Description

The round clock control is a traditional round wall shaped clock with hour, second and minute hands.  This is different to the Control - Clock (text based) or date which displays a digital type clock.


Simple round clocks

On the designer screen menu, click on 'Insert' then 'Clock (round)'.  This simply adds a round clock directly onto the designer screen.  You can then position and size your Round clock control as required.  Double click the Round clock control to view the properties.  The 'Clock' tab allows you to choose colours or a background image for the clock face, as well as allowing you to customise hands, numbers and time zones.  Please the 'F1' key on your keyboard on this and other property's tabs to get more information.


London, Paris and New York clocks

You can incorporate the classic 3 clock design that displays 3 round clocks with each showing the time in London, Paris and New York.  You can do this by inserting 3 round clocks onto the designer with each having different time zones:

City Time zone
   
London (UTC) Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London
Paris (UTC+01:00) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris
New York (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

You could then add a Text label control under each of the clocks with the name of the city on.  Alternatively, if you had images of the British, French and American flags, then you could use these as the background images for the clock faces.
