Awesome docklet the only reason I keep my original toolbar visible is to see the time -- I'm analog clock impaired (couldn't read one to save my life ) either way; digital is more easier Now all you need to make is an MSN docklet

Hey, this is by far the most useful docklet on this website (in my opinion). Thanks alot AndreasV. I just have one little problem though, i'm trying to make it only display the time, without the date. It works but everytime my computer restarts, so does the docklet. It starts displaying the date again... I was wondering if someone had a way to fix this or if you could possibly help me out. Thanks again. Edit: I just tried the Alt 0160 method but it doesn't seem to work on my laptop...

Every time ObjectDock opens back up (such as starting up Windows) the clock and label formats I have set are reset to their defaults. This 'bug' (is it considered a bug?) even occured with the RocketDock version, but it was less often than with ObjectDock.

Thank you so much, it's exactly what I was looking for. The date problem can be fixed adding 'gg' also; it's supposed to be 'period/era string' but since it doesn't work--at least in my laptop, there is nothing to be displayed. Here's my new "Quick launch bar"

So... When I try to extract the files it says that I don't have permission or something like that. 6 errors come up and it won't let me extract it to the proper folder

Thanx alot for making this docklet. I really wanted a digital clock, and you are the only one who got the idea of making one.

I have 1 question though: would it be possible to let the digital clock take up 2 icon spaces? I have a really small bar in the lower right side with my system tray and your clock. When I make it as small as I would like it to be, the clock is unreadable (I have already dleete the date strings)

It seems win2k does have a problem with the datetimepicker control


Is it a statment that means:
a) You want this to work - Upgrade to WinXP
I am contempating on ways to solve it... hang on.

I am secretly rooting for (, but should I hold my breath?

A working digital clock is the only thing from Y'z Dock that I cannot get on ObjectBar. (the other "pimplet" is not showing the date.)

Please, tell me there is hope! (

OH WIAT! nevermind. I just tried clicking and dragging and it worked. Thanks for this great product!!

Thanks for a great docklet! I have a question though. Is there any solution for the time update problem? The docklet works just fine until the resolution is changed. After that the time freezes and I have to manually update it. Thanks again!

Wow, people just ignored the many individuals who were politely asking how to add the clock to their docks.

Well, I managed to find out for myself, no thanks to others.


This is how to add this clock to ObjectDock.

- After downloading the file from above, open it with a program that can be easily downloaded from the internet called WinRAR.

- Highlight the three files inside, and drag them to your desktop.

- Open Computer/My Computer, open the hard drive where you installed ObjectDock to (normally named 'Local Disk'), open Program Files, open Stardock, then open the folder that has the words 'ObjectDock' in, then open Docklets and finally open Clock.

- Now drag the 'digitalclock.dll' file that you extracted to your desktop just now, to the Clock folder.

- The rest is simple. Just right click on an empty space on your dock, go to Settings, Add, Docklets, then click on 'Simple Digital Clock'.


This only took a few minutes out of my time to write, but can help many. If someone wrote it years ago, it would have saved years worth of people wondering how to do it.

No problem.

I'm sorry for commenting so long after AndreasV has seemingly vanished, but I've run into some problems of my own. I use RocketDock instead of ObjectDock, though, so I'm not entirely certain if my problem would still find any support here.


Bug report:

Summary: Time freeze

Details: Displayed time randomly freezes and will only change when "Update" is chosen from the menu, though visual progression will not resume.

This problem does not effect the function of the main dock, which is still fully usable in every way.

The only way to escape this problem is to close and reopen the dock itself.
