    Using DateTime Picker can I set the preferred AM/PM on display

    Asked by braceletofhope on October 31, 2010 at 02:12 PM

    It appears that in development mode I can choose either AM or PM as the default to display, however, if I choose PM, when the form displays I always get AM. Is this a bug or missing feature? Thanks.

    There is a caching problem I think. We will look into that.

    It appears that the feature you're asking for is actually inexistent. The Default Time function prepopulates the time and date field with the current time on the visitors' computer. If you right-click on the time and date field then click Properties, you will actually see this message:


    Editing the time inside the form builder will not work, thus, changing AM to PM will not work either. The form will always display the current time.
