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

it's still counter based.. and that good ;) There's no need to use the Windoze API.. and actually that would break things.
To be able to hide the calendar, it's important to get the single-click asap. Once the double-click time is expired, it's to late.

So I had to fix the mouse stuff to execute the single-click asap (that part was there, but bugged...) It works in that way as it checks if there's a double-click defined or not and if not it executes the single-click right away.

And as I said... it still counts clicks.. but only supports 2 clicks (not 3,4 as the other T-Clocks do) but I may add that part again in case it's needed..
mouse.c -> OnMouseMsg()

thanks char7 for that detailed report ;)
Hope I'm some when able to reproduce it myself (or someone else with time to test :P), otherwise it's hard to fix such thing.. (and sadly I'm not using 64bit^^)

clicking T-Clock once will open the calendar, clicking it again while the calendar was open will just reopen it and not just close it as the default clock does.

-maybe the quoted text should be added to the download-post (336616).
ehm... why? xD Clicking once opens, clicking again hides as of now..

well there's a catch actually.. you shouldn't have a double-click action for your calendar key defined... in that case it'll open again even on single-click.. this is due to the time delay involved. And there's actually nothing that can be changed about it... except for some vodoo magic as using a bool to set a flag and once no double-click occurs in time and the single click would be executed, we'll just ignore it as the calendar already hid. That'll be ok and working :P

that's not possible as far as I know... it's using the Windoze calendar control... that one does all the stuff by itself... just give it some space and it'll do his best to show the calendar and is happy :P

so not even the context menu works? that's strange...
The clock is still there right xD?

Well... I didn't make any change that I know of that could have caused this...
So I need to ask you which OS (including 32/64 bit), where is your Taskbar located and does it happen all the time? (Win+L, then go back in again)
And it worked with Stoic Joker's and LonelyPixel's build?

*sigh*... made a mistake with my last build :P basically I've changed a type of a variable from BOOL to char, but I didn't know that one external file declares it again as extern... with type BOOL^^
Not sure if this can cause a crash or other stuff... as the linker still knows what was meant and thus it might be ok.... ugly but ok.

Anyway... I suggest you to again download my build (link 's still the same)

@Stoic Joker
I'm still open to suggestions and bug fixes... don't worry ;) I just hoped I was done with my prior work... but it seemed like not xD (and I still wonder if there are any users out there that hate my calendar changes...)

Well... I guess and hope I'm done ;)

I suggest anyone who used my previous build to update. (this fixes at least 1 crash and some possible crashes)
Also: it now allows one to choose whether to use system calendar/tooltip or not.
+ Mouse Button 4 and 5 can be used.

P.S. please check if clicking once shows calendar, and clicking again hides (of course, u'll have to enable mouse clicks first)
P.P.S. devs: can anyone with Visual Studio please check the project files? Do they still work? (I hope they do... they work with WinSDK)

@WhiteTigX - The SNTP code (with hotkey and logging functions) is already in T-Clock 2010, it's just been EasterEgged due to its requirement of administrative rights to reset the system time.
I know ;) And it works.. but the one from TClockLight kt is not only already an external app but seems to be improved (better accuracy etc..)
So I still stick with that one ;) But I'll try to compare them both and see what can be improved.

EDIT: btw thanks for releasing this build. I've been looking forward to this feature ever since the 2010 version was released.
Thanks goes to 21944.450^^ He's the one who asked for it... and I was to lazy to implement it just for my little self :P
And yes, "double-clicking" might work or might not.. Still.. it's more kind of a bug (in this case the typical bug=feature thingy) I will try to do it proper next time...

currently I'm trying to implement the calendar for XP as a stand alone app which will be called from T-Clock in case you want the T-Clock calendar ;) (this reduces memory usage for those who only use the calendar from time to time and for those who use the default one)
I'm kind of a performance freak.. so it will take some time :P (as I will try to improve other stuff as well)

Anyone of the devs here against the outsourcing idea? Eg. build everything into Clock.exe or use standalone apps for "unimportant" stuff? Eg. calendar, sntp (I plan on using the sntp stuff from TClockLight kt)
The only draw back I can think of is bigger distribution size and thus a little more disk space wasted^^ And it might take a few ms longer to launch external apps such as the XP calendar, but that should be negligible (except on high PC load)

[...] click again to close [...]
that shouldn't work... actually it can't work^^ Are you sure about that?

I guess you miss understood me...
The problem lies indeed within the focus-loose-ability of the Windows clock calendar... And since it's the standard calendar, I can't detect it's focus loss without some kind of injection... Otherwise it would be easy to just assume it's still open and then just close it....

I'm stuck here... unable to think of anyway around it :P (I still wonder how the original clock does it... since most of the task is done by the taskbar itself (mouse movement, clicks etc.) and they communicate only by messages. Thus the same way we/I do... Maybe the clock just sends a message to the taskbar :P To lazy to check that^^ It won't really help anyway.

here you go.. (hope the 64bit build does work...)
I've also removed the T-Clock tooltip stuff... so this will only show the original tooltip and calendar.

So there's still stuff to do... add options to choose which calendar to use (or maybe not :P) or to use T-Clock's custom tooltip instead of windows default one... etc.
Also... I couldn't find a way to get the same behavior as the default clock... so clicking T-Clock once will open the calendar, clicking it again while the calendar was open will just reopen it and not just close it as the default clock does...

Anyway.. the build should be stable and hopefully enough for you ;) (it's enough for me :P)

P.S. sry about the delay... I just saw your post today^^
P.P.S. I didn't upload the source right now as it's not clear how it should be implemented and my current source is quite ugly :P Otherwise I would have created a Git folk to make it easy to implement it on the master (and I would have run astyle on the source, besides other cleanup stuff)

In case you guys still want to know how to display the windoze calendar, its possible ;)
  • Find the tray window with class: "Shell_TrayWnd"
  • find control with class: "TrayClockWClass"
  • PostMessage: WM_USER+102,1,0
IIRC you already got that handle.. or at least a system to find such windows/controls. I just can't implement it myself as I'm a gcc developer and I don't want to convert your source :P

P.S. wParam=0 or WM_USER+103 will show the original tooltip... (which I prefer... not only because it will show different time zones)
