I prefer c. It is more elegant, while d is more "heavy" and "aggressive".
I guess an additional check on a real device would be needed ..

oops, I meant "c is better than d". I prefer non-bold.

and option e: big but not bold.

I prefer this one. And yes, I have to check it on the real device.

On the other hand, I've restored the original menu icon finally, the ~12 pixels saved wouldn't allow to add more icons, so it's better to keep modifications simple.

I will update bitbucket repo with this code in over 15 mins.

hmmm, my wife (active user) says that the smaller one is better .. "the big version drives too much attention"

I can say the small font lays on the same line as the battery, 3G and the bucket, while the big one is .. too big

The font type, size, boldness etc etc is purely personal preference. Maybe a better solution is using a config file.

I've already pushed the new code to bitbucket if you want to play (option e).

I loaded e) on my DR800 and it looks great.
If anyone is brave enough uncompress attached file, toggle dr800+ v1 to restore IREX firmware, copy popupmenu.dr800+ into _dr800+ folder, toggle dr800+ again to install new components, reboot your device, and finally enjoy your new clock.

Anyway let's restart the poll: a, b, c, d, e?


Btw, a question for DR1000 owners: when in a note, if you select another tab does the note close?
I've been looking at notepad sources and there is something strange there...

I prefer not to add configs for such a minor (or even silly ) issue.
Let's include the more popular (anyway, I know how to modify and recompile the code )

All right, not a problem for me. (I have already changed the code to my preference )

So I vote for b. And BTW, I have put all the options here so it is easier to compare and vote.

I have tried the clock feature on my device, everything looks good except that the clock doesn't update by itself. It does update on a forced refresh such as menu show/hide. The wired thing is that this self refresh works fine on the emulator.

No they do not close, you can even have multiple notes open at the same time.

I guess the device will go into 'suspend-mode' after 5 seconds and will only 'wake-up' from external events (buttons, stylus). Does it update the clock when switching pages?

Same here. I'll add a forced refresh this night. You expect this to solve the problem.

See: \sysd\src\display.c function: parse_gtk_message() line 686 to 692. Putting an GtkEventBox around it with the correct size might give you the desired screen update. Same as it is done in \popupmenu\src\statusbar.c function: add_toolbar_item.
Or construct a specific update message for sysd...
I assume the update currently falls into a category 'too small to update'.

I think the answer is in the IREX doc, 4.3.3 Refresh Hooks:
"A simple hook is added to GTK's main loop event handler which triggers a screen update on certain expose events. We only perform an update if the expose event was emitted by a top level window, and if the expose is not the result of some intermediate process (such is the case with X configure events). This results in the minimum number of display updates, but it ignores updates to GtkEntry fields because they are implemented as GdkWindows (which are ignored, if they're not top-level)..."

In our case the GtkLabel is contained in a GtkButton, maybe that's the reason it doesn't refresh.

So I will try a gtk_widget_queue_draw() in first place and if it doesn't work either, I'll try the functions from liberutils (display_utils) [1] or a direct ioctl call [2].

Btw, if any of you haven't fully read that thread is really interesting.
