T-Clock / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download)

So it's an auto-hide taskbar?
Yes, I ran some tests, adjusting the time to 23:59..
Then I waited to see what happened when the dated changed.
As long as the taskbar were visible, T-Clock refreshed itself automatically like it should.
..but when I performed the same test with the taskbar hidden, the problem occured every time!

I'll guess you're not the same person?
Sorry, but I didn't notice that report.
I'm a different person.

For me, it doesn't necessarily happen right after I log on..
I rather suspect that T-Clock doesn't refresh itself properly when the date changes, but I'm not sure.

is it the primary or secondary clock?
I've only got one monitor.

Horizontal or Vertical taskbar?

Is the clock size larger or less than the Windows clock size?
Larger (Arial / 11 / Bold).
These are the same settings that I used with build 151, where the problem never occured.

What means "sometimes"?
Since I installed build 419 eight days ago, I've noticed it 3 or 4 times.


After messing around with it a bit now, I've figured out where the problem lies..
T-Clock doesn't refresh itself properly when the taskbar is hidden (which mine usually is).

There's a bug in build 419 which sometimes causes the text to be cut off:

Refreshing T-Clock fixes it right away, but that's just a workaround.
It never happened while I was using build 151.

are you sure you're running the latest version? (Beta2, build 419)

I can confirm that the issue is fixed in build 419.
Good work! :)

@THEtomaso, since v2.4.1, T-Clock shouldn't run the update checker until the user closed the Options on first start.

Thanks for changing this behaviour, WhiteTigX. :)

Unfortunately though, with this latest build, the most important feature (IMO) is broken for me..
No matter which text colour I use, it reverts to white instantly when I move the mouse cursor over it!

I've decided to add a question dialog regarding the update checker
Great! :)


I've re-read some of my own posts a while ago and I really sound like an asshole from time to time
That's not the impression that I got!
..but I DID get the feeling that discussing it any further would be pointless. :)


What do you think?
Just make sure that it doesn't try to connect to the internet even once, unless the user has actually pressed that "Keep enabled" button first!

Thanks for continuing the work on the excellent T-Clock software!

I've got a major gripe with the latest release though..

I've been using 'T-Clock Redux' for a while now, and recommending it to other people.
However, with the v2.4.0 beta release, the program now behaves in such a manner that I can no longer recommend it to anyone.
Yes, I'm talking about the new Update Checker! :(

The program now instantly tries to connect to the internet at first launch, without the user's consent.
I blocked the connection attempt with my firewall, and then proceeded to look for the option to turn this feature off..
According to the changelog, you have to "check for updates once and remove the check marks"..
Well, I tried that, and ran into this error:

I guess that I have to unblock it with my firewall, and actually LET it connect to the internet, before I can get access to these settings?
Well, that's not gonna happen.
I'm sorry to say, but this kind of behaviour is a real deal-breaker, even for a open source program!
Please REMOVE the Update Checker from the final build, or at least turn it OFF BY DEFAULT and let us change the setting for it while being offline!
