Changing Time Format in Kendo TimePicker

From this blog, you will learn to switch between different time formats in Kendo Time Picker.

Introduction

There will be a certain scenario where, based on the user's convenience, we should provide a two-time format (12hrs/24hrs). This blog will explain how to work with Kendo Time Picker to format the time based on the user's selection of  time format.

Kendo Time Picker

Kendo Time Picker is a widget to pick the time from the control, here the code to implement the Kendo Time Picker control.

Now, I'm going to include the two-time format in the Kendo Time Picker using the setOptions function based on the radio button selection.

  64.   
  65.         .fieldlist li {  
  66.             list-style: none;

  70.         </div>  
  71.   
  72.   
  73. </body>  
  74. </html>  
From the above code, it is clear that based on radio button selection the time format of the Time Picker will get changed.
