Getting Started Overview

This tutorial will walk you through creating a Web page that uses RadTimePicker control. It shows how to:

  • Use a RadTimePicker control

  • Apply skins to change the overall look and feel of the control

  • Apply styles to tweak the appearance of the controls.

  • Configure the selection and navigation behavior of the RadCalendar control.

  • Add messages to appear when nothing is entered in the RadTimePicker.

  • Specify formats for display and editing.

Adding a RadTimePicker control

  1. Drag a RadTimePicker control from the toolbox onto your Web page,below the RadDateTimePicker control.

  2. In the RadTimePicker properties pane, set the Skin property to "Outlook" so that it matches the RadCalendar and RadDatePicker controls:

  3. In the Behavior section of the properties pane, expand the DateInput property and configure the embedded RadDateInput control:

    • Set the DateFormat property to "h:mm tt". This is the format string for when embedded RadDateInput control has focus (when the user can enter its value).
    • Set the DisplayDateFormat property to "HH:mm". This causes the embedded RadDateInput control to format its value using a 24-hour clock when it does not have focus.
    • Set the EmptyMessage property to " Enter a Time ", providing a prompt when the value of the RadTimePicker control has not been set.

    Setting empty message

  4. Expand the TimeView property. This lets you configure the properties of the embedded RadTimeView control that acts as a popup for choosing time values. Set its BackColor property to "#DDEEFF", just like you did for the RadDateTimePicker control.

Running the application

  1. Run the application. The RadTimePicker control shows an empty message, because no value has been assigned yet. The "Outlook" skin is used by the control.

  2. Select a time value for the RadTimePicker control. Note the formatting changes depending on whether the controls have focus.
