It has month, year, and decade view options to quickly navigate to the desired date. It supports minimum dates, maximum dates, and disabled dates to restrict date selection.

Masked date input

Allows users to enter valid dates in the correct format and avoid data input errors during data entry.

Month or year picker

Select only a month or a year as a value (Month Picker or Year Picker) from a pop-up calendar.

Custom date format

Change the default culture’s specific date format in the text box to improve readability or to enter the date properly.

Date selection within a date range

Restrict the users from selecting a date within the particular range of dates by the min and max properties.

Disabled dates

Disable any date in the DatePicker to show it as an inactive date. Easily prevent weekends and holidays from being selected by disabling them in the pop-up calendar.

Date values are validated within a minimum and maximum range to enforce entering only a valid date value. In a form component, integrate the form validation plugin to perform custom validation in the date text box.

No, our 1,800+ components and frameworks for web, mobile, and desktop, including our ASP.NET MVC DatePicker, are not sold individually. They are only available as part of a team license. However, we have competitively priced the product, so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their DatePicker control alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 1,800+ components and frameworks for a subscription fee that starts at $395 per month for a team of 5 developers. Additionally, we might be able to offer discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our product specialists today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue, 5 or fewer developers, and 10 or fewer total employees.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
