Greece

And your version only show english locale(ie. the first one) no matter what other locale i set!

Okay, this is rather interesting. It seems that you have identified a paradigm shift in the project that I've never seen/noticed before. The original TClock, and TClock Lite both have the same behavior in that the Clock's regional language is independent of (and completely ignores) the system.

Where as Two_toNe & I (albeit unwittingly), Use/leverage the system's regional setting (ignoring its-own) to determine the clock's output (see below).
 (see attachment in previous post)(Now if by chance that ain't actually Greek ...(I've not a clue)... I may be screwed)


So actually the Locale setting on the Time Format tab is a decorative artifact of a configuration that (perhaps was only for Win9x) is no-longer used.

Does that make sense? Or do you think there would be need to have the clocks textural region working independently of the (rest of the OS) Windows shell?

Obviously something must be done, as the non/dysfunctional control could be quite annoying. I'm thinking that (pull the control) shell integration/harmony is the (long term) less confusing option ... But you it seems do use/have a need for this feature. Yes?

I'll hold off on doing anything in either direction until I hear from you.
When i started using Tclock i didn't have this feature in mind, but after using it i found it more convenient to have months and days names in my local language, since my most usage of these are in my local language and not in english.
Unlike my common usage for my PC; which is in English, so english local is needed for my system.
I hope you get my point.

- Local option doesn't work for non english languages, while it was working fine in old versions.
Can you expand on this a bit, and give an example of what output should but isn't working.

Actually, I'd forgotten that group existed - Even though I'm fighting to maintain Win 2000 compatibility (Doh!) -  (you win) I'll put it on the to-do list :)
Glad to know this.
Few more suggestion if you would like to consider to add/fix to your latest build
- Local option doesn't work for non english languages, while it was working fine in old versions.
- Timer options from old versions is much better, i wish you could return the options as in TClock Lite version by Kazuto Soto.
Thanks

@tomos - Thanks for the assist. :)

I´d like to change a systray background colour under the date&time digits.

With the default (themes in XP and) transparency in Vista & 7 the clock background color feature really didn't work that well anymore, which is why it was pulled. I have had a few requests for it's return, but am honestly not sure if it can be done (properly). It is something I plan to explore at some point, but can't specify when as it is not a high priority.
What about us who use the classic theme on windows 7, background should work fine.
The only problem i found with other alternatives, is when explorer crash the clock doesn't run so i have to kill the task and run it again.
I just tried tclock2(that i found on your site), and explorer crash problem is solved, and the background option exist and work fine, so i will use tclock2 for now because background color is very essential for me, and i hope you could return this option back(and keep it disabled by default).
Thank you
