Module: FieldtypeTime & InputfieldTime

Recommended Posts

Am I right that this field cannot be used in a FormBuilder form? I'm trying to make a form with a start and stop button to calculate time students spend on one of our lasercutting machines. 

[edit] In the meantime I found it. Now I just wanted to know if I can have the time 'auto fill in' in a field 'laser_start' as soon as a new form is created, like I can with a Datetime field. And also have a button or picker to enter the time in a field 'laser_stop' when I edit the page created by Formbuilder.

Another issue: the Time Format always jumps to 'Minutes (00-59) & seconds (00-59).' when I choose 'Hours (0-24), Minutes (00-59) & seconds (00-59)' upon save in the Details tab.

I'm also having this issue, which isn't letting me use the date() formatting due to this. 😞 Also when it does jump to that, the time selector GUI doesn't work.

@Tom. For what it's worth, this is how I solved my problem, maybe it helps you to find your solution.

	$laserdate = date('d F Y', strtotime($feature->lendout_time));
	$lasertimestart = date('H:i:s', strtotime($feature->lendout_time));
	$lasertimestop = date('H:i:s', strtotime($feature->return_time));
	$start_time = new DateTime($feature->lendout_time);
	$since_start = $start_time->diff(new DateTime($feature->return_time));
	$minutes = $since_start->h * 60;
	$minutes += $since_start->i;
	$lasertime = gmdate("H:i:s", strtotime($feature->return_time) - strtotime($feature->lendout_time));
	if($feature->return_time) {
	echo "<li><span class='verdana'>{$laserdate} ->  {$studentspage->title} | {$feature->machine} => <b>{$lasertimestart} -> {$lasertimestop}</b> = {$since_start->h}:{$since_start->i}:{$since_start->s} or <font color='green'><b>{$minutes} minutes - done</b></font></span>.</li>"; 
	} else {
	echo "<li><a href='{$feature->url}'><span class='verdana'>{$laserdate} ->  {$studentspage->title} | {$feature->machine} => <b>{$lasertimestart} -> <font color='red'>busy</b></font></span>.</a></li>";

Thanks for the post.

If you only need to output in 12 hour format, you can probably do it like this within your template files (untested)...

# Pull the values from our page's time field...
$timeparts = FieldtypeTime::getTimeParts($page->timefield);  # Adjust name of field as needed.

# Adjust the sign
$sign = (empty($timeparts['sign']) ? '+' : '-';

# Create a time, based on the start of today, with the offset hours, mins and seconds from the timeparts.
# See: https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.strtotime.php
$time = strtotime("today $sign {$timeparts['hours']} hours {$timeparts['mins']} mins {$timeparts['secs']} secs");

# Format it for output as needed, in this case as 12hours with lowercase am/pm marker.
# See: https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php
echo date("ga", $time);

      Status update links (inside this thread) for SnipWire development will be always posted here:
      If you are interested, you can test the current state of development:
      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)

      Hi! I've created a small Inputfield module called InputfieldFloatRange which allows you to use an HTML5 <input type="range" ../> slider as an InputField. I needed something like this for a project where the client needs to be able to tweak this value more based on 'a feeling' than just entering a boring old number. Maybe more people can use this so I'm hereby releasing it into the wild.  
      What is it?
      The missing range slider Inputfield for Processwire. 
      What does it do?
      This module extends InputfieldFloat and allows you to use HTML5 range sliders for number fields in your templates.
      It includes a visible and editable value field, to override/tweak the value if required.  
      Min/max values Precision (number of decimals) Steps (Read more) Manual override of the selected value (will still adhere to the rules above) Usage
      Clone / zip repo Install FieldtypeFloatRange, this automatically installs the Inputfield Create new field of type `Float (range)` or convert an existing `Float`, `Integer` or `Text` field. To render the field's value simply echo `$page->field` Demo
      A field with Min=0, Max=1, Step=0.2, Precision=2

      Field with settings Min=0, Max=200, Step=0.25, Precision=2

      Make the display-field's size configurable (will use the Input Size field setting)  Hopefully become redundant If it's usable for others I'll add it to the Modules list  
      - Fix issue where setting the step value to an empty value created problem with validation
      - Make the display-field optional 
      - Initial release

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. Field widths entered into the Template Field Widths inputfield are only applied if the Edit Template form is submitted with the Template Field Widths inputfield in an opened state. "Collapsed" is the recommended setting if you think you might also use core inputs for setting field widths in a template context. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.
