In my form, I have labeled my time input as field3 such as:
input type="time" token="field3" searchWhenChanged="true"
In the search below it, I want to calculate the time as seconds, using
| eval time_s=$field3.latest$ - $field3.earliest$
But I got error.
Any idea how to use the Time Input field to calculate the time in seconds?
I am not sure of the purpose of this calculation, however, Earliest and Latest Time selected in a Search through Input Control are available as
finalized search event handler. You can use
eval attribute to calculate time span in seconds applied to search via time input.
<search> <query>|makeresults </query> <earliest>$field3.earliest$</earliest> <latest>$field3.latest$</latest> <sampleRatio>1</sampleRatio> <preview> <eval token="SearchSpan">$job.searchLatestTime$-$job.searchEarliestTime$</eval> </preview> </search>
You can then use the token in your form like in the following HTML panel
<html> Selected Time Span=$SearchSpan$ </html> </panel>
The really nice thing about this option is that you might have multiple timepickers and even then, you might override all of them with
earliest=; this should handle every case with no thinking/planning/upkeep.
