Refferencing Hours and Minutes dropdown on “Date and Time” field with JavaScript

February 21st, 2008 | Categories: SharePoint, SharePoint administration

I’ve already posted on how to refference SharePoint field with JavaScript (here – with functio getField).

For "Date and Time" type of fields you can use the above function only to refference the Date part. Thanks to Erik / Tanker who commented my post and discovered that these dropdowns get the same ID but just have added "Hours" or "Minutes" to it I’m posting now the 2 more functions to refference Hours and Minutes with these kind of fields.

There are numerous options – you can merge all together in one function, you can make separate functions, etc. I’ve decided to make two additional functions:

1. You’ll need the getField function I’ve already posted

2. Add the two following functions:

function getDateFieldHours(fieldTitle) {
    var dateField = getField(‘input’,fieldTitle)
    return document.getElementById(’Hours’)

function getDateFieldMinutes(fieldTitle) {
    var dateField = getField(‘input’,fieldTitle)
    return document.getElementById(’Minutes’)

So if you have for example "Start Time" field which is Date and Time you can refference:
– the Date part with getField(‘input’,’Start Time’)
– the Hours part with getDateFieldHours(‘Start Time’)
– the Minutes part with getDateFieldMinutes(‘Start Time’)

Thanks again, Erik!
