Datepicker

Angular Bootstrap 5 Datepicker

Date picker is a plugin that adds the function of selecting time without the necessity of using custom JavaScript code.

Note: Read the API tab to find all available options and advanced customization


Basic example


Inline version


Translations

The picker can be customized to add support for internationalization. Modify the component options to add translations.


Formats

Use format input to display date in a human-friendly format.

Formatting rules

The following rules can be used to format any date:

Rule Description Result
d Date of the month 1 – 31
dd Date of the month with a leading zero 01 – 31
ddd Day of the week in short form Sun – Sat
dddd Day of the week in full form Sunday – Saturday
m Month of the year 1 – 12
mm Month of the year with a leading zero 01 – 12
mmm Month name in short form Jan – Dec
mmmm Month name in full form January – December
yy Year in short form * 00 – 99
yyyy Year in full form 2000 – 2999

Date limits

Set the minimum and maximum selectable dates with the minDate and maxDate inputs.


Disabled dates

The fitler input accept function in which you can specify conditions for date filtering. A result of true indicates that the date should be valid and a result of false indicates that it should be disabled. In the following example all saturdays and sundays will be disabled.


Input toggle

Add (click)="datepicker.open()" methoed to the input element to enable toggling on input click. It is also possible to remove the toggle button.


Custom toggle icon

You can customize the toggle icon by modyfing icon input of the toggle component.


Accessibility

We added proper aria attributes to the datepicker controls to make the component accessible. It's possible to change the values of those attributes by modyfing the component options:
