Additional Selector Types - Time & Color

Postby john1598360627 » Sat Apr 06, 2024 3:04 am

When working on the Fullcalendar2, I realized there could be some more useful selector elements that would be a great help for user experience.


TIME
Similar to the calendar element which lets you select a date, having an element let you specific time of day via a clock would be nice.

This would work great with the Fullcalendar2, deciding on a specific time for an event's start & end date.

COLOR
A visual color selector that the user can get a specific hexadecimal value.

Fullcalendar2 event's can have different background colors. So having the user have a way of changing it themselves would be good.


THOUGHTS?
If these are already possible somehow within Servoy let me know!

Hi John,

All of this is already available.

For time picker you have 2 easy choices:
1) Use a textbox component, set the input type to 'time' and attach a date type dataprovider.
2) You already used the calendar component to select the date, if you change the input format to 'HH:mm' (24-hour clock), it will popup with just the time picker.

To achieve a color picker it is similar to option 1 of the timepicker.
This time set the input type to 'color' and attach a string type dataprovider.

Hope this helps.

Oh wow, I did NOT realize this was available, thank you!


.... by the way, is there a list somewhere of all possible Input Types? I have checked the wiki but don't see a place referencing these but I must be missing where it says them all!
