    Datetime picker, only show time when not 00:00:00

    Hi,

    For an activity doctype, I use a datetime picker for the start- and enddate. However, my customer needs the possibility to not show time data for some activities.

    My code for the moment looks like this:

    @if (activity.HasValue("activityStartDate"))
                            {
                                <p>
                                <i class="icon-calendar"></i>&nbsp;&nbsp;
                                @if (activity.HasValue("activityEndDate"))
                                {
    
                                @umbraco.library.FormatDateTime(activity.GetPropertyValue("activityStartDate").ToString(), "dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt") @:- @umbraco.library.FormatDateTime(activity.GetPropertyValue("activityEndDate").ToString(), "dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt")
                                }
                                else
                                {
                                @umbraco.library.FormatDateTime(activity.GetPropertyValue("activityStartDate").ToString(), "dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt")
                                }
                                </p>
                            }
    

    Is there a way not to show time one an activity item, for example when time is set to 00:00:00, or something similar?

    thanks for your help,

    Anthony

    Hi Anthony,

    May be you can get this working 

    List<DynamicNode> activity = @Model.AncestorOrSelf(1).Descendants("ActivityDocType").Items;

    foreach(var a in activity){
    if(a.GetProperty("
    activityStartDate").Value.ToString() != " 00:00:00"){
    @Convert.ToDateTime(a.GetProperty("activityStartDate").Value).Date.ToString("dd MMMM, yyy")
    }

    Hi Anthony,

    I use C# Date comparison and it would be something like this (I'm assuming you are using MVC or a Macro Partial View here

    @if (activity.HasValue("activityStartDate"))
    {
        <p>
        <i class="icon-calendar"></i>
            @(activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityStartDate").ToString("dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt"))
    
            @if (activity.HasValue("activityEndDate"))
            {
                var activityEndDate = activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityEndDate");
    
                if (activityEndDate.TimeOfDay == new TimeSpan(0))
                {
                    <text> - @(activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityEndDate").ToString("dd/MM/yyyy"))</text>
                }
                else
                {
                    <text> - @(activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityEndDate").ToString("dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt"))</text>
                }                  
            }   
        </p>
    }

    Perhaps slightly more concise would be:

    @if (activity.HasValue("activityStartDate"))
    {
        <p>
        <i class="icon-calendar"></i>
            @(activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityStartDate").ToString("dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt"))
    
            @if (activity.HasValue("activityEndDate"))
            {
                var activityEndDate = activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityEndDate");
    
                var dateMask = "dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt";
    
                if (activityEndDate.TimeOfDay == new TimeSpan(0))
                {
                    dateMask = "dd/MM/yyyy";                               
                }            
                <text> - @(activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityEndDate").ToString(dateMask))</text>
            }   
        </p>
    }

    Hi Fuji,

    I tested out your solution, and I noticed that a Date object has a TimeofDay property, which is set to "00:00:00" when no time is chosen with the Datetime picker.

    So I came up with this solution which works fine:

    DateTime startDate = (DateTime)activity.GetPropertyValue("activityStartDate");
    @if (startDate.TimeOfDay.ToString() != "00:00:00")
     {
       @umbraco.library.FormatDateTime(activity.GetPropertyValue("activityStartDate").ToString(), "dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt")
     }
    else {
           @umbraco.library.FormatDateTime(activity.GetPropertyValue("activityStartDate").ToString(), "dd/MM/yyyy")
     }

    @Jeavon, sorry, my latest post crossed with your solutions. We both used the TimeofDay property in our solutions, but as your where first I'm checking your solution as solved.

    thanks,

    Awesome, I would probably perfer to compare DateTime objects rather than strings but they should give the same result.

    e.g. @if (startDate.TimeOfDay.ToString() != "00:00:00") vs if (startDate.TimeOfDay == new TimeSpan(0))

    @Jeavon, thanks Jeavon, I refactored my code base on your example. I also added a check to see if start- and enddate are on the same day. If they are, the date is only shown once, like this:

    14/03/2014 09:00 AM - 04:00 PM
    

    My code looks like this now:

         @if (activity.HasValue("activityStartDate"))
                            {
                                var startDate = activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityStartDate");
                                var startDateMask = "dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt";
                                <p>
                                <i class="icon-calendar"></i>&nbsp;&nbsp;
    
                                @if (startDate.TimeOfDay == new TimeSpan(0))
                                {
                                    startDateMask = "dd/MM/yyyy";
                                }
    
    
                                <text>@(activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityStartDate").ToString(startDateMask))</text>
    
                                @if (activity.HasValue("activityEndDate"))
                                {
                                   var endDate = activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityEndDate");
                                   var endDateMask = "dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt";
                                   if (endDate.Day == startDate.Day)
                                   {
                                       endDateMask = "hh:mm tt";
                                   }
                                   if (endDate.TimeOfDay == new TimeSpan(0))
                                   {
                                       endDateMask = "dd/MM/yyyy";
                                   }
    
    
                                       <text>- @(activity.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("activityEndDate").ToString(endDateMask))</text>
    
    
                                }
    
                                </p>
                            }
