    I am developing an application that requires time entry to be quick and easy for users.  I am using the time picker control in several places in this application and am running into issues when users manually enter a time in the field rather than selecting it from the list of available times.

    For example, if the user enters 0020 into the field they get 8:00 PM rather than 12:20 AM as they expect.  Additionally if they enter 100a they get 10:00 AM rather than 01:00 AM.  The only way they can reliably get the time entered properly is to enter 12:20a or 1:00a and this is neither quick or easy for some users to do.

    I believe on the ASP.NET side if you enter 0020 it does parse as the users expect.

    If someone could provide guidance on how to imlement the control so that it works like the ASP.NET control that would be much appreciated.

    Hi Greg,

     Thank you for the notes. The idea of the time and date parsing, when using the Time/Date pickers, is built upon the outlook parsing logic. Perhaps there are some cases that are not covered by the control itself. We are ware that some use cases appear not satisfy user's requirements. For such cases you can use the ParseDateTimeValue event, where you can set your parsing logic(time) as an argument of theParseDateTimeEventArgt variable. Sorry if this caused you any troubles and write as back if you need any further explanations.
