Hello Gunite,

A simple digital time screen should be easy enough to build. First, hit the Display Wizard icon to search for and set-up your GX display. Next create a new design, in the Data View tab open up the Date & Time folder, drag the date/time components you'd like to use onto your design, and finally alter the text attributes of a select component by using the Properties tab. Save your design, create a new playlist, add your date/time design file, run, and you're done.

Hello and thank you for the info. All worked except for making it a playlist. When I set it to start up it starts in a funky looking color scheme instead of blue. It works great if I just keep it in the new design stage and just minimize it to the taskbar. Also how do I just have the time displayed instead of the date and time where it scrolls back and forth? the only option I found was military(24hr) time. Is there a way to change that or no? Thanks again

Hello Gunite,

You'll find that if you select the background of a screen, and go to the properties tab, you'll be able to select a background colour. The transparent option will revert to the default background colour set using the GX Defaults utility.

With a little exploration, the QuickStart Guide, and a quick browse around the LCDStudio Forums, you should be able to customize your screens and playlist to suit your taste.

Thanks,
Troy
