Hello Telerik!

Is there any way to control the format in which the time is displayed and entered? Like for in a format such as h:mm tt?

Thanks very much

Hello Giancarlo Aguilera,

Thank you for your question.

Currently, RadtimePicker  supports only its default HH:mm format. For the future versions we plan toallow control over the  time  format, as for an example HH:mm tt.

As for the displayed  time in the textbox  - itis  in HH:mm format for the moment.  You can enter time  inany other format, however, it will be automaticallyconverted to HH:mm. For instance, you can enter 9PM and this time will be converted to 21:00 or 9AM, which will be then converted to 09:00.

As for the StartTime, EndTime, TimeInterval and  ClockItemSource time formats - RadtimePicker supports TimeSpan objects.Youcan  enter TimeSpan(9,25,10)in the code-behind or “9:25:10” in the XAML. This will be altomatically convertedto 09:25. Itis also possible to enter only hours and minutes in the XAML, like “9:4” that is equal to 09:04.

Greetings,
Boryana

I second the desire to have different time formats. I think the default should use a 12 hour clock with AM/PM and not use military time for default.

Has the AM PM time format been added to the time picker control yet? It is useless without it. Nobody in this country uses military time except the military and the cops.

Thanks

Michael

Hello Michael,

We did not make it for Q3 2008. However, the good news is that your requirement will be fulfilled with the forthcoming Q1 release due in March. I hope that this timeframe is acceptable for you.

All the best,

Hello Boryana from the Telerik team,
 
We are using the Q1 2009 Version of the Telerik Rad Controls and cannot find the property to set the TimePicker to a time display format other than military time.

Hi Marina,

  This behavior is very strange. AM/PM format is based on your PC Culture so you should get AM/PM by default. However you can use the Culture property as follows:
timepicker.Culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-us"); 

If you set it to English(GB) for example it will be using military time. Unfortunately for now this can't be set through xaml.

I have the opposite problem now..  if anyone has any insight into how to easily get a simple HH:MM format without the am/pm I'd really appreciate it.

Hi ewart,

Try setting the RadTimePicker culture property:

radTimePicker.Culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US")
            {
                DateTimeFormat = new System.Globalization.DateTimeFormatInfo
                {
                    ShortTimePattern = "HH:MM", // In case of DisplayFormat="Short"
                    LongTimePattern = "HH:MM" // In case of DisplayFormat="long"
                }
            };
