Displaying AnimationViewModel date, time and multiplier without the clock?

I have created my own toolbar which handles the clocks events such as the pause, forward and backwards functions. I now want to display the multiplier, date and time in this toolbox but can't seem to find a way of doing this?

I have been looking at the dateLabel, multiplierLabel and timeLabel for this is that the right area or is there another way of achieving this?

I have managed to get this to display now however the time and multiplier are not dynamic they do not change as they do on the clock?

dateLabel, timeLabel, etc. are observable properties [1], which means that they can notify subscribers when their value changes. In Cesium, we use Knockout with the ES5 plugin [2] to implement this. The Animation widget uses Knockout data binding to update the UI when the properties change, but you can also subscribe to the changes and update your display manually:

function dateLabelChanged(value) {

// value is the new value of dateLabel, update your display to display the new value however you need to


// attach the listener to dateLabel

Cesium.knockout.getObservable(animationViewModel, ‘dateLabel’).subscribe(dateLabelChanged);

// set the initial value immediately


You can register other listeners for the other properties to update the display for each of them in the same way.

I am currently displaying each using something like this:

var date = new Text();

How do I incorporate this with the way I am using?

I've got it! Thanks very much.
