Timestamp disable?

Post by dougmccrary » Sat Dec 14, 2019 3:18 am

I want to disable the ZM stamp entirely (from the views). Most of my cameras already display a name of my choosing and a timestamp.
I use passthrough recording, so it's not a problem on replay.
The closest I've been able to get is a single character somewhere inconspicuous.
Is there a way to completely disable it?

Solved - Re: Timestamp disable?

So I saw in 1.22.3 that (back)slash n '\n' was to allow newline. Doesn't work on 1.33.15, haven't seen that it was removed.

Anyway, that lead to finding that alpha chars past '%m' apparently return a null, so one can use %n to have no visible output.

Oh except that until recently there was a bug where it wouldn't save the empty field... fixed that today... might not have pushed it live yet.

Right - wouldn't stay cleared - although filling to default on request might be nice.
I'll be looking for it.
Thanks. :D
