The Angular 5 DateRangePicker used in this project is created from the Syncfusion ej2-angular-calendars package. You can simply define it as <ejs-daterangepicker> within the template.


Before starting with this project, the Angular 5 DateRangePicker requires to add the Syncfusion ej2-angular-calendars package from npmjs, which are distributed in npm as @syncfusion scoped packages.

Install Angular CLI 5 using following command.

npm install @angular/cli@1.5.6 -g


Now, create a new Angular project by using the command ng new and navigate to that folder.

ng new <project name>
cd <project name>


Install the ej2-angular-calendars package through the npm install command.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars --save


Adding Angular 5 DateRangePicker

You can add the Angular 5 DateRangePicker component by using ejs-daterangepicker directive and the attributes within the tag allows you to define other functionalities.

Import the DateRangePicker module into the Angular application (app.module.ts) from the ej2-angular-calendars package.

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { DateRangePickerModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars';
import { AppCompnent } from './app.component';
    imports: [ BrowserModule,  DateRangePickerModule ],
    declarations: [ AppComponent ],
    bootstrap: [ AppComponent ]
exports class AppModule {}

Here, the DateRangePicker component is rendered using the startDate and endDate properties.


import {Component} from '@angular/core';
@Component ({
    selector: 'app-root',
    templateUrl: './app.component.html'
export class AppComponent {
    public start: Date = new Date ("10/07/2017"); 
    public end: Date = new Date ("11/25/2017");
    constructor () {}



<ejs-daterangepicker id='daterangepicker' placeholder='Select a range' [startDate]='start' [endDate]='end'></ejs-daterangepicker>
