Android Example Analog24hClock - Post #12

It wraps a tiny bit of this - just enough to show the clock. Thought it looked quite nifty...Have done nothing special to it other than painting the hands and the face a bit...:) Lib files are all in the /files folder - copy them to your additional libraries folder. Also posting the Java code - do with it as you like.

Edit - see post #2

Have wrapped some additional functionality of this Github project (although working it is not yet where it should be). Nevertheless, it would be interesting to know if it correctly shows the day/night time (sunrise/sunset) of where you are at present. Please post some pics of your display and if you don't mind state where you are and also if it represents your approximate sunrise/sunset times.

Library files (2 x Jar and 1 x Xml) are in the /files folder of the attached B4A project. Copy them to your additional libraries folder. You might have to enable the GPS of your device to get a current location in case you have been on the move. Else it will use your last known location.
The pic posted herewith is a very good representation of the sunrise/sunset times of where I am at present (i.e Durban, South Africa).

I would say yes

Edit: Yes, approx.
Actually a very interesting pic that you have posted. Does it tell us that where you are the sun is at its highest position above the horizon just before 14h00 (your local time)?

Why you put this in Android Example and not in Library ??
Anyway great ;)
Good job

Getting there. The attached project adds the following:
1. Display the current date (month and day)
2. Add (reading from daytime towards night time on the clock or from lighter shade of grey to darker shade of grey) the civil, nautical, and astronomical twilights for the last known location of your device. You can read up about it here. The total black + shaded area covers sunset to sunrise.

New library files (2 x Jar and 1 x XML) are in the /files folder of the attached B4A project. Copy them to your additional library folder.

It seems that the jsuntimes-1.0.stripped library that this project also makes use of is indeed correct in drawing the different shaded/dark areas as far as their start/end times are concerned for last known locations of a device...;)

Hi Johan, from UK - doesn't appear to have rendered properly?

EDIT - works fine now and accurate - Apologies - helps if I turn on Location services!


This is the V3, and the libs from that zip, running on a Nexus 7

Love what you've done!

Hi Johan Schoeman, you came up with a great idea. You are very optimistic. Thank you very much.
I have a problem on ASUS tablet. When GPS is activated, everything looks good and correct, when GPS is turned off again, the last my location is not calculated.
Of course, I tried "setUsePassiveLocation" and without "setUsePassiveLocation".
Where do you think my mistake is?
