Add Time Drop-Down List

Avatar

11-09-2008

How can I add a drop-down list or pop-up window for time of day. For example, something in the style of the pop-up calendar for the date field.



I would like the user to be able to select a time rather than having to enter it in manually. Thanks.

The drop down will only display strings ...it has no alternate interface. You coudl have a drop down that shows Hours, days, seconds but that is not very nice.

A drop down list with hours would probably work for me. I guess I could create one manually. I was just hoping Livecycle had something built in.

Is there a way to disable the calendar window so as it will not pop up? I just want the user to manually enter time.

Why not use a regular TextField. If you use a Date Field the calendar will always popup.

You can also set the Date/Time field to Time only which will get rid of the popup - Object Palette->Binding->Data Format.
