A day and date digital clock. You can make your Windows tablet work for you even when you aren't actually using it! :mrgreen:
Thanks agaIn to Mr. K for answering all of my questions. Sometimes what I type does not equal what I think I have typed!

The text on the right side is right-justified using the #textwidth() function.

You will need the Ranchers font, downloadable from 1001 Fonts (1001fonts.com)

It is Ok when running full screen.
But I usually run SPL not full screen, so I get what I show below.
It will be better if output text will be autosized.

Is there a simple autosize procedure?

I admit, I like the freedom of using the whole screen. I even shut off the Windows taskbar. I hope I will not be visited by the Windows police! :lol:

Screen sizes, proportions and rotations can be different, so this should be taken into account when defining text size and placement.
It will be even better if it will autofit the screen when screen size is changed during runtime.

I added a variable fs as the second line of code. A value of 1 gives my preferred size. Set the value to a fraction to scale all text smaller, or a value greater than 1 to make it larger. (.5 and 2 shown)

I will continue to work on automatic features for this program, such as adjusting to screen rotation and size.
