TimePicker Appearance

As of the R1 2022 release, the TimePicker component uses a new rendering. To learn more about why we decided to create a new rendering for our components, see the Components Rendering Overview article.

For a live example of the styling options of the TimePicker, visit the Appearance Demo of the TimePicker.

Options

The TimePicker supports the following styling options:

  • Size—configures the overall size of the component.
  • Rounded—configures the border radius of the component.
  • FillMode—configures how the color is applied to the component.

Size

@(Html.Kendo().TimePicker()
    .Name("timepicker")
    .Size(ComponentSize.Medium)
)
<kendo-timepicker name="timepicker"
                  size="ComponentSize.Medium"/>

The Size option controls the size of the input of the TimePicker. The k-input-{size} class, which is applied to the wrapping span element of the TimePicker, reflects the value of the Size option.

The following values are available for the Size option:

  • Small—small size (applies the k-input-sm class to the wrapping span element)
  • Medium—medium size (applies the k-input-md class to the wrapping span element)
  • Large—large size (applies the k-input-lg class to the wrapping span element)

The default size value is Medium.

<span class="k-timepicker k-input k-input-md">
</span>

Rounded

@(Html.Kendo().TimePicker()
    .Name("timepicker")
    .Rounded(Rounded.Medium)
)
<kendo-timepicker name="timepicker"
                  rounded="Rounded.Medium"/>

The Rounded option controls the border radius of the TimePicker. The class that corresponds to the Rounded option is k-rounded-{rounded}.

The following values are available for the Rounded option:

  • Small—small border radius (applies the k-rounded-sm class to the wrapping span element)
  • Medium—medium border radius (applies the k-rounded-md class to the wrapping span element)
  • Large—large border radius (applies the k-rounded-lg class to the wrapping span element)
  • Full—largest (ellipse-like) border radius (applies the k-rounded-full class to the wrapping span element)

The default value is Medium.

<span class="k-timepicker k-input k-rounded-md">
</span>

FillMode

@(Html.Kendo().TimePicker()
    .Name("timepicker")
    .FillMode(FillMode.Solid)
)
<kendo-timepicker name="timepicker"
                  fill-mode="FillMode.Solid" />

The FillMode option controls how color is applied to the component. The structure of the class is k-input-{fillMode}.

The following values are available for the FillMode option:

  • Solid—applies the k-input-solid class to the wrapping span element
  • Flat—applies the k-input-flat class to the wrapping span element
  • Outline—applies the k-input-outline class to the wrapping span element

The default value is Solid and it is applied to the span.k-timepicker wrapping element through the k-input-solid class.

<span class="k-timepicker k-input k-input-solid">
</span>

Old vs New Rendering

The old rendering of the TimePicker consisted of an input with a single class named k-input nested in a span element. The span element was wrapped in another span element with the k-timepicker class, which we used to apply styling to the component.

 <!-- OLD rendering -->
<span class="k-widget k-timepicker" style="width: 100%;">
     <span class="k-picker-wrap k-state-default">
        <input class="k-input" >
     </span>
  </span>

The new rendering of the component consists of an input element with class k-input-inner nested in a span.k-timepicker element. The span element controls the overall appearance of the component depending on the applied classes and has the following class structure:

<!-- NEW rendering -->
    <span class="k-timepicker k-input k-input-md k-rounded-md k-input-solid">
       <input type="text" class="k-input-inner" value="..." placeholder="..." />
    </span>

The following example demonstrates how to configure the appearance of the component through the styling options:

@(Html.Kendo().TimePicker()
    .Name("timepicker")
    .Size(ComponentSize.Large)
    .Rounded(Rounded.Small)
    .FillMode(FillMode.Outline)
)
<kendo-timepicker name="timepicker"
                  size="ComponentSize.Large"
                  rounded="Rounded.Small"
                  fill-mode="FillMode.Outline" />

Visual Backwards Compatibility

In order to achieve the same look and feel as the old rendering, use the classes available in the new rendering. Visit the CSS Classes Migration and JQuery Selectors Migration sections of the Appearance Overview article for additional information.

If you use a LESS theme, the new rendering will support only the default options.

Previously, you could obtain a reference to the TimePicker element through the k-input class.

$(".k-input") // Returns a reference to the TimePicker element in the old rendering.

With the new rendering, you must target the TimePicker element by using the k-input-inner class.

$(".k-input-inner") // Returns a reference to the TimePicker element in the new rendering.
