I'am using magento 2.0.5 and I want to add date field with time which saves date as well as time in database for entity.

I had tried this code to add new field in my module.

$fieldset->addField('enddate', 'date', array(
        'name' => 'enddate',
        'label' => __('End date'),
        'title' => __('End date'),
        'format' => 'yy-mm-dd H:i:s',
        'input_format' => 'yy-mm-dd H:i:s',
        'required' => true,

but this gives me only date to select not time

enter image description here

Please help me.

You want to have the declaration of the field similar to the following;

        'name' => 'date_to',
        'label' => __('Start Time'),
        'title' => __('Start Time'),
        'date_format' => $this->_localeDate->getDateFormat(\IntlDateFormatter::SHORT),
        'time_format' => $this->_localeDate->getTimeFormat(\IntlDateFormatter::SHORT),
        'class' => 'validate-date'

The important bits are the date_format and time_format keys.
