Schowtime Kual extension, Show current time while reading

Hi,

since my Kual extension to show the titlebar while reading a book (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...6&postcount=49) is not working anymore in the current Firmware (The clock is not updated). I needed to find a other solution.

I updated an old extension started by twobob (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...9&postcount=16 ) with some code from NiLuJe (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...2&postcount=44) and encol (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...postcount=1541).

The extension will print the current time in the upper right corner with every page turn. I hope it works on all devices to find the right screen size and page turn commands.

Power consumption should be minimal. Only disadvantage is that the time is only updated by a page turn. If you need a long time to read a page the time will be wrong.

Thanks for all you hacking that this is based on.

HaPe

Look into the extension/bin folder. There should be a showtime.log that tells you the settings that where detected. Perhaps there is something wrong. I do not own a KT3 to check.

Just installed it to my KV (i.e. copied into extensions/ & started via KUAL) and all seems good - I'm used to the feature of the update only occurring on page-turn, from when I had used my Sony 505!
