What’s New in 2021 Volume 3: Flutter Date Range Picker

What’s New in 2021 Volume 3: Flutter Date Range Picker

The Flutter Date Range Picker is a lightweight widget that allows users to easily select a single date, multiple dates, or a range of dates. It provides month, year, decade, and century views to navigate to the desired date quickly.

At Syncfusion, we are continuously reviewing the constructive comments we receive from our customers, which include various feature requests. From there, we picked the most widely requested features and made them available in the Essential Studio 2021 Volume 3 release.

In this blog post, I’ll briefly discuss the new features included in the Flutter Date Range Picker widget for the 2021 Volume 3 release.

Today button

You can display the today button at the bottom of the view by setting the value to true in the showTodayButton property of the SfDateRangePicker. This helps us easily navigate to the current date in the Date Range Picker view.

Refer to the following code.

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
   return MaterialApp(
     home: Scaffold(
       body: SfDateRangePicker(
         showTodayButton: true,
       ),
     ),
   );
 }

Selectable day predicate

The new SelectableDayPredicate function allows only certain days to be selected. If this callback function returns true for certain days, only those days will be selectable in the date picker. With this, you can easily disable the interaction with certain dates in the Flutter Date Range Picker when the view is loading.

For example, you can disable weekends or holidays.

You can also customize the disabled dates through the disabledDatesTextStyle and disabledDatesDecoration properties from the DateRangePickerMonthCellStyle and DateRangePickerYearCellStyle classes.

Refer to the following code.

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return Scaffold(
      body: SafeArea(
          child: Card(
              child: SfDateRangePicker(
                selectableDayPredicate: (DateTime dateTime) {
                  if (dateTime == DateTime(2021, 9, 2) || dateTime == DateTime(2021, 9, 5) || dateTime == DateTime(2021, 9, 14) || dateTime == DateTime(2021, 9, 18) || dateTime == DateTime(2021, 9, 23) || dateTime == DateTime(2021, 9, 29))  {
                    return false;
                  }
                  return true;
                },
              )))
      );
}

Mouse-hovering improvement

The hovering functionality for dates in a range was improved for both range and ranges selection by highlighting the current date. Also, the hovering for extendable range selection was improved to provide a better UI experience.
