Select composition -The World Time Widget is an Advanced Widget. This means it requires another layer of customization. In order to build the contents of this World Time Widget (that will be linked to Widget Nodes), you have to hit this Edit button.

Edit Button - Building the World Time Widget Elements

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. Below we added three widgets. One for Hours, one for Minutes, and one for Seconds.

Adding Three Text Widgets for Hours, Minutes and Seconds

Once you've added your desired widget(s) and built the time components to your liking, you'll have to connect these Widgets to the provided Widget Nodes. Your Hours object should be linked to the Hours Widget Node, Minutes object to the Minutes Widget node, etc. 

Connecting Properties to Widget Nodes

Note

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!
