Phonegap plugin - Timepicker

Phonegap plugin that uses the Timepicker from the alarm clock in Android 4.x. Uses code from the Android Open Source Project under Apache License 2.0.

Currently, supports API 11 (Android 3.0) and above due to Fragments API. (if lower required, then support libraries should be implemented

Folder structure

  • assets\fonts - Fonts used by the native timepicker app
  • assets\www\js\timepicker - JS method definition for plugin
  • res\ - Android resources used by the plugin (drawables, layouts, styles etc)
  • res\xml\config.xml - Phonegap config file which must refer to the plugin
  • src\com\android\deskclock.. - Source code for the Timepicker from the Android Opensource project
  • src\no\bouvet\phonegap\timepickerplugin - Source code for the Phonegap plugin (instance of CordovaPlugin)


    <script type="text/javascript" src="js/timepicker.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
       var timepicker = cordova.require("cordova/plugin/timepicker");

       var onTimePickerSuccess  = function(result) { 
                var elem = document.getElementById("hours");
                elem.value = result.hours + ":"+result.minutes;

       var onTimePickerFail = function(result) { alert('fail!'+result); }

       function doSelectHours(){
        timePickerPlugin.doTimePicker(onTimePickerSuccess, onTimePickerFail);

    <input type="text" id="hours" placeholder="Click to select hours" onClick="doSelectHours(this)"/>


  1. Copy the folder structure above to the Phonegap project

  2. Verify that res\xml\config.xml is as you'd like (plugin only requires <plugin name="TimePicker" value="no.bouvet.phonegap.timepickerplugin.TimePickerPlugin" />)

  3. Set the theme of your android activities to android:theme="@style/DeskClock". Example:

      <activity android:name="MainActivity" android:label="@string/app_name"
