How to convert TimeRangeView selected values to a human readable format in my dashboard header?

Communicator

I have a dashboard where I am using TimeRangeView control.
I would like to display the TimeRangeView control selected value as human readable format in my dashboard header.
unfortunately, I don't have the option to run a Splunk search in this case.

Ex:
Imagine current time is 14:12:00 03/09/2015, then
1) If TimeRangeView control selected value is -1m@m, then it should print as 14:11:00 03/Sep/2015
2) If TimeRangeView control selected value is -4h@m, then it should print as 10:12:00 03/Sep/2015
3) If TimeRangeView control selected value is -2d@h, then it should print as 14:12:00 01/Sep/2015

Any help on this is much appreciated.
Thanks.

Anything with Javascript or otherways to convert the TimeRangeView control selected values to epoch time will be helpful

Use the moment.js library.

moment.js works in this case. Sorry for delayed response in this forum.

Check if this one works for you: ... | fieldformat time_field = strftime(time_field, "%H:%M:%S %d/%b/%Y")
