Hey guys,

Can someone please help me to make this text item set only for PM time ?

When I enter a time (i.e 01:00) it automatically sets to AM.(Should be PM).

The format mask of the text item is : HH:MIPM

The client doesn't want to manually type the AM/PM.

But the text item on the Time Out 1 automatically detects the time to AM or PM.

It's format mask is : HH:MIAM

I've tried changing the format mask of Time In 2, but still the same.

All help is appreciated.

Thanks! Cool

Well, you might try the following:
  • TIME_IN_2 should be a DATETIME item, its format set to "hh:miPM"
  • write a WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM on this item as
    :time_in_2 := :time_in_2 + 12/24;
    to force it to accept all values as "PM" (i.e. add 12 hours to a value entered by user)
Perhaps there is another (and better) way to do that, but ... hm, can't think of any at the moment.
