Well, that is the source of my confusion. It only allows you to enter hours and minutes - there is no place to change the "seconds" on the clock here. Were there a place to set the seconds and it did not accept them then yes, I'd agree there was a bug to be resolved.

What seems to be happening, is that he is wanting to set a specific time down to the second resolution. However, because this is a view - the instant a number is typed in the clock is changed. There is no accept/apply/update etc button to click on to validate the changes. So instead, he is watching the clock to press ESC so that the seconds will be set to 0 at that instant.

If that is the goal, I am wondering why using the method of typing hh.mmss and storing it into "Time" would not save him up to a minute of valuable time.


Although I work for HP, the views and opinions I post here are my own.
