A new Time and Date Widget has been released!

  • Announcement
  • Updated 3 years ago
With the Time and Date Widget you can easily show time and date, or you can configure it to show just the time, or just the date. Whatever works best for your digital signage!

With this release, the Clock Gadget and World Clock Widget will be deprecated and removed from the Store. Please use the updated Time and Date Widget instead.

As always, let us know your thoughts in the community (http://community.risevision.com).

Enjoy!

Is there an analog clock option? We use the world clock for our trading room world clock displays.

Hi Scott, no analog option with the new Time and Date Widget right now. We'll continue to support the analog options that were available with the world clock until we have a viable replacement though. 

I'm going to turn your question into an idea so others can show their interest in an analog option by selecting the "Me Too". 

Thanks!

Hi

Daft question, is there a reason clicking configure doesn't bring up the settings window shown above?

Thanks

Hello,
When i try to add the widget to one of my presentations it adds but will never open the configuration box. Have tried Safari/Firefox on Mac and tried IE on Windows to see if it was a browser issue.
Thanks

Seems to solve it, however shouldn't 24 hour format be HH:MM not HH:MM AM/PM?

No problem Robb,

Last thing I was doing before sending a presentation live was swapping old time for new as well!!

I've tried the new clock widget. Apprently, it shows the current clock as defined by the underlying operating system.  Is there a plan to add the possibility to configure a clock for another timezone ?

Hi Thierry,

Thank you for your feedback! That would be a nice feature indeed. We do offer a world clock widget, but I totally understand if you prefer the look and feel of our new clock.

I am unable to change the font color in the new Time and Date widget.  Always reverts to black?

Never mind (I think).  Changed the font also and then the color changed.

I would like to use a larger font than 96.  I don't see a way to edit the html,  I can't type in a font size in the configure window, and 96 is the largest choice.  Anyone?
