Sub_title: truncated display when in side panel
 

I prefer to have my panel (fbpanel, in this case) on the left side rather than along the bottom.
None of the available extended formats work well for this; they are just truncated.

On some systems, I am able to to write my own layout, including line-breaks, so the date can be better presented in a narrow vertical column.

For example, I might specify
"~%R;%S~\n%d %b %Y \n %A "

~23:30;17~

The current PupClockset does not appear to cater for fitting to a side-panel.

Hi Alex-atian,

I agree, a multi-line display of the Fbpanel clock could be very useful for horizontal and vertical panels.

I'll see what I can do in the next release of PupClockset.

BTW, Fbpanel renders your example as expected if the newline code "\n" is changed to "%n". Smile

Thanks

My, you've been busy updating your fine utilities. Very Happy Running Clockset in Fatdog64-600 b2 using JWM. I can't get the font to set so that it's readable. Of course, magnified it's fair. Sad

Hi Jim,

The xdialog color selector of FatDog64-600b2 is nonfunctional. So, rather than using the 'rainbow button' for selecting the font color, you can manually add any RGB color to the 'color entry box' (such black or grey20), or use a valid hex value (such as #2D2D2D).

Thanks Smile

EDIT: Now fixed, see below.

Thank you Jim.

Unfortunately, my system with intel video is booting Slacko-5.3.5 to a black screen, so testing is not possible until the next Slacko release is available.
