    Hiya @DonManfred.
    You habe a sub called the following
    Sub TP_TimeChanged(date As Long)
    Surely date should be called something else that is logical, maybe SetTime, SelectedTime, AlarmTime or just anything with the word time included with it. I only mention this as date could easily be confused with Date as it says date but actually returns the time.

    It's a nice library and it works really well, cheers...

    You are right. It may be irritating... Will change it. The lib is a quick and dirty wrap. I made the wrapper in 20 to 30 minutes or so... ;) It was never so easy to wrap a lib like this one...

    One idea for the timepicker: If you want to plan a date, you will most of the time use rounded values, from 5 minutes to 15 or 30 minute steps. So maybe this could be an option to make an step parameter and you get back rounded time values.

    It is just a wrapper for this library. I dont wrote the logic. I just made a wrapper to be used in b4a.
    Maybe you find the formular in this java-file (this is ALL of the library). I did not looked for it actually. But there are some formulas to calc degrees and so

    btw: I like the idea

    Hi Everyone,

    How do I convert the time from the clock into HH:mm?

    Sub PickedTime_timechanged(date As Long)
    ' strPickedTime = the hours and minutes go here.
    End Sub

    Here's the code I used.

    DateTime.TimeFormat = "HH:mm"

        StrPickedTime = 
    "Time picked is: " & DateTime.Time(date)

    Nice Time Picker. I can use it until a B4A KitKat version comes out.

    Is there a way to make it snap to the tick lines on the clock dial?

    It's very tricky to select a time like 17:30 because the time numbers jump around too much to get an exact time.

    The original library does not expose a method for this. sorry, no.

    i know. I dont like it too. That´s why i dont like this library. I just wrote the wrapper out of fun.

    I´m working on nicer ones too but sadly - till now - i just get the date-picker working but not the time-picker from the kitkat version :mad:

    I may try making something that looks and behaves something like the KitKat time picker sometime.
