I couldnt find a pre-made component to do this but you could do something like below:

Stick a TEdit and a TUpDown on a form and then use the below code:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  // Can all be set in Object Inspector if you wanted to.
  Edit1.ReadOnly := True;
  UpDown1.Max := 32767;  // Max value of UpDown.Max property
  UpDown1.Min := -32768; // Min value of UpDown.Max property
end;

procedure TForm1.UpDown1Click(Sender: TObject; Button: TUDBtnType);
var
  Hours, Minutes : ShortInt;
  Temp : string;
begin
  Hours := StrToInt(Copy(Edit1.Text, 1, 2));
  Minutes := StrToInt(Copy(Edit1.Text, 4, 2));
  if Button = btNext then
    Inc(Minutes)
  else
    Dec(Minutes);
  if Minutes > 59 then
  begin
    Minutes := 0;
    Inc(Hours);
  end;
  if Minutes < 0 then
  begin
    Minutes := 59;
    Dec(Hours);
  end;
  if (Hours > 23) and
     (Minutes > 0) then
  begin
    Hours := 0;
    Minutes := 0;
  end;
  if Hours < 0 then
  begin
    Hours := 24;
    Minutes := 0;
  end;
  if Length(IntToStr(Hours)) = 1 then
    Temp := '0' + IntToStr(Hours) + ':'
  else
    Temp := IntToStr(Hours) + ':';
  if Length(InttoStr(Minutes)) = 1 then
    Temp := Temp + '0' + IntToStr(Minutes)
  else
    Temp := Temp + IntToStr(Minutes);
  Edit1.Text := Temp;
end;

If you wanted it so users can enter data in as well, then you could use the same code along with a maskedit instead of a editbox.

Cheers,

Alan

just for setting the format you want use

datetimepicker1.perform(DTM_SETFORMAT, 0, longint(pchar('YourTimeFormatString')));

sample
datetimepicker1.perform(DTM_SETFORMAT, 0, longint(pchar('hh:nn')));

not tested, but should work

thanks for your reply.


alanwincup,

I'm actually looking for a ready made component or the standard components, with little or no coding needed. Anyhow, thanks for your code, it works.


kretzschmar,
I get undefined variable DTM_SETFORMAT when i tried out the code. I think datetimepicker's spin function supports only 12 hour format, but what i need is 24 hours format.

quenstion is, could I set datetimepicker to 24 hours format?

Thanks.
