Auto refresh time in status bar
#1  noap_ 04-21-2016, 03:17 AM

I've implemented all the changes in the readerfooter.lua file pointed out here. After saving the file, disconnecting my Kobo and rebooting it, the time in the status bar still doesn't refresh automatically. Do I have to change another settings as well or enable the option anywhere?

This is what I have in reader.footer.lua

selecting only true or false values

function ReaderFooter:init() self.pageno = self.settings = G_reader_settings:readSetting("footer") or { disabled = false, all_at_once = true, progress_bar = false, toc_markers = false, battery = true, time = true, page_progress = true, pages_left = false, percentage = false, book_time_to_read = false, chapter_time_to_read = false, }
also in settings.reader.lua (footer values may or may not be kept as such, I have it on Kobo but not on Kindle...)

 ["frontlight_intensity"] = 15,	["footer"] = {	["progress_bar"] = false,	["disabled"] = false,	["toc_markers"] = false,	["battery"] = true,	["pages_left"] = false,	["all_at_once"] = true,	["page_progress"] = true,	["time"] = true,	["percentage"] = false	},
And at last, you can tick your customized values on the menu entry "status bar"

One of them should work

The current "Status bar" settings include "Auto refresh time". If I remember correctly, it originally caused some problems, if enabled, but its return to the menu probably means that it's been fixed.

Yup, it's a newish feature available in current nightlies.

Now you speak about it and I realize I have it also - working well - in my status bar.

Yes, default option is disabled, you need to enable it.

But, best way is to download latest nightly, not manually implement changes, in case you miss one or two (or changes in some files and do changes in others).

Anyway, now it should work fine (in latest versions).
