Create a time picker input field. This provides a simple mechanism to allow the selection of a time.


Add the fliplet-ui-datetime dependency to your screen or app libraries.


To set up a time picker, use the following markup.

<div class="form-group fl-time-picker" id="target">
  <i class="fa fa-clock-o fa-fw"></i>
  <input type="time" class="form-control">
  <input type="text" class="form-control">
  <i class="fa fa-times fa-fw"></i>

The time picker can be initialized with a preset value by giving the type="time" input a value.

Then, instantiate the time picker field using the Fliplet.UI.TimePicker constructor.

var instance = Fliplet.UI.TimePicker('#target');


Fliplet.UI.TimePicker(el, options)
  • el (String|Node|jQuery) Selector or node for the target element
  • options (Object) A map of options for the constructor
    • required (Boolean) If true, users will not be able to clear the field after it’s given a value. If false, a “X” icon will be visible to help users clear the time field. (Default: false)


The time picker instance returned by the constructor contains the following property.

  • $el (jQuery) The jQuery object containing the time picker instance.


The time picker instance supports the following methods.


(Returns String)

Gets the value of the time field in 24-hour HH:mm format, or an empty string if there is no valid time value.



Gives the time picker a value.

instance.set(value, triggerChange)
  • value (String) New time value in 24-hour HH:mm format
  • triggerChange (Boolean) If false, the time picker value will be set without triggering the change event listeners. (Default: true)


Add an event listener to be triggered when the time picker value changes.

  • fn (Function<String>) Callback function to be run when the time picker value changes. The function is called with the instance as the this context and the new time value as the parameter.
