Getting Started

  • To add a RadClock to your form, drag a RadClock from the toolbox onto the surface of the form designer.

  • To programmatically¬†add a RadClock to a form, create a new instance of a RadClock, and add it to the form Controls collection.

Adding a RadClock at runtime

RadClock clock = new RadClock();
this.Controls.Add(clock);

Dim clock As New RadClock()
Me.Controls.Add(clock)

The control has three important properties:

  • Value - used to get or set the value of the control

  • ShowSystemTime - indicated whether the control will display the system time

  • Offset - allows you to set time offset - useful to display different time zones

Now let's create a simple application.
1. Add four RadClocks to your RadForm and on the top of each, place a label.
2. Set the labels text to - Sofia, London, New York and Tokyo.
3. In the code behind, set the ShowSystemTime property of the first clock (assuming that your system time show the time in Sofia).
4. For the rest of the clocks, set their Offset properties to: -2, -6, +7:

sofiaClock.ShowSystemTime = true;
londonClock.Offset = new TimeSpan(-2, 0, 0);
newYorkClock.Offset = new TimeSpan(-6, 0, 0);
tokyoClock.Offset = new TimeSpan(7, 0, 0);

sofiaClock.ShowSystemTime = True
londonClock.Offset = New TimeSpan(-2, 0, 0)
newYorkClock.Offset = New TimeSpan(7, 0, 0)
tokyoClock.Offset = New TimeSpan(-6, 0, 0)

Here is the result:
