Introduction

The Time Format screen allows you to define how times will appear throughout the app. You can select from some standard formats or create your own.

Display

The Time Format screen can have 1, 2, or 3 sections. The first section shows the standard time formats you may select from. The second section lists any custom time formats you have created. The third sections appears when you are editing or creating a custom format.

The first two sections display the current time using the associated format. For certain times it is possible for two different time formats to show the same output. For example, the 11th hour will appear as 11 whether you use the Hour [1-12] or the 2-digit Hour [01-12] format.

The currently selected format will appear with a check mark (unless you are in edit mode). While in edit mode the custom formats will show reorder icons.

When editing a custom time format text values will appear within quotes to make it easier to see any entered spaces.

Features

Select Format

Simply tap the desired format to select it.

Add Custom Format

Start by tapping the Edit button. Then tap on Add Format. The third section will appear. Based on the desired format you tap the appropriate Add... row in the third section. You then select the specific format or enter any text you wish to appear in the time. No space is added automatically so you must add your own as desired using the Add Text option. You can reorder the chosen format components. You can see the current time formatted in the chosen format as you make changes. You may also delete a format component by tapping the red circle icon to the left of the component.

Edit Custom Format

Start by tapping the Edit button. Then tap on custom format you wish to edit. The third section will appear with the details of the selected format. At this point the editing of the format is the same as adding a format. Changes are saved automatically.

Delete Custom Format

If the Edit button has not been tapped you can use the swipe-to-delete gesture across the format you wish to delete. If the Edit button has been tapped then tap the red circle icon to the right of the format you wish to delete. In either case you will then need to tap the Delete button to confirm the deletion.

If the deleted format was the currently selected format then the first standard format will become the newly selected format.

Reorder Custom Format

If there are more than one custom formats you can order them as desired. Tap the Edit button. Reorder handles will appear next to each custom format. Press and hold on the reorder icon then drag the custom format row to the desired location.
