Hello all

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.
For example:
   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

Being that I had a vacation I decided to actually be on vacation (from everything) and left the computer alone for a while.

So popup calendar on mouse-over - The system global mouse-over timeout may cause performance issues (annoying response lagg) with/for that - But I'll look into it as it does sound rather handy.

I'm not sure if the context menu popup will share well with the single right click event, but yes I am  pondering alternatives for the now basically useless middle button/wheel click events.

That certainly sounds worth looking into.

I'm not sure we really need that many roads-to-Rome ... But, I may explore that later.

kronckew:
just a quick suggestion, came here to see if there were any updates since i installed tc 2010 for x64 in june. i note that in the 'about' tab in the properties it does not mention a version no., the current download in post 1 has an exe file date 3 days later than mine, but the internal version  number compiled into it is the same, and appears to bear no connection to the history. could you pls. add a date next to the versions in the history so we know when you compiled or released it, and/or put the version no. corresponding to the history lsit in the 'about'.  thanx for listening. great program anyway, working fine in win7 x64 ultimate so far.

@kronckew - Build # added to about screen.

Okay, as luck would have it, my brother who just moved down here and is staying with us for a while has a 42" TV with a PC input. This gave me a much better test platform for the High DPI bugg. So...

Monitor: 42" Toshiba 1080p HD TV
OS: Windows 7 Professional
Resolution: 1920x1080
DPI: 150

Dialog Position: Where it Belongs... (Finally!)

In case anyone is wondering, the origional code was actually correct, I just needed to add the DPI aware option to the manifest file - which required VS2010. *Sigh* ...I really liked VS2005 better.


Only (other) down side at this point is I'm not sure if/how well it will run on Windows 2000 after being compiled with MSVS2010.

On a brighter note, I can finally get on with some of the other ideas/suggestions that have been mentioned/discussed/requested above.

Well done!  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:
