Hi,

When the user opens the picker for the first time, is there any way to have it default to the current time?

I know I can set DefaultHighlightedTime but the user may spend some minutes in the screen before they select a time so the DefaultHighlightedTime is no longer the current time and is a few minutes ago.

Regards

Anthony

Hello Anthony,

You can achieve this using DateTimePicker in Time picker mode and bind the DefaultHighlightedDate to a property inside the ViewModel which returns DateTime.Now. When you press cancel and open the picker again the defaulthighlight date will be changed to the current DateTime.

I have created a sample to show you how this could be achieved. Download the file and test on your side.

I hope the provided information was helpful.

Hi,

Thanks, that does work however the placeholder text now looks very different because of the new ControlTemplate. Do you have the default values for this so I can set them to match other controls?

Hello Anthony,

This is the default placeholder template:

<ControlTemplate x:Key="Picker_PlaceholderView_ControlTemplate">
    <Grid>
        <Grid.GestureRecognizers>
            <TapGestureRecognizer Command="{TemplateBinding ToggleCommand}" />
        </Grid.GestureRecognizers>
        <Label Text="{TemplateBinding Placeholder}"
               Style="{TemplateBinding PlaceholderLabelStyle}"
               AutomationId="PickerPlaceholderLabel"/>
    </Grid>
</ControlTemplate>
