    I finished a project for an enhanced pcf control for datetime.

    https://github.com/rexkenley/d365DatetimeBox

    Enhancements include:

    1. a 15 minute time interval that can displayed in either normal or military.
    2. customizeable tooltip that is template capable.
    3. a date start time and end time range. 
    Please let me know if there are any issues. Enjoy!

    @Rex Kenley Tan that's a neat control! I haven't checked but do you use user's locality settings to use AM/FM - not AM/FM settings? Also do you have a localization of weekdays/months for other languages?​

    No localization features. What use cases are you thinking about?

    Let's say I work in international corporation and I have multiple locales installed (not only English but let's say French, Spanish and Ukrainian). When I log in as a user with active French locale inside control I want to see localized week days and months names.

    Ok. I will read up on some of the best practices for internationalization and add it to the control.

    *update*
    Well, I know how to do it. But how do I include only the required languages? Time to HACK pcf again.

    Like this? Do you have a Ukrainian system? On mine when I click the date it is still in english. I want to see if it would automatically convert on a Ukrainian system.

    @Rex Kenley Tan, this is a neat component! As we make the switch to UCI at my company, I just figured we'd use the native components, but this is a helpful option. Thanks for creating and sharing!
    Have you had any issues so far with using the custom PCF ​components with performance or bugs of any kind?

    No issues so far. I am impressed with MS support for react. I have added some really "heavy" react components and did not have any performance issues.​

    Probably the only thing is the lack of support for IE11, but it can addressed with a few configuration changes in pcf.

    @Rex Kenley Tan sounds great, I'll do that! I will try to open my mind to new ideas; I'm sure I'll come up with something, too, because we're just making the transition to UCI. ​
