[SOLVED] Input Type Time Display Just Hour


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Barış Aydoğdu


I want to allow pick just hours. I dont wanna display and allow miniutes. For example, User must pick 14.00,16.00 etc. I tried step attribute but ıt is still showing and allowing pick miniutes. How can user just pick full hours?

 <input class="form-control " type="time" step="3600" asp-for="StartTime2" />


Okay, there are three ways of doing what you want to achieve.

1) Select box

Use code similar to this:

  <option value="0">00:00</option>
  <option value="1">01:00</option>
  <option value="2">02:00</option>
  <option value="3">03:00</option>
  <option value="4">04:00</option>
  <option value="5">05:00</option>
  <option value="6">06:00</option>
  <option value="7">07:00</option>
  <option value="8">08:00</option>
  <option value="9">09:00</option>
  <option value="10">10:00</option>
  <option value="11">11:00</option>
  <option value="12">12:00</option>
  <option value="13">13:00</option>
  <option value="14">14:00</option>
  <option value="15">15:00</option>
  <option value="16">16:00</option>
  <option value="17">17:00</option>
  <option value="18">18:00</option>
  <option value="19">19:00</option>
  <option value="20">20:00</option>
  <option value="21">21:00</option>
  <option value="22">22:00</option>
  <option value="23">23:00</option>

…which to be honest isn’t the best!

2) Using JS to reset the minutes; Recommended

function resetMin(e) {
  e.addEventListener("change", function() {
    e.value = e.value.split(":")[0] + ":00";
<input class="form-control" type="time" step="3600" asp-for="StartTime2" />

…which I recommend.

3) Having a number input box

function resetMin(e) {
  e.addEventListener("change", function() {
    e.value = parseInt(e.value % 24);
<input class="form-control " type="number" step="1" min="0" max="23" asp-for="StartTime2" />

This also does the trick but is not the best.

But I’m afraid you cannot make the browser receive a time without minutes more than what you have already done and you cannot prevent it with pure HTML as far as I know.
