Hello try this code:

Code: Select all

[MeasureTime]
Measure=Time

[MeasurePlus7Minutes]
Measure=Time
TimeStamp=([MeasureTime:TimeStamp] + 7 * 60)
Format=%H:%M 
DynamicVariables=1

Thanks for your suggestion Freeraider,

I have tried to replace the section of clock.ini of illustro/clock with your code but it does not add the 7 minutes to the clock.

Am I doing something incorrectly?


Code: Select all

; ----------------------------------
; MEASURES return some kind of value
; ----------------------------------

;code suggested by Freeraider
[MeasureTime]
Measure=Time

[MeasurePlus7Minutes]
Measure=Time
TimeStamp=([MeasureTime:TimeStamp] + 7 * 60)
Format=%H:%M 
DynamicVariables=1


;[measureTime]
; This measure returns the time in a 24-hour format (i.e. HH:MM).
;Measure=Time
;Format=%H:%M
; For a 12-hour clock, change the Format option above to: %I:%M %p
; Refer to the Rainmeter manual for other format codes.

;[measureDate]
; Returns the date as DD.MM.YYYY
;Measure=Time
;Format=%d.%m.%Y

[measureDay]
; Returns the current day
Measure=Time
Format=%A

Hi all. I'm in the same position as svey001, but I need to add exactly 10 hours to the clock. I tried the solution provided by FreeRaider to see if that worked in adding 7 minutes to the time, but it didn't work for me - both of the clocks (the unaltered one and the time + 7 mins one) are exactly the same. Can anyone give me some help on this?

Thanks.

You have to add 10 hours (meaning 10 x 60 x 60 sec = 36000) to the TimeStamp of the appropriate Time measure. For example in FreeRaider's above code, modify the TimeStamp option of the [MeasurePlus7Minutes] measure to: TimeStamp=([MeasureTime:TimeStamp]+10*60*60)
If you can't figure out how to do this, please post the code of your skin, for specific help.

Hi balala:

Thanks for your reply.

Maybe I didn't explain the problem properly. I need to add 10 hours to the Rainmeter clock, and I thought that by modifying Freerider's code I could get what I need. I had already worked out how to do it. (And thanks for your help there!) But I wanted to test Freerider's code first, without any changes, just to see how well it works. I cut/pasted his code to my Clock.ini and reloaded it. Freerider's code is set up to display the normal (unaltered) time in the top line, and the altered (Timestamp + 7 mins) clock below it. But when I reloaded the Clock.ini file, both clocks displayed exactly the same unaltered time...in other words, it was as though the code for the additional 7 mins was being ignored. So there is no point pasting the code here - it is exactly the same as Freerider's code. I can't see why it wouldn't work.

Thanks again

What Rainmeter version are you using? It's an old one?
Because FreeRaider's code works perfectly with the latest version, as you can see in the attached screenshot:
