[archive] continuous time display

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 28 September 2005]

Does anyone know if there is a way to continuously display the time on a screen.

I have a data input screen that has a date-entry field with a display format of time. The time is updated when the screen is refreshed but I'd like it to update and display the time continously - like it does on my Windows screen.

I'm using the Inquire function to get the time from the system. But I allow the user to update it manually when necessary.

I'm using Thin Client to connect Windows PCs running XP to an HP/UX box.

Thanks in advance,
JC
