Strict mode

The strictMode is an act that allows you to enter only valid time value within the specified min/max range in the textbox. If the time value is invalid, the component value sets to the previous value. If the time value is out of range, the component sets the time value to min/max value.

The following example demonstrates the TimePicker in strictMode with min/max range of 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM . It allows you to enter only valid time within the specified range. If you enter the out-of-range value like 8:00 PM, the value sets to the max time 4:00 PM as the value 8:00 PM is greater than max value of 4:00 PM. If you enter invalid time value like 9:00 tt, the value sets to the previous value.
