Hi,
I got the date component but
I want a component where I can also select a time
or may be even just select time.
Basically, the requirement is that I want the user to select any time in the 24 hours Up to minute accuracy.
If ne one has such a component, plz tell me I require it urgently.
ne way, thanx again for the date combo box.
It was really wonderful.
Byeee
Take Care
Asif
