Choose time period window

Introduction

This window allows you to choose a time period.

You can choose the start- and end dates using the calendars, and you can use the time controls to choose the start- and end times.  The buttons under the start/end inputs allow you to quickly choose commonly used time periods.

Note that the end date/time is exclusive.  To e.g. choose only May 7, you select May 7, 0:00:00 as the start date/time, and May 8, 0:00:00 as the end date/time.
