Fast time input

Sample Input:
FastTimeInput ( 802 )
Sample Output:
08:02


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Click here to copy To Clip Manager if you have myFMbutler's Clip Manager installed

Description:

I think it's a little bit comfortable solusion to make your hand fly only above NUMPAD. So you can focus on numbers with no colon-timeouts.

Thanks.

I took this and modified as follows: Added the ability to test for AM & PM in field, as well as allow for glitch when entering in a single digit it would enter it as seconds instead of hours.
//Altered to test for AM & PM
Let
(
[ TimeFld = Filter ( _Time ; 1234567890 ) ;
TimeLngth = Length ( TimeFld );
TimePM = PatternCount(_Time;"PM") or PatternCount(_Time;"pm") ;
Timeadd = If(TimePM ≥ 1;12;0)
] ;
Case
(
TimeLngth = 3 ;
"0" & Left ( TimeFld ; 1 )+Timeadd & ":" & Right ( TimeFld ; 2 ) ;
TimeLngth = 4 ;
Left ( TimeFld ; 2 )+Timeadd & ":" & Right ( TimeFld ; 2 ) ;
_Time+Timeadd & ":00"
)
)

The last line is wrong.
_Time+Timeadd & ":00"
Should be
TimeFld+Timeadd & ":00"

New to this concept of custom functions excuse my newbie question exactly how would one implement this to an existing field?. DI have to change timefld to the field I want to fast input?

Great function.

If it's not clear, you can implement this by change "TimeFld" to "Self" and in the Field Management input this funcion as an Calculated Value (preferrably with replace existing value so you're able to change it as well).
