    Is there a way (or could there be a way) for the user to enter a time without having to enter a date i.e. a way to separate the date picker fields?

    I think you should simply use a textbox for that. There is no reason to use a DateTime Picker to get time. DateTime picker is useful since it can open a small pop-up calendar so that you can select a date on it. If you only need the time, there is no such picker pop-up feature for that, so you should simply have a small textbox to get users enter the time.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the prompt reply.

     

    the textbox in an obvious solution, it's just that the time picker adheres to a particular format which is useful when downloading to excel. If no specific format is required then people enter either 7pm, 7:00pm, 21:00, 7 o'clock etc.

    I see what you mean. Yes, that makes perfect sense. I am adding this to our feature requests list. Thanks for the clarification.

    Can we get an update on the status of this request?  I am in need of just having the time.  Also, Is there any way to have the hour-minute seperator be a colon rather than a slash?

    Is there any way you can have a separate date input instead of datetime?
