Did I ask already what happens when you execute "Calendar.exe" manually? (with the 64bit version first if your OS is 64bit, try the 32bit version after that)

well... the Calendar isn't part of Clock.exe and I never had any issue with my Win8.1
But what did you mean with "high DPI setting" and why should that prevent the Calendar from opening?

I hope you're tried to open it without the options dialog opened... but ye.. there are a lot of bugs xD Some XP related... and generally a focus problem...
What ever is the cause, the Calendar should always work when "close on lose focus" isn't checked.

that's just the controls default behavior... not much to do about it..
It's also not easy and kinda hacky to handle a click on the "today" link/button...

[...] While I've never been a fan of installes for this type of small program, [...]
I generally hate installers :P
Maybe... once T-Clock's file structure and hooking etc. gets a rewrite, I might as well add a hybrid installer... It will ask whether to "install" or use portable on first launch... (including an install/uninstall button inside the about page)

Hi, WhiteTigX. Would you consider doing a Lclock calendar "clone" for our beloved clock?

Pictures are in the first two post on page 21.
I've seen that... considering "LClock", my highest priority would be to add similar clock text customizations... my lowest priority whatsoever would be the Calendar^^
It's just tons of work to add even a basic one barely similar to that of LClock.. Skin support for example is a lot of work...
T-Clocks current Calendar drives me nuts already xD It's not working the way I want it to...

@Stoic Joker
I've partially rewrote all that menu items stuff already :P Simplified lots of it and got rid of some resources as well... I've also reordered resources.. and nothing happened, it's still working ;)
But I've added notes about defines that have to be in order...
Take a look at this source to see which notes I mean ;)

Otherwise I've once killed the exit T-Clock function completely^^ Had to kill explorer xD So no need for VM... everything is good ;)

P.S. here you can also see that the menu items position isn't relevant anymore nor hardcoded, they can be reordered within the resource file as wanted without breaking a thing:

well... I don't really think those buttons are needed... you didn't change other stuff besides that.. "non-existing" menu items could include a dummy text.. such as "double-click to add new" or something... Or a context menu on right click... (while also allowing keyboard such as DEL, UP/DOWN and RETURN^^)

The popup for editing could be included into the properties window as well... not another tab, but it could overwrite the "Menu Items" tab ;)
Non the less... I would rather like a fully customizable menu... thus the possibility to remove every single item, reorder them etc... Similar to the "Mouse" tab..

T-Clock / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download)
« on: June 19, 2014, 03:35 AM »
[...] I think a menu item would be good, too. And a fold out menu listing all defined alarms--similar to the Timers menu--would be amazing.
... oh boy... I thought you just wanted a mouse click option for that one :P I don't actually like to bloat the menu too much... it would require a rewrite to be able to activate and disable all of them if someone wants to.. (with the Exit menu item at least available by holding down SHIFT or CTRL)
What do you want that "fold out menu" to have or behave like? Right now it would still be the same as the properties page...

All that "Alarms" and "Timers" stuff isn't that user friendly... nor easy to understand...
Alarms should for example also work on a specific date... chosen by a date picker control or something like that.

Something I didn't mention before: It's not obvious how to create a new menu item in the "Menu Item Details" tab. It might be a good idea to add a "New Menu Item" button. I just now figure out that I have to start from the "Quicky Menu Items" tab.
... while I like to improve usability like I did with the mouse tab... I hate to rewrite those dialogs xD Besides I can't see how it could be better... Unless you want to draw me and example :P

P.S. I know bugs related to the Calendar already :P Didn't work out on XP as I thought^^ Nor is the focus thing fully working.. (that one worked in all my tests before...)

well I have no real logo :P And the one in the about screen now is just the one you use as an avatar here... I've screwed it up a little as I tried to get the background transparent... that's the result xD
It's not even as perfect as I'd like it to be...

The "code" you've posted doesn't mention "Two_toNe" at all... actually it's the same in my version... I've attached a screen how it "should" look like:

hmm... needed my own screen shot to see that "Two_toNe" is actually mentioned xD That's the part with T-Clock2^^

T-Clock / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download)
« on: June 18, 2014, 04:51 PM »
well... the history in it is still the same... with my little addition at the end...

There isn't that much space actually.. so I'll either have to add scrollbars, shorten the text or leave it the way it is^^
I might remove the "Redux" text as well... You really want Two_toNe there?

How about the Stoic Joker icon btw ;) Is it ok? I personally like the darken color.. but it's your Logo after all..

New release ;) Lots of changes and bug fixes, see Github front page
sadly I had to recreate the Github repository... it's a bad thing to do so, but there were binary files that shouldn't have been there and some authors weren't credited... This IS the last and only recreate of that kind, I promise ;)


Please take your time and test it... I did.. but changed so much that it's hard to be sure if everything still works xD I guess it does... but a re-check doesn't hurt ;)
Also please speak about my Github front page, I wanna hear your responses about it 8) (and the "new" name)

this should include everything you've wanted ;) Please test and report back :P

@Stoic Joker:
please check about screen and tell if you're happy with it^^
You can also see at my Github that the first commit's Author is you now ;)
Could you adapt the topic according? Add my download links by pointing to my Github releases page, and also put my Github page where you've got the other one.

not sure if I will ever add that... but you're right, T-Clock doesn't include such a feature...
I'm not totally against it... but do you really like/need it? Isn't the transition with the task-bar way better :P?

About that Calendar "problem"... you had the options dialog open don't you? Yep it can't "open" in that case... well it does... but it closes right away when "Close Calendar on Lose Focus" is checked... reason being that the options dialog somehow keeps focus... dunno what to do about it...

And yes, I've received your PM... when you've meant this less describing one :P
Yeah, that's all it does. So all you'd really need to do is add that "set time" feature to the mouse actions tab.

well.. I'm planning on adding an extended editor for easier clock customization.. T-Clock is a nice piece of software, but for most people too hard to use. (a default configuration should also be added... so that is handles mouse clicks the same way as the default clock)

This extended editor includes live preview of what the modifier does (within the editor) but also a live preview on the tray clock itself... this especially helps with font settings, margins and that stuff.
But that's just what I want it to have.. I can't say how soon (if at all) I'm actually doing this :P It requires some rewrites and the dialog itself is a lot of work too^^

Stoic Joker, since you're still around, could you edit in a link to the latest version in the first post? I almost missed it, and was going to report a bug that has now been fixed.

it's not his fault actually :P He asked others for that already... including the "removal" of his name etc... I didn't do this as of now... my next release will fix that though, but hadn't a real reason to do anything yet :P No bug reports for example xD

But your requests should be doable :P

Will take a while though since I have to redo my Github repo... including, reverting it and using the "release" feature of Github... adding the binaries to the Git repo isn't good xD But didn't know any better back then...

there are actually 4 week "systems" build into T-Clock...
Ws : simple, week starts at Sunday
Wm : simple, week starts at Monday
Wi : complex, added by and uses ISO-8601 standard
Ww : simple but custom from Stoic Joker

All show 22 except for Wi which shows 23

wanna try TeamViewer :P? I guess the solution is a simple one, but it might take lots of trial and error^^
we might also talk by using TeamSpeak, Steam or TeamViewer itself^^

Your German OS shouldn't matter btw.

guess it's not smooth enough for you? Have you tried other "Quality" settings? There isn't a best one actually.. some look better and others do not.. but this is from PC and OS to OS different... I use "... (Win7)" atm. but I don't necessarily have to.

forget about M$ functions, they simply won't work.
In this case it's either returning an abbreviation or full name....

T-Clock / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download)
« on: February 06, 2014, 10:24 AM »
actually I would use that list... not only because I'm not qualified enough to decide which country is of most importance from the timezone point of view, but also for it to at least work more or less... It can be improved later on...

But there are problems even with that list of yours... "Central Asia Standard Time" might not have a proper abbreviation.. maybe "CASIA" is ok in that case... maybe not :P (got that one from http://speleotrove.c...pmglobe/pmtimez.html )
The main problem with that list is for example "Dateline Standard Time" ... what's its abbreviation?

