TimePicker HtmlHelper Overview

The TimePicker HtmlHelper extension is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI TimePicker widget.

Getting Started

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI TimePicker.

  1. Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC.

  2. Create a new action method which renders the view.

    Example
        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            return View();
        }
    
  3. Add a TimePicker.

    Example
    
            <%: Html.Kendo().TimePicker()
                    .Name("timepicker") //The name of the TimePicker is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the widget.
                    .Min(new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 10, 0, 0)) //Set the min time of the TimePicker.
                    .Max(new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 20, 0, 0)) //Set the min date of the TimePicker.
                    .Value(DateTime.Now) //Set the value of the TimePicker.
            %>
    
    
            @(Html.Kendo().TimePicker()
                  .Name("timepicker") //The name of the TimePicker is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the widget.
                  .Min(new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 10, 0, 0)) //Set the min time of the TimePicker.
                  .Max(new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 20, 0, 0)) //Set the min date of the TimePicker.
                  .Value(DateTime.Now) //Set the value of the TimePicker.
            )
    

Event Handling

You can subscribe to all TimePicker events.

By Handler Name

The following example demonstrates how to subscribe to events by a handler name.

Example

        <%: Html.Kendo().TimePicker()
                .Name("timepicker")
                .Events(e => e
                    .Open("timepicker_open")
                    .Close("timepicker_close")
                    .Change("timepicker_change")
                )
        %>
        <script>
        function timepicker_open() {
            //Handle the open event.
        }

        function timepicker_close() {
            //Handle the close event.
        }

        function timepicker_change() {
            //Handle the change event.
        }
        </script>

        @(Html.Kendo().TimePicker()
              .Name("timepicker")
              .Events(e => e
                    .Open("timepicker_open")
                    .Close("timepicker_close")
                    .Change("timepicker_change")
              )
        )
        <script>
        function timepicker_open() {
            //Handle the open event.
        }

        function timepicker_close() {
            //Handle the close event
        }

        function timepicker_change() {
            //Handle the change event.
        }
        </script>

By Template Delegate

The following example demonstrates how to subscribe to events by a template delegate.


        @(Html.Kendo().TimePicker()
              .Name("timepicker")
              .Events(e => e
                  .Open(@<text>
                    function() {
                        //Handle the open event inline.
                    }
                  </text>)
                  .Change(@<text>
                    function() {
                        //Handle the change event inline.
                    }
                    </text>)
              )
        )

Reference

Existing Instances

To reference an existing Kendo UI TimePicker instance, use the jQuery.data() configuration option. Once a reference is established, use the TimePicker API to control its behavior.

Example
   //Put this after your Kendo UI TimePicker for ASP.NET MVC declaration.
    <script>
    $(function() {
        //Notice that the Name() of the TimePicker is used to get its client-side instance.
        var timepicker = $("#timepicker").data("kendoTimePicker");
    });
    </script>
