B4A Library SingleDateAndTimePicker

A partly wrap for this Github project. Posting:
1. B4A library files - extract them and copy them to your additional library folder
2. B4A sample project
3. LibRes.zip - extract the folder and copy it to the same folder level as that of the /Files and /Objects folders of the B4A project

Try the attached B4A project and lib files. Read post #1 to see what you must do with LibRes.zip. Copy the jar and xml to your additional libs folder

It looks like this:

It crashed with FirebaseNotifications library (version 1.21)
Can you upload a sample project that shows the problem? I am running it on B4A V9.50 and with target SDK set to 28 and I get no errors whatsoever. Maybe something that you have in your project that causes the duplication of Annotations.

Hi Johan,
I like this library and hope I can use it in my project. Thanks.
Here is my sample project. I just select the FirebaseNotifications library without even use it yet it shows error during compiling.

I fixed it by changing the following line at the bottom of xml file (according to xml file for b4aSingleTimePicker).
From:
B4X:
<dependsOn>android-support-annotations</dependsOn>
To:
B4X:
<dependsOn>com.android.support:support-annotations</dependsOn>

We are once again in the very fortunate position where we have another power outage today. First one was from 04h00 to 06h00 this morning. Now again. Will look at your sample project once power has been restored after load shedding.

Old library. I will change the wrapper to reference the new required dependency, recompile it, and post the new library.

Thanks Johan. Issue is resolved. I am also able to add a custom Today value for Chinese locale.

Can you look at this question? I can't select old date or time. It will automatically reset to current date and time.

Is there anyway to get the ticks value , without parsing the string ?
This feature will be useful too.

If you could add AM/PM then it will be nice and look much similar to iOS Datepicker view.

Hi Johan,
I found that I can assign values such as sdtp1.myyear, sdtp1.mydayofmonth, sdtp1.myhour or sdtp1.myminute to the SingleDateAndTimePicker but the values are not selected. It still display current date and time as default. If this is working then it is great.

@Johan schoeman the time in first show, shows the phone time and when we try to write for example:
B4X:
TimePicker1.myhour  =11
TimePicker2.myhour  =23
TimePicker1.myminute=25
TimePicker2.myminute=50
that not working and again both of them shows the now time, is this codes wrong?
