the new Time measure options and using the registry measure from above with Google apis that use the same format for language allows creating "universal" skins.

So very cool. The formatting reminds me a bit of a simplified regex. Awesome work

Hi guys, it's been a while since I messed up with my skins. I just found about this timestamp function and I assumed I could use it to translate dates into Spanish (my first language). I used to have this date widget and used the Substitute function to handle the translation:
I get I need to use the timestamp function to use the locale format and get translations, but when I use it, the displayed date is not correct.
Code: Select all
[measureDay] Measure=Time Format=%a Substitute="Sun":"Domingo","Mon":"Lunes","Tue":"Martes","Wed":"Miércoles","Thu":"Jueves","Fri":"Viernes","Sat":"Sábado"
Today's Thu, Feb 11. But when I use the timestamp function, it gives random dates, like "sun, Jan 21". If I change the timestamp date, sometimes the days change, and sometimes the day number does. I don't get what I need to do to display the current date. Any help will be much appreciated.
Code: Select all
[MeasureDate] Measure=Time TimeStamp=Monday, January 21 TimeStampFormat=%A, %B %#d TimeStampLocale=en-US FormatLocale=es-MX Format=%A, %B %#d

If you're adding a TimeStamp option to a Time measure, the measure doesn't return the current date and time, but that established by the TimeStamp option. The only thing you have to do is to remove all options related to TimeStamp (TimeStamp, TimeStampFormat and TimeStampLocale).PoochMx wrote: ↑February 11th, 2021, 7:40 pm Today's Thu, Feb 11.

And no, if you're adding a VALID TimeStamp, the measure doesn't return random dates, but as said above, that established by the TimeStamp.
