HHMM Range Filter

Description

This filter control is commonly used to filter datasets based on a specific field. This is a single-field filter that allows time (in hours and minutes) range selection, which includes both start and end times. A time picker is provided for each field of the control. There is also an option to enable and disable the start (From) and end (To) time selectors. This is suitable for string field types (field identified for Filter) that follow the 24-hour hh:mm format (e.g. 18:00). The time picker displayed on the Viewer is using a 12-hour hh:mm time format.

Viewer Usage

There are two input fields available. The From time picker allows selection of the lower boundary or start time while the To time picker allows selection of the upper boundary or end time. The values are inclusive.

To use the time picker, key in hours, minutes and period (i.e. AM, PM) to display the desired time value.

Field/Icon Description
Hours Field for hours in 12-hour format. Only whole numbers from 01 to 12 are allowed.
Minutes Field for minutes. Only whole numbers from 00 to 59 are allowed.
Period Field for period. Only AM and PM are allowed.
Clear Icon Clears the entered value.

The range of both time pickers are independent of the other. Note that hour, minute, and period fields on a time picker must be populated to make the value valid.

By default, the both fields are disabled. The time pickers can be used even when their corresponding checkboxes are unselected.

Either or both of the fields can be enabled. To enable a field, select the checkbox corresponding it. To disable a field, deselect the checkbox corresponding it.
