Convert 11 AM to string of time

Recommended Posts

I have a form that submits G

 

How can I convert this to string of time when I need to insert it into the database and then turn it back around when it needs to be read?

 

          
<option>11:00 AM</option>
<option>11:30 AM</option>
<option>12:00 PM</option>
<option>12:30 PM</option>
<option>1:00 PM</option>
<option>1:30 PM</option>

 

Thank you.

<?php
function halfhourclock($i){
if($i%2==1){
	$halfhour=3;
}else{
	$halfhour=0;
}
if($i<26){
	return floor($i*0.5).':'.$halfhour.'0 AM';
}else{
	return floor(($i-24)*0.5).':'.$halfhour.'0 PM';
}
}
for($i=2;$i<50;$i++){
echo halfhourclock($i).'<br />';
}
?>

You can save the time in mysql as a tinyint this way.

Probably far better ways of doing it, just thought this would be simple...
