Hi Experts,

I have regex to validate time HH:MM tt so I need to make sure I get

from 00:01 am to 11:59 pm

The problem is that this one I have does not take 01:01 am for example or 02:00 pm

so the leading zero makes it invalid time which is not true.

^ *(1[0-2]|[1-9]):[0-5][0-9] *(a|p|A|P)(m|M) *$

Thanks.
