You can use this code to achieve it:

if (event.change && AFMergeChange(event).length==2) event.change+=":";

It's possible the code will disappear once you enter it. That's fine. It should still work.

There's a technical reason behind it (or a bug, if you'd like), but the important thing is it should work none-the-less.
