OK, correct me if I am wrong, but what you want is a callback function to
happen when you click on the xforms clock ? However the xforms clock is a
passive object and will not call any callback function. The way to get
around this would be to put a hidden button underneath the clock object,
exactly the same size as the clock and call the callback function from
that button. Toy would then be able to get/set the time from this function
to your hearts content.

hope this is of some help

Read the manual - hah - software engineers don't read manuals.
