Downclock 1.0.5.5

Postby gwa60060 » Mon Feb 13, 2017 4:41 pm

I've been using this version for a couple of years with the clock timer as well as the inactivity timer. Looking through the doc and ini files, it looks like there is a way to add additional time before the clock timer has expired. At least I'm inferring that from the readme.txt--
[WarnDialog] Seetings for Warn Dialog

AdditionalTime=0
Adds additional time to timer if limit has not been reach
Both "AdditionalTime" and "AdditionalLimit" must be set

AdditionalLimit=0
Additional time add limit
Both "AdditionalTime" and "AdditionalLimit" must be set






But I can't seem to make it work. What I would like is to have the user be able to add more time as specified before the clock timer reboots the PC. This would be independent of the inactivity timer which also reboots the PC. can you explain in a little more detail how these settings work?

The Add Time functionality was added in DownClock version 1.05.5 available on the Beta Downloads page.

[WarnDialog]
AdditionalTime=180
AdditionalLimit=1

"[WarnDialog] AdditionalTime" adds the number of seconds to the timer.
"[WarnDialog] AdditionalLimit" sets the number of timers the addition time will be allowed.

Setting with both to a value of greater than 0 will show the "Add Time" button in the final dialog shown.
