Sets a format string for a status bar section

int sm_sb_format(int sectno, char* format)

The number of the section for which to specify a format string.

A format string for a section.



This function sets the format string for a status bar section. This is relevant only for sections of type SBS_SYSTEM_TIME and SBS_ELAPSED_TIME, as described above.

The second argument, format, represents a format string. Valid date/time format strings are described in the documentation for the function sm_sdtime. Note that an SBS_ELAPSED_TIME section displays a clock that starts at midnight when the section is created. So a format string for a section of that type should be chosen so that it is meaningful in that context.
