Elvis: Tack
Rainer: Danke

Maybe the format function uses the system locale instead of default QLocale, that would explain it.

​I am able to reproduce the problem with 5.6.0 on Windows, using your snippet:​

​D:\Develop\tests>qmlscene test.qml
qml: Do 03:04:31
​No am/pm is added, but hour is 0-12. But...

... this is with "Region and Language" set to German. If I set it to English, the output is as expected:

D:\Develop\tests>qmlscene test.qml
qml: Thu 03:05:37 PM

​So the problem seems to be the missing translation for "PM" and "AM"​, but this may be related to Windows rather than Qt.
