I had a need for a way to see the current time quickly on my PC screen. And I somehow don't like the default system time applet. So I wrote this Digital Clock utility in Delphi - Turbo Delphi Explorer, to be precise. Here is a screenshot of the clock:
It's very basic - no frills. But it does what I need. I just run it after starting up my machine , then whenever I need to check the current time, I just Alt-Tab to that window.
I could also put it in my startup folder so it would start automatically after the machine boots.
And it only needed 3 lines (*) of Delphi code!
(And even that can be brought down to 2 lines - heh :)
(*) Other than the UI design, but that was a snap too, and involves no code - I just used the Delphi form designer.
