Just recently found T-Clock after years of using Dale Nurden's program.
I'm glad to see this effort going on as I had always hoped there would be enhancements made.
I use the functionality every day at both home and work.
I'd like to offer some enhancement ideas that may or may not have already been suggested.
1 Allow what is displayed when the mouse hovers over the date/time in the system tray to be user selectable.
What I personally would select for example is to display the current months calendar.
This allows you to quickly see the month without using up one of your mouse click options
2 Add right click capability to match the left click.
Note: Middle button on Win 7 Pro brings up "document flip" so we really only have 2 copies not 4 available.
My motivation for this is to give us at least one if not two additional copy strings.
Example use case:
--- Left Single Click - copy the current date time as a Prefix - e.g. yyyy-mm-dd_
--- Left Double Click - copy the current date time as a Suffix - e.g. _yyyy-mm-dd_hh"hrs"_mm"mins"
--- Right Single Click - copy in a user defined string - e.g. an email address, [email protected]
--- Right Double Click - copy in a user defined string - e.g. an email address, [email protected]
3 Auto Rename file for file drag and drop?
This might be possible now but it's beyond my knowledge of how one would set this up.
The idea here would be to rename a dropped file to have a predefined user date/time string appended as a prefix or suffix before the file extension.
This might be the same as the single click option for example or perhaps yet another string specifically for this purpose.
Original file name: Draft_ideas.doc
Suffix Drag drop results in: Draft_ideas_2010-07-02_02hrs_07mins.doc
Prefix Drag drop results in: 2010-07-02_Draft_ideas.doc
4 Drag and drop the clock ?
I've got no idea if this is even remotely possible....
What if you click down on the date/time in the system tray and drag and drop it?
Could this be made to paste a string?
I hope to one day get modern coding skills back up to date and join you all as contributing developers.
Thanks again for your efforts
