I am trying to capture the time from SharePoint list using jquery, but it says Uncaught TypeError: $(...).closest is not a function when I try to store the hour field in a variable and then use it. I have attached both the images for reference.Also wanted to convert the time captured from sharepoint list i.e 02:00 PM to 24 hour format i.e 14:00. Requesting anyone to guide me how to fix this.


Try using the following script:

Note: "time" is my date&time field name.

enter image description here

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready( function() {     
    // get time
        var hours;
        var minutes;
        //get hours
        var hoursStr = $("select[id^='time'][id$='DateTimeFieldDateHours']").find("option:selected").text();
        minutes = $("select[id^='time'][id$='DateTimeFieldDateMinutes']").find("option:selected").text();
            hours = parseInt(hoursStr,10);
            hours = parseInt(hoursStr,10)+12;

  • Thank you for the script, however I need to get the time captured in another change function. I do not want a fucntion. I just need to capture the hours and mins and convert into 24 hour time which is already selected. – Prashanth Edige Sep 20 '18 at 13:58
