If you want only time, TimeField is what you need:
class ConversationHistory(models.Model): contact_date = models.DateField(_(u"Conversation Date"), blank=True) contact_time = models.TimeField(_(u"Conversation Time"), blank=True)
You can take advantage of the
class TimeField([auto_now=False, auto_now_add=False, **options])
A time, represented in Python by a datetime.time instance. Accepts the same auto-population options as DateField.
If you use the
auto_now_add, it will automatically set the field to now when the object is first created.
class ConversationHistory(models.Model): contact_date = models.DateField(_(u"Conversation Date"), auto_now_add=True, blank=True) contact_time = models.TimeField(_(u"Conversation Time"), auto_now_add=True, blank=True)
field_name = models.TimeField(auto_now=False, auto_now_add=False, **options) TimeField has the following extra optional arguments – TimeField.auto_nowAutomatically set the field to now every time the object is saved. Useful for “last-modified” timestamps. Note that the current time is always used; it’s not just a default value that you can override. The field is only automatically updated when calling Model.save(). The field isn’t updated when making updates to other fields in other ways such as QuerySet.update(), though you can specify a custom value for the field in an update like that.
Field parameters are arguments given to each field to apply some kind of constraint or pass a specific characteristic to a specific field. For example, adding the
null = True argument to the TimeField will allow it to store empty values for that table in a relational database.
Here are the field parameters and attributes that TimeField can use.
|Null||If True , Django will store empty values as NULL in the database. Default is False.|
|Blank||If True , the field is allowed to be blank ... Default is False.|
|Choices||An iterable (eg, a list or tuple) of 2-tuples to use as choices for this field.|
|Default||The default value for the field. This can be a value or a callable object. If callable it will be called every time a new object is created.|
|help_text||Extra “help” text to be displayed with the form widget. It's useful for documentation even if your field isn't used on a form.|
|primary_key||If True, this field is the primary key for the model .|
|Unique||If True, this field must be unique throughout the table.|
