I have a C#/ASP.NET web application that contains DetailsView controls that are used for CRUD operations through the EntityDataSource and Entity Framework. Unfortunately I'm not sure which forum would be best to post this under, since I am wondering whether either the MaskedEdit AJAX controls or Entity Data Model could be configured to allow for this.
The Entity Framework requires time fields to be of time(7) data type, which must be entered as 24-hour time, with seconds (e.g. '09:30:00'). However, I want the time entered in 12-hour time and without seconds (e.g. '9:30 AM'). Is there a way I can configure the MaskedEditExtender and/or MaskedEditValidator to allow for this. What I was thinking is possibly using the AutoComplete portion of this control to fill in the remaining portions (i.e. seconds) that the user does not enter, but which the EF requires. Either that or can the Entity Data Model or something else be configured to allow for this?
