Digital Clock

Your browser is not Java enabled.


This is my first applet-cum-application. This digital clock displays the local time in 24-hour format. Hours, minutes and seconds are displayed as 7-segment BCD-LED digits with segments tapered at both ends.


Usage: Applet

Applet tags Property Syntax Default
fColor Foreground color "r,g,b" "0,255,0"
bColor Background color "r,g,b" "0,0,0"
sWidth Segment width "w" "6"
sHeight Segment height "h" "7"
sThickness Segment thickness "t" "2"

Usage: Applcation

java DigClock -bg "100,100,100" -fg "200,200,200" -sw 6 -sh 7 -st 2

Command-line arguments Property Syntax Default
fg Foreground color "r,g,b" "0,255,0"
bg Background color "r,g,b" "0,0,0"
sw Segment width "w" "6"

The height and width of segments may differ significantly from the set values to match the application/applet size. The difference will be wide when the application is resized.
