Just select hour, minute (or date..) and tap out of the picker. The selected time/date should be in that field...
Thanks Markus, I see that functionality, however it's not very intuitive for new users, and most will have the instinct to hit the insert button once the right date/time is selected, which results in a very different result that leads to more confusion. Hopefully there is a way to make it easier.. easily
Also, does anyone know how we can edit the minutes option on the scroll wheels to show say on every 5, or 15 minutes rather than every minute?
I created helper-fields, type text (or numeric), assigned the desired keyboard - and now, I'm entering time as numeric values. A custom function creates then time-format, etc - just because that time-picker sometimes doesn't serve my needs/wishes..
I think I understand what your saying.. but I think at my level of knowledge know that's going be outside of my abilities.. you made your own custom graphic keyboard with buttons, and when they click them or whatever it just gives the numeric value for FM to add up to make the time in FM normal # format for day or time? Sort of like a bunch of buttons in say a pop up with 1,2,3 etc :30 :45 etc etc?
I created my own date picker using a custom function, plus a slide control located inside a popover. The user sees calendar display of the one month's dates. Swiping it advances the displayed dates forward/back by one month and tapping a date enters it into the field.
And the date picker is set up for easy transport. I can import the scripts, copy and paste it into a new file and the only adjustments are to insert a field reference as a script parameter so the scripts know which date field to reference.
