Automatic appearing punctuation

Hi, I need to find a way to automatically add/force a colon ( : ) between the hours and minutes (e.g. 11:45) because we need that format when people are recording time on our app, but people are finding it confusing and trying to put a full stop in between (e.g. 11.45). Is there any way it’s possible for the : to automatically be there and for it to pull that when we export the data off the app? Thanks!

This may be down to your default Time format in your Language settings. If you always want a colon, try setting it there.


If you are looking for a way to offer your users an intuitive way to set the time, try the jQueryUI datetime picker, See this demo: Using this, your users will never have to enter any : or . as hour-minute separator.
