Time Picker

The Time Picker control allows users to input the desired time in a microapp by selecting it from a clock widget. You have the flexibility to either set the user's device time as the default time or leave the Time Picker empty when presenting it to the user. This versatile control can serve multiple purposes, such as setting meeting times or making reservations.

Binding Data Options

To populate data in the Time Picker control, you have several options for binding the time. You can provide the time using static data options in either the UNIX timestamp format or the JavaScript Date object format.

Static Data Options

Example using UNIX timestamp format:

UNIX timestamp in milliseconds.

Time: 1627868341000

Example using JavaScript Date object format:

JavaScript Date object.

Time: new Date("2023-08-02T09:39:01")

For instance, consider a scenario where you are building an appointment scheduling application, and you need to set specific times for appointments. You can use either the UNIX timestamp format or the JavaScript Date object format for data binding.

If you want to provide the time dynamically, you can use the Bind Data Option, then select Time Picker -> Quick Select -> Custom JS, and write a JavaScript function to retrieve the desired time. Below is an example code that utilizes the Moment.js library for the UNIX timestamp format:

function JSCode(output) {
var time = moment().set({ hour: 9, minute: 39, second: 1 }).format('x');
output = time;
return output;

For providing the time using the JavaScript Date object format:

function JSCode(output) {
var time = new Date("2023-08-02T09:39:01");
output = time;
return output;

When binding data to the Time Picker control, consider the format of the data: UNIX timestamp or JavaScript Date object. Choose the appropriate Submit format in the Input Properties of the control: UTC for UNIX timestamp format and LOCAL for JavaScript Date object format. This ensures accurate handling of times based on the data format.
