Property Settings

As seen above, select the "World Time" tab in the Property Panel to update this widget's following property types: Properties.



Two-Digit - Enabling Two-Digit format

Time Format - Select either 24Hrs or 12Hrs format

Time Zone - Select your time zone

Select composition - Select the "Edit" button to dig into the Subcomposition of the Widget. This is where you can build your time elements. Once clicked, add your time elements and link each object to the related Widget Node. Hours object should be linked to the Hours Widget Node, Minutes object to the Minutes Widget node, etc. 


Time visualization does not end with a simple text display of mins/hours/secs. The world Time Widget can be linked to any graphic objects and supports any animation. Time progress can be nicely displayed as animated in circles, scaling bars, or flashing dots. Or simply as the handles of an analog clock. All objects and animation types are supported!
