Question

Issue while selecting time from datetime control

Brief Description
Users reported issue while selecting time from datetime control
Detailed Description
Users reported that they are getting confused while attempting to select the time from datetime control. Basically as per the generally used sequence they select the date first and then time and then hoping that it is done but the changed date is not getting selected and they are clicking on close button or outside the control.

Note: We are not considering it as a defect but just checking if there is any solution available for the above stated problem.

Suggestion: Can we have a OK button on the control next to close button.

Steps to Reproduce
Change the time from the datetime control and click outside or click close.

Hi,

After selecting the time, select the date or click on date again it will update.

Hi Kumar,

If i understand correctly your concern is that users are getting confused that if they have to click on close icon of the control or they have to click on the date again to select the value.

For this you can use the below alternative:

In the presentation tab of the cell property select the Display mode as "Dropdown list". This will give you the drop down fields to select from. If you wish you can provide both the calender and dropdown value to the users.

Vikash
