Here are some examples of clocks that have the concentric circles I am  
talking about.

Looks like a matter of adding a button to the rddatepicker but you then
need to have space on the screen in the different dialogs that use it.

Too bad someone has not come up with a similar way to quickly enter the
time as well. Maybe a widget that looks something like this clock.

I would think that concentric circles instead of overlapping ones would
make more sense. Three rings one each for hour, minutes, and seconds. I
click or click drag on a circle to set it with a readout in the middle of
the current time setting. Maybe a mouse over event for the rings to read
out what hour,minute or second the time would be set to if you clicked
there. Maybe make the center a button then a simple click on the center
circle could close the timepicker and set the time.

Just and idea.

Greetings,

Frederick
