Time Stamp Format

edited October 2009 in Support
Hello, I'm from Brazil, and my english don't so good, but I can survive...
So, my question is:
How be format the label "Time Stamp"?
I try insert "hh:mm:ss", I try too insert "hhmmss" but don't change, the label show "Recording 08:07:56:078" stil. I try too cut the label "Recording" but don't change.
How are de options to change the Format of the label "Time Stamp"?

    It appears that this feature was added to the GUI but never entirely implemented. For now I have added the functionality, but its not very user friendly yet. To download the latest DEVELOPMENT release that has this feature go to

    Important: At this point the defaults don't make much sense, but thats part of a much bigger issue with how it saves user settings. You will need to change the default text color and size to make it appear.

    To customize the timestamp you can now use any of the following:


    Abbreviated weekday name


    Full weekday name


    Abbreviated month name


    Full month name


    Date and time representation appropriate for locale


    Day of month as decimal number (01 – 31)


    Hour in 24-hour format (00 – 23)


    Hour in 12-hour format (01 – 12)


    Day of year as decimal number (001 – 366)


    Month as decimal number (01 – 12)


    Minute as decimal number (00 – 59)


    Current locale's A.M./P.M. indicator for 12-hour clock


    Second as decimal number (00 – 59)


    Week of year as decimal number, with Sunday as first day of week (00 – 53)


    Weekday as decimal number (0 – 6; Sunday is 0)


    Week of year as decimal number, with Monday as first day of week (00 – 53)


    Date representation for current locale


    Time representation for current locale


    Year without century, as decimal number (00 – 99)


    Year with century, as decimal number

    %z, %Z

    Either the time-zone name or time zone abbreviation, depending on registry settings; no characters if time zone is unknown


    Percent sign

    So to accomplish what you want you should probably use %H:%M:%S

    Let me know if it works for you.
