InputfieldTime by Netcarver

Adds a fieldtype and Inputfield for MySQL TIME fields.

FieldtypeTime & InputfieldTime

Modules for ProcessWire that allow easy input of times in various formats. The value is stored in the DB as an SQL time field with values between about +800:00:00 and -800:00:00 but the display and input format can be chosen by the user.

Supported Input/Display formats


The following input and display formats are supported.

  • 'HH24' Hours (0-24)
  • 'HH24MM' Hours (0-24) & minutes (00-59)
  • 'HH24MMSS' Hours (0-24), minutes (00-59) & seconds (00-59)
  • 'HHH' Hours (Integer 0-800)
  • 'HHHMM' Hours (0-800) & minutes (00-59)
  • 'HHHMMSS' Hours (0-800), minutes (00-59) & seconds (00-59)
  • 'MMM' Minutes (Integer)
  • 'SSS' Seconds (Integer)
  • 'MMSS' Minutes (00-59) & seconds (00-59).

The fieldtype will use the chosen format to work out if actual input is incomplete and try to autocomplete the missing parts. For example, if you have a field setup to HH24MM and only type '9' into the Inputfield the fieldtype will assume you mean '09:00' (that is, 9 in the morning) and use that as the final value.

You can configure if colons are to be used between parts in the displayed output. So you can choose between '0900' and '09:00'.

Comparison in selectors


If you wish to use a formatted time in a selector then you need to have the time in your selector string use the DB formatting of 'HH:MM:SS' as the comparison is done by the DB. You can use the date() function directly or you can use the utility function formattedStringToTime()...

// For a value with Hours and Mins...
$selector_time_string = date('H:m:00', $time); // or...
$selector_time_string = FieldtypeTime::formattedStringToTime(date('H:m', $time), 'HH24MM');

It will often be easier to work with date() directly.

Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.
