    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 · 4 · Last reply by Moloko

    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,

    Bitmap gradient alpha channels broken

    Joshua Fletcher · 1 · Last reply by Trent Hewton

    Inside new komponent, add shape, texture>bitmap. Picked logo with transparent bg. Have Mode(Fit Center, Repeat, Mirror), Filter(None, B&W, Sepia, Desat, Invert, Colorize, Hue), Blur, Dim, Shadow.

    I can choose clear for the filter under the Paint tab but that ignores the alpha channel of the PNG and just clears a square.

    Moving Clip object bug

    Francesco · 2 · Last reply by Lee Fernie

    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?

    Problem with clipping next item in editor and on screen

    Jacek · 1 · Last reply by Jacek

    There is a problem with clipping next item. Previously I thought it was only appearing in editor, but I've just found out that it can happen also on the screen. 

    Anyway, when I set a shape for clipping next object, and that object has a formula animation, which makes it dissapear in certain conditions, the clipping affects next visible object. In this case it happens only in editor.

    The other scenario is when the clipping object has a formula in layer visibility field, in this case clipping also goes to next object, but this time both in editor and screen.

    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

    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

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

    Michael Bell · 7 · 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?

    Autofill should not be provided for Formula editor on Oreo

    Kenneth So · 1 · Last reply by Frank Monza

    As shown in the screenshot below, autofill for password is offered for the formula editor, which usually is not appropriate. What makes it worse is that the BB code buttons, hints or errors get blocked by the prompt, resulting in a poor experience.

    Tested on HTC U11, Android 8.0.0 with Bitwarden password manager.

    I'm also an android developer, and did some quick googling on the Oreo Autofill Framework. Here is what I found that may be useful. There is an attribute "android:importantForAutofill" which can be set to no to disable autofill on that view. But I'm not sure if that

    On/Off global variable: si(screen) function doesn't work when incorporating it into an "auto off" formula

    Josh · 1 · Last reply by Frank Monza

    I'm using an on/off global variable with an auto off formula set to: "$si(screen)!=1$". It's purpose is to reset visiability of certain groups when leaving screen 1. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to turn off when leaving screen 1. I've tested the function itself with a text module to make sure it can detect which screen it is on. 

    Currently using v3.19b623413 RC4 on an LG G5 running Android 6.0.1

    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.

    Global text variables

    Massamino · 4 · Last reply by Massamino

    If you inherit a global text from a main component with a function and you link a text global in a subcomponent (same and different name) to the main component, the formula is inserted as text instead of it being calculated

    main component - global text <name> = $df(YYYY)$

    subcomponent - global text <name1> = (inherit <name> from parent) => shows as $df(YYYY)$ - global text <name2> = $gv(name1)$ => shows as $df(YYYY)$

    Even after save, close and reopen

    Expected behavior: get the value of <name> in <name1> and <name2>
