timepicker with 24h format

when using locales with 24h time formats, it would be nice to be able to pick hours as displayed (0->24) instead of the current 0->12 & AM/PM. Displaying hours like 23:59, it is not that intuitive to pick that hour as 11:59 PM.

maybe add an extra template, timepicker24.html with all the hours and without AM/PM options. or add the hours dynamic to the widget, depending on some kind of option or on the used timeformat (check the existance of 'a' in the format string)

yeah, we discussed this. It's actually worse than that... some locales use 0h and some use 24h :-) (same for noon in 12 hour clocks, I think?) It's possible we could grep for the hour in the standard formatting pattern for that locale and make a guess at the appropriate template to use...

Not sure who should get this bug (Adam, TK, Torrey?) but assigning to Adam for now. (Also not sure whether to schedule it for 0.5 or 0.6 but setting to 0.5 for now)

Eugene, assigning this to you since I remember you planning to rework the widget. I can help you get information to determine the local customs for hours, though it might require a new API.
