I thought I'd provide some details on how to read the time in case anyone would like to know..

Starting from the left there are two columns each for Hours, Minutes and Seconds. Starting from the top most row the values of the digits are 8, 4, 2, 1. So, to read the time you simply add the lit LED's to get that columns value.

So, the time above is:


And that concludes out binary lesson for the day..

Cool, now we have two binary clocks. Anyone else wanna try one?

Yours is definitely easier to read. For lesser geeks. j/k

Oh, and I meant to say, good job. A much more polished binary clock than mine.

f0r3: Shouldn't the number 1 be marked on the right side of a digit?
Instead of:
Is should be:
Anyway, nice job. This one keeps getting better.

You know... I asked myself that VERY same question more than once.. To be quite honest, I'm not sure. I don't have any digital clocks to actually look at. I'll dig around a bit and see where the 1 lines up, whether it's on the right or the left. If it's the right I'll fix the alignment.

Thanks for the attention to detail!!

thanx man! i tried writing my own, but it didnt go well, i absolutely love binary, simply because i can read it as fast as a reg. clock yet no one else in my family even understands it, hehehe
Comment #12 Tuesday, April 27, 2004 8:17 PM
is there any way for me to view the source code? (2 reasons, i want to see how it is more efficient than my own, since it obviously is, and so i can integrate it into another desktop object)

Sure.. Right-click on your DX tasktray icon and list objects. Scroll down until you find the object named ClockBack, right-click on it and edit script. It's not optimized in any way, and instead of using timers for the tray sliding I just use a loop with sleep statements but it works well enough and it doesn't seem to affect the system too badly.. If you have any questions just ask, afterall that's how we all learn. Good Luck!

thanx, i just have one more question, how can i export my program as a .exe? as far as i can see, im only able to export as a .dxpack (and im using the full version by the way)
Comment #15 Wednesday, April 28, 2004 10:24 PM
You should be able to export as a dxpack or as a widget with the full version but you have to have the professional version in order to export as exe. It's like $120 more if you have an ODNT subscription and you can't sell the widgets you create with that version.

awesome, I have a binary clack2
Comment #17 Wednesday, April 27, 2005 2:41 PM
Would you mind if I used this script in a DX theme? Binary clocks are awesome, and this is no exception. Very easy to use, and classy. Great job!
