In this article I will explain with an example, how to implement jQuery TimePicker plugin in ASP.Net Core MVC.
Note: For beginners in ASP.Net Core MVC, please refer my article ASP.Net MVC Core Hello World Tutorial with Sample Program example.
Download jQuery TimePicker Plugin
You will need to download the plugin files from the following location.
The complete documentation is available in the following link.
The Controller consists of following two Action methods.
Action method for handling GET operation
Inside this Action method, simply the View is returned.
Action method for handling POST operation
This Action method gets called when the Form is submitted.
Inside this Action Method, the value of the selected Time is fetched and set into a ViewBag object.
public class HomeController : Controller
    public IActionResult Index()
        return View();
    public IActionResult Index(string time)
        DateTime dt = Convert.ToDateTime(time);
        ViewBag.Message = dt.ToShortTimeString();
        return View();
The View consists of an HTML Form which has been created using the following TagHelpers attributes.
asp-action – Name of the Action. In this case the name is Index.
asp-controller – Name of the Controller. In this case the name is Home.
method – It specifies the Form Method i.e. GET or POST. In this case it will be set to POST.
Inside the Form, there is an HTML TextBox and a Submit Button.
jQuery TimePicker Plugin implementation
Inside the View, the following jQuery TimePicker CSS file is inherited.
1. jquery.timepicker.min.css
And then, the following jQuery and jQuery TimePicker JS script files are inherited.
1. jquery.min.js
2. jquery.timepicker.min.js
Inside the jQuery document ready event handler, the HTML TextBox has been applied with the jQuery TimePicker plugin.
Submitting the Form
When the Time is selected and the Submit button is clicked, the Form is submitted and the ViewBag object is checked for NULL and if it is not NULL then, the value of the ViewBag object is displayed using JavaScript Alert Message Box.
@addTagHelper*, Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc.TagHelpers
    Layout = null;

        <input type="text"id="txtTime" name="time" />
        <input type="submit"id="btnSubmit" value="Submit" />
    @if (ViewBag.Message != null)
        <script type="text/javascript">
