beforeShow

fires before a control is shown

beforeShow: (value: string | ITimeObject) => boolean | void;

Parameters:

value: string | object - the current value of the control

Returns:

Return false to prevent a control from being shown; otherwise, true.

Example

form.getItem("timepicker").events.on("BeforeShow", function(value) {    console.log("BeforeShow", value);    return true;});

The type of the value parameter depends on the applied valueFormat and timeFormat:

  • If valueFormat: "string" and timeFormat:24 are specified, the string value will include just the hour and minutes: "00:39"
  • If valueFormat: "string" and timeFormat:12 are specified, the string value will include hour, minutes, and am/pm identifiers: "06:00AM"
  • If valueFormat: "timeObject" and timeFormat:24 are specified, the object value will contain key:value pairs for hours, minutes and their values: {hour: 0, minute: 39}
  • If valueFormat: "timeObject" and timeFormat:12 are specified, the object value will contain key:value pairs for hours, minutes, am/pm identifiers and their values: {hour: 6, minute: 0, AM: true}
