Adding validation to time sets

Does anyone know how to add validation that would ensure that a user could only input a time from between 9:00 and 11:00??

Choosing the proper control type is key to limiting input values for time.  I would suggest a dropdown instead of a text input. 


Create 2 new dropdowns and put this code within the items property.

DropdownHour.Items: ["09,"10","11"]
DropdownMinute.Items: If(DropdownHour.Selected.Value="11",["00"],["00","01","02","03","04","05","06","07","08","09","10","11","12","13","14","15","16","17","18","19","20","21","22","23","24","25","26","27","28","29","30","31","32","33","34","35","36","37","38","39","40","41","42","43","44","45","46","47","48","49","50","51","52","53","54","55","56","57","58","59"


To store this result as a text string you would use this code in the Update property of your form



Or to store this result as time you would use this code

Hi @Adam5 ,


You can add modify the ErrorMessage of data card to show the error information when the entry time is out of 9-11.

And set the Mode of Submit button, if the there is a Error Message, the button would be disabled.

Text of ErrorMessage in Data card:


If(TimeValue(DataCardValue1.Text)>TimeValue("11:00") || TimeValue(DataCardValue1.Text)<TimeValue("9:00"),"out of 9:00-11:00",Parent.Error)


DisplayMode of Submit button:





Best regards,
