[B2G][SMS] support 24 hour time format
There will be a setting toggle to let user choose between 12/24 hour time format in v2.1. User story and settings spec: Bug 903683 For each app, the tasks to do after toggle is added would be: 1.Read/listen to the time format toggle value/change event. 2.Input the corresponding time format to existing mozL10n.DateTimeFormat() function. Currently the input time format should be a fixed 12 hour shortTimeFormat = %I:%M %p , line 201 of http://goo.gl/DR4CNe. There will be a 24 hour time format added. 3.Show the return of the function as it's doing now.
Stas, Gandalf, could this be somehow done in the l10n_date library instead?
It looks like this will be a common problem for many apps. I just realized bug 903683 was filed to track this in all of Gaia. Let's discuss there?
yep, the meta bug is a better location, thanks
Test steps: 1. Open settings app 2. change the Time format settings in Settings > Date & Time > Time Format panel Expect: The time format in sms app will be changed. here's the patch steps to apply correct time format: 1. include navigator.mozHour12 API shim in gaia app's html ``` <script defer src="shared/js/date_time_helper.js"></script> ``` (currently we still need at least `settings: readonly` permission in manifest, which might changed in next release) 2. detect proper time format via mozHour12 API, and get correct time format string from new 'shortTimeFormat12'/'shortTimeFormat24'. ``` var timeFormat = window.navigator.mozHour12 ? _('shortTimeFormat12') : _('shortTimeFormat24'); ``` 3. call mozL10n DateTimeFormat to localize it 4. listen to 'timeformatchange' event and localize time strings when its triggered The full usage is at (WIP) for reference.  https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/pull/22757/files

Comment on attachment 8478109 [details] [review] GitHub pull request URL r=me, thanks for the great effort on huge one point! Seems we underestimated this issue, maybe it would be more precise to create another issue for localization helper ;)
