Oh... You didn't provide that information? :oops:

Maybe you should. :D

Thats one of the the answers we need. :) We have a version number...

Have you read the instructions on the time info plug-in? Cause if you had you would have read that it also requires a clock bitmap to be placed in the LCDinfo directory also.

See the start of this topic here: and fully read the first post. It'll explain a few things to you. If you have fully read and followed those instructions, and still have a problem, then feel free to post again asking for help. But please provide all of the information asked for above, as we can't really help you without it.

That could be a problem. Try build 18 or newer.

Did you rename the bmp to 'Clock_Background.bmp' ?
And you need to make screenfile like this:
<item type="pluginimage" x="5" y="9">

I've improved this plugin somewhat. It has a few extra variables, and an analog clock without the seconds hand is added. Also the linedrawing bug has been eliminated, as well as a bug that caused months and days to be swapped.
I've cleaned up the code too, it's much much shorter now... I have to admit, at some point I was like "what the F$#*& was this guy smoking when he wrote this?!". Oh well. All is well now ;)

Well, here's the source, and here's the dll. Have fun :)

"TimeInfo.Hour" Name:"System Time Hours"
"TimeInfo.Minute" Name:"System Time Minutes"
"TimeInfo.Second" Name:"System Time Seconds"
"TimeInfo.Time" Name:"System Time (hh:mm:ss)"
"TimeInfo.Day" Name:"System Date Day"
"TimeInfo.Month" Name:"System Date Month"
"TimeInfo.Year" Name:"System Date Year (YYYY)"
"TimeInfo.ShortYear" Name:"System Date Year (YY)"
"TimeInfo.Date0" Name:"System Date (dd/mm/yy)"
"TimeInfo.Date1" Name:"System Date (mm/dd/yy)"
"TimeInfo.Weekday" Name:"System Weekday (Monday-Friday)"
"TimeInfo.ShortWeekday" Name:"System Short Weekday (Mon-Fri)"
"TimeInfo.Month_Name" Name:"System Date Month (January - December)"
"TimeInfo.Month_ShortName" Name:"System Date Month (Jan - Dec)"
"TimeInfo.Analog" Name:"System Analog Clock"
"TimeInfo.AnalogWithoutSec" Name:"System Analog Clock w/o Seconds Hand"

I noticed there was a rounding error which for example caused the seconds hand to not be completely horizontal when at 15 sec, it's fixed in this dll. The actual problem was in lcdbitmap.h, look in the developers forum if you want the modified version of this header.
