Indicator Behaviors

This article gathers behaviors that force their target controls to display various kinds of system information.

Expanded Clock Behavior

The clock behavior displays system the date and/or time within the target control.

Supported controls

Behavior options

  • Offset - specifies the amount of hours, minutes and seconds that should be added to (subtracted from) the current system time. Negative offset values increase the displayed time, while positive offset values decrease it. Use this option to display time from time zones outside end-users' local ones.
  • ShowMode - allows you to select whether or not both date and time values should be displayed. You can also select whether these two data portions should be arranged one below the other or side-by-side. Note that for digital gauge date and time values are always arranged in a single line.

  • DateOptions - exposes properties that store the fore color, font settings and format string for the displayed date portion.
  • TimeOptions - exposes properties that store the fore color, font settings and format string for the displayed time portion.
