Topic: DateTimePicker don't call Timepicker OnChange handler when inline is enabled

dartseng premium asked 1 year ago

With the following code:

import React from "react";
import { MDBDateTimepicker,
               MDBCol} from "mdb-react-ui-kit";

function IntervalDateTimePicker(props) {

    function startDateChange(value, date) {
        console.log("startDateChange ", value);

    function startTimeChange(value) {
        console.log("startTimeChange ", value);

    function startDateTimeChange() {
        console.log("startDateTimeChange ");

    function endDateChange(value, date) {
        console.log("endDateChange ", value);
    function endTimeChange(value) {
        console.log("endTimeChange ", value);
    function endDateTimeChange() {
        console.log("endDateTimeChange ");

    return (
                    <MDBDateTimepicker  id="dpstart"
                                        datepickerOptions={{ onChange: startDateChange }}
                                        timepickerOptions={{ format:'24h', onChange: startTimeChange }}
                    <MDBDateTimepicker id="dpend" inline
                                       datepickerOptions={{ onChange: endDateChange }}
                                       timepickerOptions={{ format:'24h', onChange: endTimeChange }}
                                       onChange={endDateTimeChange} />

export default IntervalDateTimePicker;

Expected behavior

When change time in one of the two DateTimePicker the associated event handler (startTimeChange, endTimeChange) will be called.

Actual behavior

Thi is true only for the not inlined datetimepicker

In the following images, the console logs generated when changing date and time on both datetimepickers:

Unfortunately it's a bug. We will fix it as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Keep coding!

Ok, mean time can you give an example on how read a DateTimeKeeper and change a useState Hook with that value ?

All the handler provided by DateTimePicker (OnOpen, OnClose, OnChange) has not associated value, we try to access that value using inputRef props, but the the refs always contains the previous datepicker value and not the currently selected.

At the moment DateTimePicker events (onOpen, onClose, onChange) do not return current value. We will add it in the next release. For the time being you can use built in TimePicker and DatePicker events.

      timepickerOptions={{ onChange: (val: string) => console.log(val) }}
      datepickerOptions={{ onChange: (val: string) => console.log(val) }}

Keep Coding!
