TimeInput is a user interface component for Flex that allows the user to input a time value. This control include fields for hours, minutes, seconds, and AM/PM. Styling options allow the time to be presented in 12- or 24-hour formats.
TimeInput declares itself as a text field and reads its value and will voice edits. There is no MSAA designation for a time input component, so it notifies the user that it is a "Time Input" through its name property.
To enable accessibility in your Flex application, set the
-accessible compiler option to
true. If you are using Flex Builder, open the Project's Properties dialog and set it from there.
For additional topics, please read Using TimeInput, or take a look at the Examples section for functional demonstrations. The ActionScript 3.0 Class Reference contains full details on every property, method, and style available to the TimeInput component.
Sample Accessible Application
Below is an embedded application built to showcase accessibility. To experience this application properly, you must have a screen reader installed and be familiar with how to use it. Accessibility was developed with JAWS for Windows as the primary screen reader. Installing the JAWS Flex Scripts is highly recommended to obtain the most reliable results.