Here's the "adopted" list so far:
Code: C++ [Select]
  1. -12.00, ?/?             //Dateline Standard Time
  2. -11.00, SST/?           //Samoa Standard Time
  3. -10.00, HST/-           //Hawaiian Standard Time
  4. -09.00, AKST/AKDT               //Alaska Standard Time
  5. -08.00, PST/PDT         //Pacific Standard Time
  6. -06.00, CST/CDT         //Central Standard Time
  7. -05.00, EST/EDT         //Eastern Standard Time
  8. -04.00, AST/ADT         //Atlantic Standard Time
  9. -03.30, NST/NDT         //Newfoundland Standard Time
  10. -03.00, WGT/WGST                //West Greenland Time
  11. -02.00, /               //Mid-Atlantic Standard Time ??????????????
  12. -01.00, AZOT/AZOST              //Azores Time
  13. +-00.00, UTC/BST                //UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) and "British Summer Time" during summer
  14. +01.00, CET/CEST                //Central European Time
  15. +02.00, EET/EEST                //Eastern European Time
  16. +03.00, /               //Russian Standard Time ????????????????
  19. +03.30, /               //Iran Standard Time
  20. +04.00, /               //Arabian Standard Time
  21. +04.30, /               //Transitional Islamic State of Afghanistan Standard Time
  22. +05.00, /               //West Asia Standard Time
  23. +05.30, /               //India Standard Time
  24. +05.45, /               //Nepal Standard Time
  25. +06.00, /               //Central Asia Standard Time
  26. +06.30, /               //Myanmar Standard Time
  27. +07.00, /               //North Asia Standard Time
  28. +08.00, /               //North Asia East Standard Time
  29. +09.00, /               //Tokyo Standard Time
  30. +09.30, /               //Cen. Australia Standard Time
  31. +10.00, /               //E. Australia Standard Time
  32. +11.00, /               //Central Pacific Standard Time
  33. +12.00, /               //New Zealand Standard Time
  34. +13.00, /               //Tonga Standard Time
and as you can see, I tried to adopt it till "Russian Standard Time"... which is probably wrong anyway... as "Moscow Standard Time" time is +4... and I for myself would call that "Russian Standard Time" but +4 is already used...
"Mid-Atlantic Standard Time" doesn't really exist either... and I had to change some names...
http://www.timeandda...eviations/timezones/ is more trustful in terms of "common" names...

Like I said before... a perfect list will never be possible... not only because a lot of countries use the same offset but got different names, but also because time zones change frequently... that's why the tz database exists... and that one determines the timezone by country... and doesn't have that useful abbreviations... Besides T-Clock doesn't know the country, using that Database will also bloat T-Clock to much.

edit @ 05/28/14, some spelling fixes..

I haven't had any problem with build 95 plus the Posix dll on Win 8. [...]
Does that mean without “Posix dll” there's a problem? Honestly... I don't even know what you've meant by “Posix dll”...

May I ask you what's wrong with Windows 8? I've tested T-Clock there and it was working fine^^
Actually my HD space is limited and my PC isn't the best as well, so I can't install Win8 on a virtual machine... all my testing was limited to remotely testing it on a friends machine.
So what doesn't work there?

I've also read your article (at least the updated stuff) and want to let you know that my "fork" as you've called (which isn't that wrong) doesn't currently use stuff from TClockLight kt... I've just thought about using its NTP stuff/tool since it's improved over T-Clocks. But never did so as of now ;)

Did Stoic Joker really talk about rewriting T-Clock? Sure there's stuff that has to be improved... but I see no real reason to rewrite it from scratch :P (I do so little by little ;)) One could improve the way it hooks into the clock, how the DLL and executable work together to further improve performance and stability on possible crash... but T-Clock is already light in RAM and CPU usage

PS: I'm still not done with T-Clock... for example one still wants proper TZN support, but I'm still kinda stuck there as there isn't just one unified timezone name per time offset... PST/PDT etc. for USA seems ok... same as UTC for England.. maybe even CET for "Central European Time"... but there are other countries beside some in Europe that use UTC+1 and it gets even worse going further east... There are multiple names for the same time offset... not easy to unify that for T-Clock... some will be happy, others not.
So if someone got a good timezone list with just 1 name per offset, I'll be happy :P (even though it cannot be done perfectly...)

sry for this late reply...
You'll have to export T-Clocks settings yourself using RegEdit...
It's in: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stoic Joker's\T-Clock 2010

Or use those CMD files I've attached ;)

edit @ 07/03/2015:
removed attachment. Those batch files are quite outdated and actually don't properly work with UAC enabled (they export/import to/from C:\Windows\System32 if elevated later)
