Perimeter Clock by gone369 Perimeter Clock by gone369
V1.0 1/1/2012

My 4th Clock for Rainmeter. Before I've always done analog clocks, got a little boring so this time I've made a rectangular clock. The idea was fresh and with enough self motivation I've managed to finish it.

How it works:
click -> [link]

Background Picture "Lost and found" [link] by: Dragonfruity [link]


You are able to change the size of the clock to a smaller size and use it to frame around slideshow skins etc. But Remember to un-check "keep on screen" in skin settings when you make the clock smaller. (Just right click on the skin --> settings --> keep on screen).

Again, fully customizable settings in the [Variables] Section of the code.
I've added a preset grey colored clock for convenience.

v1.1 1/12/12
Fixed a problem for the bars when screen resolution was changed to be less than 860 px
Fixed the second hand so it would not be protruding from the frame at corners

v1.2 2/2/12
Added a White colored preset of the clock. Now supports Window's Aero Blur. Check Variables.

v1.3 3/30/12
Fixed Bugs:
1. The glitch between minute and hour transitions
2. Overlapping Hour and minute text at 12:00

v1.4 3/31/12
The upper left corner button now hides the whole clock instead of just the frame. This is particularly useful if users think the clock is in the way of their workspace and only needs to bring up the clock to check the time.

v1.5 1/27/13
Minor bug fixes for protruding second hands.

Feel Free to give comments and feedbacks!~

Awesome job! I absolutely love this clock, but I have a couple of bugs. I've been trying to fix them, but my programming skills are basic at best :p

1. There's some weird gradient fade section in the lower left hand corner of the bar, instead of being a flat blur along the whole left side. Not really sure how else to describe this.
2. When changing minute, the new number flashes momentarily to the previous numbers place before correcting itself. For example, when going from 3 to 4, the fade between works fine, then when it should be showing just 4, the 4 is in the position that 3 just was for a second then goes to its correct place and the fade to 5 begins. This doesn't happen with the hour transitions.

Both of these bugs are happening on all 3 versions of the clock, on the newest rainmeter, running on Vista. HTH :D

Update: having said issue no.2 doesn't happen with hour treansitions, I realised it does something similar - it shows the new number in both slots for a moment.

Also, at 12:00, both 12 and 0 are showing and overlapping - the 0 should be hidden, no?

I fixed the 2nd bug. This was due to a delay from an extra unneeded Calc measure. Added an extra argument for not showing both 12 and 0 at 12:00. I did not quite understand what you meant by a weird gradient fade section. From all I can tell, the bottom left corner looks fine, unless you meant something else. (Note that all bars are transparent, and it might look gradient-ed due to your wallpaper). Again thanks for the feedback.

Wow! Thank you so much. Also, ignore the gradient thing, it's not doing it anymore. It was probably some issue with my gfx card, since I updated the driver yesterday.

Thanks again for fixing this so quick. It's perfect now!

Awesome idea, looks very nice. Great job making it so customizable too!

Thank you! Yes I try to make all my clocks customizable since they're all very conceptual. It's a little more hard work but worth it in the end. Glad you appreciate the extra effort!
