date time special format

Post by matm » Thu Dec 07, 2017 8:34 pm

Hello

In the Calendar applet, which displays the date, we can use a custom format.
As my dashboard is vertical, I would like to knowif there is a special symbol to insert a line feed.

Default date vertically is HH\nMM. I would like to have HH\nMM\nday/month
But it doesn't seems to work.

I have described here (#5) how to insert a line break. I don't use vertical panels and cannot say, if this works there also.

Perfect !

I used this

Code: Select all

 %H%n %M%n|%d
to also have the date.

Thanks !
