This is a Clock with Moving hands !!! in Microsoft Access. You normally think of Access an information management system, not a graphics program, but here is a form with lines for hands that move, and, optionally, you can also play sounds. How much better can it get?

Import this fully functional form with all code needed behind it into any database!
The Hour, Minute, and Second hand move as time changes.
The clock lines are updated for new positions, as well as the textboxes that display the numbers.
To keep this simple, I removed other features ... this can also be a popup time picker, timer, or stopwatch.
The download also has a folder of sound files. You can choose from to play each time a second ticks by.
We depend on clocks to help us schedule our lives. So many have moved to digital clocks, but lets not forget the value of time on analog clocks. Not only can you see the time, but you also see the relative position in the day.
Everything you need for the clock is in the code behind the form. That makes it easy to import this clock into another database.
So how was this done? All the code is here, so you can examine it. There are a lot of comments to help you. For a step-through of the code, watch:

(not done yet -- but hopefully will be shortly!)
Maybe, though, you don't want to look at the code. If you just want to use the clock, that is fine too. All you need to do is open the form! The code behind the form does the rest ~
have an awesome day,
