The JavaScript DatePicker (Calendar Picker) is a lightweight and mobile-friendly control that allows end users to enter or select a date value. 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 the date selection.

JavaScript DatePicker or JS date selector with masked date input

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 the month or 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 in JS DatePicker.

Date selection within a date range

You can restrict the JavaScript Date Picker so that only a date value within a specific range of dates can be entered or selected by specifying the min and max date options.

Disabled dates

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

Form support and date validation

Date values are validated within a min and max range. Strict mode behavior is used 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.
