<input data-clocklet maxlength="5" value="02:25">

To config the clock time picker, pass the following options to the data-clocklet attribute:

  format: 'HH:mm',
  placement: 'bottom', // or 'top'
  alignment: 'left', // or 'rignt'
  appendTo: 'body',
  zIndex: '',
  dispatchesInputEvents: true

Available event handlers:

<input class="event" data-clocklet maxlength="5" value="02:25">
var instance = document.querySelector('.event');
instance.addEventListener('clocklet.opening', function (event) {
  console.log(event.type,, event.detail.options);
  if (document.querySelector('.clocklet-cancel-opening').checked) {
instance.addEventListener('clocklet.opened', function (event) {
  console.log(event.type,, event.detail.options);
instance.addEventListener('clocklet.closing', function (event) {
  if (document.querySelector('.clocklet-cancel-closing').checked) {
instance.addEventListener('clocklet.closed', function (event) {
