Sneak Peek: ASP.NET Time Edit Control

29 September 2009

Check out this sneak peek video on the upcoming ASP.NET Time Edit control, the ASPxTimeEdit.

ASP.NET Time Edit Sneak Peek

The ASPxTimeEdit gives your websites an editor with a slick user interface to edit date and time values. The control looks and behaves a lot like our ASP.NET spin edit control.

This is a great for your end users because they’re already familiar with how to use the up or down buttons of the control. And with keyboard support, there are now 3 different ways to edit the values:

  1. Type the date and time into the editor
  2. Using the mouse, change the values by clicking on the up/down buttons
  3. Use the keyboard’s tab and arrow keys to change the values

Click the image and watch the “Sneak Peek: ASP.NET Time Edit Control” screencast below. It’s a short 3 minute video that shows the intuitive UI of the ASPxTimeEdit.

The new ASPxTimeEdit control will be released as part of DXperience 2009 volume 3 later this year.

Hi Mehul

Looks great but we now seem to have lost the dropdown Calendar. I realise that this is primarily a TimeEdit but I think what most people want is a combination of the two (I know it’s what I want) so why don’t you just modify the AspxDateEdit Control  to give this functionality then all our legacy apps can be updated by just enabling some new settings.

New Settings/Properties

EditFormat: (Date, Time, DateTime, Custom) Time is New

New: MaxTime, MinTime (00:00 to 23:59 if left blank)

New: SpinButtons as in AspxSpinEdit but with an added “ Visible” property

You would also have to fix the problem with it setting the Time to 00:00 when the date is changed when used in an AspxGridView FilterRow.

This is just my opinion so if others feel the same (or NOT) please speak up now while Mehul is on the case.

I love it.  I hope it will still be easy to add the drop down calender though... be nice if it was an option that was built in..
