The time picker provides a standardized way to let users pick a localized time by using touch, mouse, or keyboard input.
Use the time picker when a user needs to select a single time. The time picker is a good option for conserving real estate because the screen space used is fixed and independent of the number of choices.
- Use the time picker when a user needs to select a single time.
- Use a time picker to enable the selection of times when you need to use space efficiently.
- Don't use a time picker to display the current time. It's a static display that's meant to be set by the user.
- Don't use the time picker for performing commands, displaying other windows such as dialog boxes, or dynamically displaying other controls.
