OS3.2 Titlebar clock

Is there a way to display time in the titlebar without hacks?

Yes, install DateVar from Aminet and follow the enclosed instructions.

Or for something very simple get screentime again from aminet. Very simple and easy small utility adding the time date etc on the upper right corner of yr taskbar.

The only downside to ScreenTime is that (since it opens a tiny window) if Workbench needs to close and then reopen, you'll need to disable/remove it from Commodity Exchange, then enable or re-run it again afterwards.

Have you tried BarClock? It shows the date as well as the time on the bar.

DateVar used the new OS3.2 option to embed Env-vars in the title bar. It does not need an overlay or special treatment when closing Workbench e.g. after changing the screen mode .

Is it possible to configure this DateVar based clock so that it stays in a designared place before the screen cycle gadget, and does not disappear as soon as you (for example) start composing the HippoPlayer playlist?

Once I used the Gui4Cli package to not only place the clock on the Workbench tittle bar, but also network availability status, and buttons to launch some commonly used software - like iGame or DirectoryOpus4. It would probably be possible to place a progress bar showing memory availability too with just a bit of coding (I would have to check the documentation, I haven’t played with this package since quite some time), like MorphOS does.

Not this time; no tab-support, yet.
