    Hi, in our project our server expects time values to be a string in 24-hour format (HH:mm). However we want to use timepickers that display 12-hour format with AM/PM to the end user. Right now I am using

      parseFormats: ["HH:mm"]

    and this works fine in terms of displaying the correct value from the database. However the problem is that the value of the field is saving back out to 12-hour format instead of 24. What can I do to display 12-hour format but save 24-hour?

    To have a 24h clock you have to put "HH":

           format: "HH:mm",
           parseFormats: ["HH:mm"]
    and then to get the value, you can use normal jQuery:
