Topic: DateTimepicker `disablePast` issues

luc122c priority asked 1 year ago

Hi, I'm having some issues with the disablePast attribute of the DateTimepicker component.

  label="Select start date/time"

Expected behavior

Adding the disablePast attribute would disable any Date/Time in the past. For example:

  • Current Date/Time: 22/06/2023 15:00
  • Datepicker should disabled dates before 22/06/2023
  • Timepicker should disable times before 3pm ONLY if the selected dateis 22/06/2023

Actual behavior

disablePast is passed to the sub-components individually, leading to unexpected behaviour. For example:

  • Current Date/Time: 22/06/2023 15:00
  • Datepicker disables dates before 22/06/2023
  • Timepicker incorrectly disables times before 3pm, regardless of date!

Additional issue

Furthermore, I tried to work around this by omitting the disablePast attribute and use the datepicker prop to pass disablepast: true directly to the Datepicker component only, however it appears that in the source code, the disablePast and disableFuture props are passed directly into the sub-components, and because the props have defaults, these override any value set in the datepicker prop.

  label="Select start date/time"
    disablePast: true,

Hi! I cannot recreate this issue. I tried changing the time to 3:00 PM in our code to see the issue but it seems to be working for me. Could you describe what is the timepicker showing in your app? Does it disable the wrong hours, Am/Pm format, doesn't let you pick a time? Is it not working at all or just the PM times?

The disablePast attribute in DateTimepicker is passing the prop further to Timepicker and Datepicker so it shouldn't be an issue.

Best Regards!
