Topic: Programatically set values for `MDBDatePickerV5` using `value` prop

caio.davi free asked 2 years ago


Expected behavior

The value prop should set the default value for the field.

Actual behavior

It doesn't.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

Here is the way I'm doing it, please help me find out what I'm doing wrong:

const DateComponent = (props) => {

const passIfDate = (date) => date instanceof Date && !isNaN(date) ? date : null;

const handleDate = (date, field) => {
    if (date !== props.dateKeeper[field]) {
      let newKeeper = { ...props.dateKeeper };
      newKeeper[field] = date;
      props.setDateKeeper(newKeeper);
    }
};

return (
<div>
  <MDBDatePickerV5
    labelTitle="Date"
    value={passIfDate(props.dateKeeper.Date)}
    getValue={(e) => {
      handleDate(e, "Date");
    }}
  />
<MDBDatePickerV5
    labelTitle="ArrivalDate"
    value={passIfDate(props.dateKeeper.ArrivalDate)}
    getValue={(e) => {
      handleDate(e, "ArrivalDate");
    }}
  />
</div>
);
};

export default DateComponent;

UPDATE:

I downgraded to MDBTimePicker and this code seems to work well. Unfortunately, there were some inconsistences on the API described here. Also, the style doesn't work well. For example, I had to change labelTitle to label to have the label rendered, but the style doesn't work.

Do you have any kind of workarround to this?
