Wow !!!!!

Thank you very much Tiggz.

( I think too all your works are "stellar" )
Comment #6 Friday, March 17, 2006 12:34 PM
Yes, me too. Tiggs, you are tops. This is a really nice complement to your Omni analog version, which I use a lot. The Omni mail widget is the best I've found!

jlaj1989 ~ basically what you do is use the 'Now' function to get the date and time and store it in a variable something like:

Dim StartTime
StartTime = Now

then you need to set up a timer in the script to fire every second and get the current date and time, then you can use the 'DateDiff' function to compare the two: DateDiff(interval, date1, date2)

CurrentTime = Now
ElapsedSeconds = DateDiff(s, StartTime, CurrentTime)
ElapsedMinutes = DateDiff(n, StartTime, CurrentTime)
ElapsedHours = DateDiff(h, StartTime, CurrentTime)

then you can use these values to set the text of your displayed time object, maybe something like..

desktopx.object("MyTimeObject").text = ElapsedHours & ":" & ElapsedMinutes & ":" & ElapsedSeconds

you can find out how to work with timers in the script here Link

and you can reference vbscript functions here Link

Thank You Very Much!!
It says
Invalid procedure call or argument: 'DateDiff'
Line: 10
(not available)

'Called when the script is executed
Dim StartTime
StartTime = Now
Sub Object_OnScriptEnter
object.SetTimer 123, 1
End Sub

Sub Object_OnTimer123
CurrentTime = Now
ElapsedSeconds = DateDiff(s, StartTime, CurrentTime)
ElapsedMinutes = DateDiff(n, StartTime, CurrentTime)
ElapsedHours = DateDiff(h, StartTime, CurrentTime)
End Sub
desktopx.object("MyTimeObject").text = ElapsedHours & ":" & ElapsedMinutes & ":" & ElapsedSeconds
'Called when the script is terminated
Sub Object_OnScriptExit

End Sub

Thats the code i used.

OK, forget what I wrote before, I think I was suffering from tea deficiency. Try something like the following - I tested it and everything

Dim StartTime

Sub Object_OnScriptEnter
StartTime = Now
object.SetTimer 123, 1000
End Sub

Sub Object_OnTimer123
CurrentTime = Now

'total number of seconds from the start time to the current time
ElapsedSeconds = DateDiff("s", StartTime, CurrentTime)

'these lines split up the total number of seconds into hours. minutes and seconds
varSeconds = ElapsedSeconds Mod 60
varMinutes = int((ElapsedSeconds-varSeconds)/60) Mod 60
varHours = int((ElapsedSeconds-varMinutes*60)/60/60)

'these lines will add leading zeroes
If varSeconds < 10 Then varSeconds = "0" & varSeconds
If varMinutes < 10 Then varMinutes = "0" & varMinutes
If varHours < 10 Then varHours = "0" & varHours

'display the result
desktopx.object("MyTimeObject").text = varHours & ":" & varMinutes & ":" & varSeconds

End Sub

Hey tiggz first off great skin man i love GT3 , and well i have a simple request, would it be possible for you to make a simple OD clock skin? I just want everything to match and i don't have DX so i cant use this one, well keep up the great work and by the way a few more OD GT3 icons wouldn't hurt man like firefox,CS3,tune up utils, winrar well u get my point i know you're really busy with your new stuff but hey is such a great skin that well I figured I throw that out there. , thanks

How do I remove this widget? Right clicking and selecting "close widget" isn't working. I find it a little troubling that when I did somehow manage to remove it once, it still comes on every time I start up windows, despite the fact that I deleted it from my hard drive. This is a pretty annoying bug...
