OK, after I solved my battery pack problem, I uploaded my first version of my .PCF and bugfixed some problems. Now I'm very happy with it for the moment.

I'm using a heavily modified Tonk's PCF. Actually I just use his graphics and some of the basic interfaces.
But I want to have a big clock and date just where Daniel has put those white on black mini icons in the upper screen.
Is it possible to resize the Standard Clock-Item of the ProntoEdit NG Software or replace it with custom Clocks/Dates?


PS.: Oh, and thx for the great Work with your PCF Daniel!

Search this forum for last 4 years for +custom +battery +icon and you will see some other examples of what I'm discussing below.

Before doing any of this, make sure you have a backup of your Config File prior to manually editing!!!!!

In order to do this, you will need to open your PCF (it's a zip file) in either WinZip or WinRar. Extract the file 'ConfigEdit.xml' from the zip and then edit it with a text editor. Inside this file, search for TIMESTATUS or DATESTATUS and you will then see the markup you need to change. There specifically will be a font size an text color listed. Following edit, simply drag the ConfigEdit.xml file back into the zip. Note that there may be a duplicate file with a path of '\' after dragging this file back in. If so, remove the duplicate file and leave the one you just edited.

OK! I managed to get this to work!
With a little modification of Daniels Top Graphic (Had to change transparency from white to black) the clock will show up in big and white!

Thanks guys!

Now, I won't get annoyed anymore if I don't wear a watch while watching DVD Movies ;)


**EDIT**

Just wanted to post a picture of the result!

Just wish there was a way to really customize the clock, meaning font type, not just size and color. :(
