Suggestion: Display Time, Battery, and Other Data

I’d code it but I’m too stinkin’ lazy to get off my lazy behind and do it

I don’t think it would be possible to code it using the Hopscotch editor, as there are no blocks to calculate battery life yet

Easy way:

  1. Make a text object that says “calculating battery life, this may take a while”
  2. The calculation finishes when the device reaches 0%.

Lol but that would be cool to have.

Trail art not the real thing

Ohh, ok. From the topic I thought you meant like an actual working battery lol

Apps can choose whether to have this or not (default = show status bar I think)

Since Hopscotch is a game / “development” software, it is full screen. Most apps are this way, and I think it should stay this way, where you can quickly check time through the control center. It gives the app a cleaner look.

I’m thinking more of an iPad Variable that could get the current battery, hour, minute, second, month, day, year (the last 5 could replace current hidden timestamp block).

Why would you want to replace it? Wait til Timestamp would still be super helpful even with those.

To put it simply, the number that outputs is way to complicated for kids to understand what it means.

I mean, it’s hidden and there are already quite a few projects using it. I agree that traits or variables would be much easier to understand, and I think that is the best way of implementing it, but removing Wait til Timestamp wouldn’t do any good.

To put it simply, it is the number of milliseconds since Jan 1 1970 (GMT)

That could work out…

…we just have to see.

We’re still waiting for this to happen.

The question is, will it?

no

We don’t know that.

Maybe it’s best if we get THT on here to confirm some stuff.

Otherwise, perhaps I can just email THT.

This most definitely won’t happen and if they are considering it then it’s very low priority

While it’s a good idea, I personally would prefer to not have that information on screen, as I feel it could get tin the way of games and I would rather not have that in the editor either, as it would clutter the top of the screen a bit too
