The timezones parameter type provides a drop down list of time zones. If the parameter has a value saved, this value is displayed when the page is first loaded. If not, the default value (if any) is selected.

  • type (mandatory) must be timezones.
  • name (mandatory) is the unique name of the parameter.
  • label (mandatory) (translatable) is the descriptive title of the field.
  • default (optional) (translatable) is the default time zone. For example, use '-10' for '(UTC -10:00) Hawaii'.
  • description (optional) (translatable) is text that will be shown as a tooltip when the user moves the mouse over the drop-down box.

Example XML parameter definition:

<param name="mytimezone" type="timezones" default="-10" label="Select a timezone" description="" />
