I want to:
1. thank Stoic Joker for his previous work and his advice to solve the current problem
2. thank White Tiger for his work to continue T-Clock development

I've been using this kind of program for many many years (already the very old program, before Stoic Joker continued development)
I's great - and I'm glad, that now the week numbers for Europe (ISO 8601) are displayed in systray correctly.

The mentioned problem in new version was:
--> There was no text visible in systray. Even modification of font, colour, size didn't help.
Stoic Joker gave me the solution:
--> No convertion of old T-Clock to new T-Clock, but delete of the old values in registry and fresh installation of White Tigers T-Clock.

Thanks again - both of you - for your great work  :Thmbsup: :up: :)

you didn't make a backup of your "corrupted" settings by any chance?
Compatibility with Stoic Joker's version was one of my top priorities... that's why it converts settings... (well, generally backwards compatibility... and "upwards" compatibility when possible..)
I'm also unsure why the clock might be empty... unless the "no-clock" setting was set... but it's possible that I've even replaced that setting (if custom format is used, and empty, no-clock mode will be activated)

So... it was really empty? Rather, missing clock? So you couldn't even click on it to open settings etc.?
You're sadly not the first one with this issue... but I didn't get that many reports.. you're the 2nd or 3rd... yet no one managed to make a backup of their settings before deletion :(

--
I had an empty clock once.. but that was on Windows 2000 because my current/old code wasn't that compatible.. the same issue might happen on XP 32bit.. but the deletion of settings wouldn't work in my case anyway... (it was a fresh installation in my case.. and it simply couldn't write any settings... so it's a different case)

P.S.
I'm aware that I'm more than a month behind my schedule for my next release... currently the summer hit the place I live in... and I hate the heat xD But that's not actually the main reason... just the reason why it progresses even slower from now on.

Hi,
it's not easy to say, but IMHO the area was "not empty" - but "unvisible", as the area went bigger or smaller, depending what font or size or time setting I tried to choose.
But, as explained, no text was visible, only the normal blue background.  ... like the "East Frisian Flag: white dove on white ground ;)

My old time format was:
hh:nn:ss\nddd, dd/mm/yyyy "/ KW("Wm"+1)"

Everything else worked:
- right clicking to show the menu
- click to show the calendar view

What do you mean with "no clock setting"?

- After closing your T-Clock, the normal Windows clock was visible.
- After starting Stoic Jokers T-Clock again, the white text was visible again.
- But during different tests and numerous switching between yours an Stoic Joher's version - suddenly the text was absent in BOTH versions!
- As I didn't know the registry key at this time - I restored my windows (some days ago) - and afterwards Stoic Jokers Version worked again
- Afterwards Stoic Joker gave me the information to delete his registy key - and start your T-Clock complete fresh
--> this worked.

But:  
I have another PC - still with the old version of Stoic Jokers T-Clock. (Windows 7 x64)
I could send you these settings.

What do you need specially?

basically an registry export of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stoic Joker's\T-Clock 2010
Either manually or with such an batch file: (.export.cmd))
Code: Text [Select]
  1. @echo off
  2. pushd %~dp0
  3. regedit /e _export.reg "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stoic Joker's\T-Clock 2010"
  4. regedit /e _export64.reg "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wow6432Node\Stoic Joker's\T-Clock 2010"
  5. if exist _export.reg ( echo exported to "_export.reg" )
  6. if exist _export64.reg ( echo exported 32bit stuff to "_export64.reg" )
  7. popd
  8. echo.&echo anykey to exit&pause>nul

But I doubt that your other PC will have the same problems.. If possible though, I'd like to have an export before and after my version... yet the later is more important I guess.

So if the error occurs, just PM me your exports..

Hi,
yes ... you were right...
Though I had (IMHO) the same settings like on Laptop 1+2, the convertion of the old settings to your version worked without any problems. The text is visible in systray.

Hm... I don't understand ... but I'm only a normal user, no specialist like both of you...

I have exported the old settings on my computer manually before the convertion and could send it to you, if you want.
But I don't know, if it makes sense.

Does anyone else want days to be expressed like: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and so 4th ?

Firstly, I'd also like to say thanks to Stoic Joker for his long-standing work in making T-Clock such a useful and viable piece of software. I'd imagined that he was long lost in the ether of the past - but he still posts! Muchas gracias.

Second, TigX - yes, I'd like to support the introduction of ordinal date suffixes. Natural forces are subjecting us to the hegemony of our friends in the USA, but many in the rest of the world remain adherents to the logical 'small, bigger, biggest' form of date expression - dd/mm/yyyy, implicit in that being that days in a month are - the first one, the second one, etc.
Days don't have names: July Fifteen, December Twenty-Five, January One.. I call it ugly. However, suffixes in the USA aren't entirely unknown - July Fifteenth has been heard.
I'd recommend that st nd rd th th th.. become established as a 'class', or whatever programmers call such things. Such versatility would be most welcome here.

of course ;)

PhredE, just to make it clear for me, it's "31st", "22nd" ? (well, anyone who really knows that is welcome to answer xD)
And yes.. I would write "11th", and not "11st" ^^

Yes, TigX, that would be it. +"23rd", f crse. Other languages...? Hmm.. Non-trivial, but not complex, ergo some kind of class or function.
Would you make it available to the world, and beyond...? It'd be a first.
And, yes.

BTW, I've just yesterday come across your fork - in trying to understand Stoic's 'w' parameter; I was wanting to display UTC as well, with am/pm changing accordingly when td crossed 12.
Thanks for having the calendar close upon losing focus. ;)
Cheers.
