Question. say I was to make it smaller (my laptop is only 1024x768). Will the script still show the same time? I would imagine that since it will be a proportional decrease than it should. But I thought I'd ask before I went ahead and messed with it.

You could easily do that, but you'd have to slightly edit the script.

At the top of the script are 4 constants...

Code: vbscript
  1. Const nCEN_X = 342
  2. Const nCEN_Y = 322
  3. Const nMEC_X = 250
  4. Const nMEC_Y = 229


nCEN_X and nCEN_Y define where the center of the clock face is from the top left of the main graphic

nMEC_X and nMEC_Y define the coordinates of the animated mechanism, relative to it's parent (the main graphic again).

So if you change the size of the graphics in the object properties or a graphics program, then just make sure you change the script constants to suit.

The center of the clockface is not the center of the graphic, which is why I have those constants - and to make it easier for people to mess around with.

Isn't it amazing how one can see a preview and know who's work it is?

Lovely and functional as usual Matt.

"and it shows the correct time! " cracked me up. 

Did you mean to leave the minute hand moveable?  UH -oh . . I accidently moved teh hour hand and now can't find where to grab it and put it bak.    Easier to redownload than try to fix.

The hands are locked, also grouped with everything else and have activation set to "none" - so I conclude you have special powers!

But - having forseen this could be a problem I made the script reposition all the elements when it starts. So if you move things around then just restarting desktopx should set it right
