How to show only hh:mm in DateTimePicker in 24hr mode?

Hello everyone,

 

Is there a way to make DateTimePicker show only two columns: hours and minutes in 24hrs format (without AM, PM)?

 

The best for me would be to set the mode to Time - but it uses the 12hrs format (with AM, PM). Should I do something with Locales in order to change it, so it would show for example 14:02 instead of 02:02 PM?

 

The other try: the Timer format would also be great if it would not show the "seconds" columnSmiley Wink

 

Thanks for help,

 

Rafal.

Others, including me, have wondered the same. Unfortunately there's currently no way to customized it beyond the very basic few combinations of date/time that they show in the docs.

In my case, I didn't need a really fine-grained time, so I resorted to a simple DropDown with a pre-selected useful list of time values (e.g. 0:10, 0:30, 1:00, 2:00, etc), though that's definitely not optimal.

Thanks, that's a pitty. I tried even to use the minuteInterval =5 but still AM/PM shows up, and in TImer mode it does not work.. I will do it other way, thanks. After a while I think just a range from 5 to 240 minutes will suit me so I will use slider or something like that

I guess it depends on phone regional settings. When i set proper time zone for my location (Europe) and enabled "24hour" switch in time and date settings, DateTimePicker started to display in 24 hour time.

So you had to switch the time and date settings. I need it to work despite the date and time settings. Changing the deafult locale did not work. I guess it is impossibleSmiley Happy I already have a drop down listSmiley Happy
