    Problems with the location settings

    NakaRB · 4 · Last reply by Frank Monza

    KWGT was installed from Play Market. But there were problems with the location settings. They do not work correctly. For example, Kuching (Malaysia) time should be GMT+08, but in fact it turns GMT+05. Perhaps this is due to the fact that before I tried to set the location for Fihalhohy Island (Maldives), where the time zone is really GMT+05 (in general for the Maldives, this island should be GMT+06, but I can not set up the correct time zone in settings because it is not saved correctly). Finally, I could not set locations themselves correctly. From the first time any of

    For loop does not play well with wget

    libnaniam · 3 · Last reply by Kev Mitchell

    An extensive report of the problem can be found here, but the general idea is that fl (for loop) does not play nicely with wg (wget). I tried to iterate through an array inside of a json file, but there were two problems:

    1. wget cannot parse variable "i" inside of square brackets ("[ ]")
    2. if we make the array call static (jsonArray[0]) within the for loop and iterate n amount of times (1 through n), it will display jsonArray[0] more than n times

    Animated flashing in objects with animate rotation when it is very near the borders

    Melquisedec Daniel · 1 · Last reply by Frank Monza

    I think there is a bug in animations and positions. When the circle is in center the rotation animation is fine, but if I put the circle near the border the behavior is wrong. why the circle flashes if the only animation is rotated?

    overlap group rotation bug

    Dukevyner · 1 · Last reply by Jacek

    Reddit user /u/no_you_hang_up seems to have stumbled apon a bug, and I have investigated it; details below

    The user posed an export with overlap groups that contain circles and icons, the groups rotate inverted, react on a global switch. But the icons were not able to be touched. My initial thought was that another item might be blocking the icons.

    But apon further investigation I discovered the issue seems to be with the rotation animation. In the linked export,

    I have created 2 copies of the reddit users overlap group. The first, the rotation amount is 100, the second,

    Scroll animation speed not updating

    James Waters · 1 · Last reply by James Waters

    I have an image that is animated to scroll with the background. When the phone is put in landscape mode, I want it to scroll at a different speed.

    I am using a formula to do this: $100 - si(land) * 90$. In previous setups this has worked perfectly, but for some reason in my newest project, this doesn't work.

    Going from portrait to landscape the scrolling speed stays the same, until I go into KLWP itself, go to the formula in question, open it and confirm it, then save. Only then does the scrolling speed change. The same problem

    Global text variables with calculated value broken when used in other formulas

    Michael Bell · 5 · Last reply by Massamino

    Let's say you have this global texy variable


    MyVariable = $bi(temp)$°$wi(tempu)$

    And I want to incorporate it in another text box

    $tc(n2w, gv(MyVar))$


    The editor shows literal value of the variable ( $bi(temp)$°$wi(tempu)$)  , yet the actual wallpaper shows the expected "thirty-five°C"


    How do I get around this?

    Moving Clip object bug

    Francesco · 1 · Last reply by AJ

    When you have a element with the property mask "clip all" or "clip next module", if it is in the main folder, it can be moved through the x y offset and it works fine.

    If it is in an overlap group, you need to move it with the padding options. In that case, the element will only move upward and leftward. When its supposed to go downward and righward, it will take the opposite direction.

    Can this be fixed?

    Global switch in subkomponent can only be linkt to a global color

    Massamino · 4 · Last reply by Frank Monza

    When you put a komponent in another component and want to link the subcomponents global switch to a global switch in the main component, it doesn't work. It can only connect to a color global var in the main component.

    Kustom will not update weather/json if display is set to never turn off

    Madelena Mak · 3 · Last reply by joe

    I dedicated and set up an Android tablet to run only KLWP (yes, I love KLWP that much), and I found that Kustom will not update weather and wg JSONs, if the display is set to Never Sleep, regardless of the update interval. When I turn off the screen and turn it on again, KLWP will immediately auto update.

    Android version: KitKat 4.4.4
    Tablet: Nuvision TM1318

    Center formula

    Joshua Fletcher · 0 · Posted

    For the BG Scroll action setting a formula to determine the CENTER attribute is flawed in a couple ways.



    This is incorrect.  I haven't tested them all but using a formula like SCREEN$si(screen)$ returns SCREEN1, SCREEN2, etc but doesn't work.  I have to use Screen $si(screen)$ to return Screen 1, Screen 2, etc then it accepts it as a valid entry.


    The second half of the problem:

    si(mindex) on global var

    Massamino · 2 · Last reply by Massamino

    When I set a global variable to use si(mindex), and I use it on a subitem, it takes the mindex of the subitem instead of the komponent.

    Problems with Steps

    Christoph Portmann · 3 · Last reply by Ken Konkel


    This is a translation from German.

    I bought the KWGT "Widget Pro" and am thrilled.
    I have the step counter displayed in the widget. Now I have a problem.
    I have "Google Fit" installed. However, the number of steps in the widget does not match those of the app. There are fewer and fewer steps.
    I would actually like to use the data from another app as they are more accurate. For example, from the app "Pacer". How is that possible?
    Thank You

    Clipping problem in overlap groups

    Quin Smith · 1 · Last reply by Ken Knechtel

    If you set a shape mask to a clip, that is inside an overlap group the padding under position does not work correctly anymore.

    For example if you make a square anchored in the center and give it 50 padding from all directions than the square stays in the perfect center as it should, but if you than make it into a clipping mask it moves to the top left corner of the area designated by the padding (refer to attached screenshots).

    KLWP wallpaper off center after phone reboot

    Simon Wilkinson · 2 · Last reply by Frank Monza

    Just purchased KLWP & KWGT - great apps! Only a very minor issue but each time I reboot my phone, my 3-screen KLWP wallpaper always starts off focused off-center. So the center screen (2 of 3) is displayed halfway off the screen. As soon as I swipe left or right it aligns itself correctly until I reboot again. Any idea why this might be?
