Smile DEV: pagebar with integrated clock

Hello,

I've modified a bit the sources of the pagebar to include a clock right below the page number.

The result is included in the attached zip file, along with the modified sources (in the tar.gz).

The original pageBar can be downloaded from irex at PageBar.tar.gz.

Only two files are modified on the iliad, the executable itself and one of the icons in /usr/share/pagebar.

As for the clock itself, it will only update whenever there is a page refresh, working in a similar way to the one included on the Hanlin V3.

I've included an installer (which makes a previous backup of the original pageBar and icon) and an uninstaller (which restores the original files).


Hope this is useful for you all!

cheers,
horacio

I forgot to tell you should restart after install/uninstall to load and display pagebar in the correct order

more cheers

Hello Horatio,

Cool little addition! Nicely packaged too! I've installed it. I've sent you some karma...

The installer fails on the Iliad V2 (non book edition) because it has version 2.12 instead of 2.12.1 (which is compatible). You can accept both versions by changing Firmware_Script to 2.12, and changing test in the install script:
Code:
old test: if [ "$Firmware_iLiad" = "$Firmware_Script" ]; then  
new test: if echo $Firmware_iLiad | grep $Firmware_Script - ; then
I had the same problem with the new contenLister (see http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35374 post 30). If you make a new release, you might as well strip clockPageBar to reduce it's size)

Welcome in the developers corner

Adding some clock into the pagebar icon? Quite interesting mod. That's really creative thinking.

clockpagebar UPDATE

Hello all,

just a little update to include hansel suggestions. Thanks!

The new stripped file size is 21572 bytes, just a little smaller than the original

The installer now includes hansel's version test.

The rest is the same

cheers!

Thank you!!

Thanks a million, Horatio! You are one hell of a genius!!
This works perfectly with the iliad V2. I did not even have to reboot to have the clock displayed...

Great addition indeed!!!

Thanks,

Dabon.

Hey horatio, what a creative idea. Using pagebar instead of toolbar. Well done.
A screenshot is attached.

Hi. I love the idea of a clock on my iLiad. So I install the new version because I've a v2 iliad. After I've installed it the menu fell down at the bottom of the screen and the pagebar disappeared and now I can't open any books. I hope any of you guys out there can help me pleas.
