Clock modes

Analog mode

Small, round, analog clock is displayed in the middle of the LCD. Time readout, if enabled, is displayed at the upper left. If Time readout is in 12-hour (‘12h’) mode, AM or PM will be displayed at the upper right. The Date readout, if enabled, is displayed at the lower left. The Counter, if enabled, is displayed at the lower right. The second hand, if enabled, is displayed along with the hour and minute hands. Digit display, if enabled, places "12", "3", "6", and "9" around the face of the clock in their respective positions.

Digital mode

An imitation of an LCD, this mode shows a Clock comprised of digital ‘segments’. The Date readout, if enabled, is displayed at the bottom, center. The Second readout, if in "Text" mode, is displayed at the top, center; if in "Bar" mode, is displayed as a progress bar at the top of the LCD; if in "Invert" mode, will invert the LCD left-to-right as the seconds pass (a fully-inverted LCD means the entire minute has passed). The Counter, if displayed, is shown at the upper left. The Blinking Colon, if enabled, blinks the colon once every second. 12-hour mode, if enabled, will display the time in a 12-hour format.

LCD mode

Based on the Digital Mode, the LCD mode is another imitation of an LCD. The settings available in this mode are exactly the same as Digital Mode, but they are independent of Digital Mode. For example, you can have the Date Readout enabled in Digital Mode and disabled in LCD Mode

Fullscreen mode

A Fullscreen Clock is displayed. Show Border, if enabled, will draw a small box at every hour position (1 through 12). Invert Seconds, if enabled, will invert the LCD as the seconds pass. Second Hand, if enabled, will draw a second hand among the hour and minute hands.

Binary mode

This mode shows a Binary clock. The hour is displayed on the top line, the minute is displayed on the middle line, and the seconds are on the last line. Circle mode, if enabled, draws empty and full circles, instead of zeros and ones. For help on reading binary, please visit this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_numeral_system

Plain mode

This mode shows a ‘plain’ clock in large text that takes up nearly the whole LCD.


Main Menu

View Clock

Choose this option to exit the menu and return to the current clock mode display.

Mode Selector

Choose this option to display a menu at which you may select a mode to switch to (see above for a description of each mode).

Counter Settings

Choose this option to change your counter settings. Here, you can choose to switch between count up and countdown modes, and specify a start time for countdown mode. To return to the Clock, use the [MENU] or [EXIT] button. NOTE: Your ‘Count Down’ time is not saved to disk along with your settings.

Mode Settings

Choose this option to change settings pertaining to your current Clock mode. An empty rectangle next to any setting indicates that this setting is off or disabled. A filled rectangle next to any setting indicates that this setting is on or enabled. A partially-filled checkbox indicates that the current setting has more than two options. Your currently selected option is indicated by an inverted line-selector. You can use [UP] and [DOWN] to move your cursor in the list of settings. [LEFT] will decrease or disable the currently selected option, and [RIGHT] will increase or enable it. To return to the Clock, use the [MENU] or [EXIT] button.

General Settings

Choose this option to change general clock settings. From this screen you can reset or save your settings. There are also options to toggle the counter display, adjust your backlight settings (which only affect the Clock plugin), change the handling of saving settings (manually: must be done via the ‘save settings’ command; on exit: saves to disk upon exiting the clock; automatically: saves settings every time a settings screen is exited), and an option to disable Rockbox’s Idle Poweroff feature. To return to the Clock, use the [MENU] or [EXIT] button. NOTES: The "Show Counter" option is not mode-specific; Idle Poweroff is not saved to disk.

Help

The Help Screen is two pages long and gives you a brief overview of using the Clock (namely key-mappings). Your current page is displayed at the bottom, center. Use [LEFT] and [RIGHT] to navigate the Help screen. To return to the Clock, use the [MENU] or [EXIT] button.

Credits

Choose this option to view a credits roll. The credit roll sequence includes a number of animations (flying text, etc). Any key will bring you back to the Clock at any time, or you may wait until the credits finish rolling (twelve names).
