Easy Time Selector with jQuery and jQuery UI - timeselect

Timeselect is a jQuery plugin to turn a text input into a time selector using date.js and jQuery UI autocomplete widget. When a text input is focused you will see a drop down list populated with times for easy select.

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery library and other required resources in the document.

<!-- jQuery Library - >
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script>

<!-- jQuery UI Library - >
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.11.2/themes/flick/jquery-ui.min.css">
<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.11.2/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

<!-- date.js - >
<script type="text/javascript" src="src/date-en-US.js"></script>

2. Include the jQuery timeselect plugin after jQuery JavaScript library.

<script src="src/jquery.ui.timeselect.js"></script>

3. Create an input field for the time selector.

<input id="time-picker">

4. Initialize the plugin to create a basic time selector.

  autocompleteSettings: {
    autoFocus: true

5. Customize the time picker using plugin's options and jQuery UI autocomplete APIs.


  // The minute increment of the select options
  step: 30,

  // The string format of the display time
  format: 'h:mm tt',

  // The maximum number of results displayed
  maxResults: null,

  // Settings to override the jQuery UI Autocomplete settings.
  autocompleteSettings: {}
