Angular 5 DatePicker

The following section explains the steps required to create a simple Angular 5 DatePicker component.

Pre-requisites

Make sure that you have the compatible versions of Angular in your machine before starting to work on this project.

Introduction

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

Dependencies

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

Creating Angular Project

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 DatePicker

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

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

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { DatePickerModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars';
import { AppCompnent } from './app.component';
 
@NgModule({ 
    imports: [ BrowserModule, DatePickerModule ],
    declarations: [ AppComponent ],
    bootstrap: [ AppComponent ]
})
 
export class AppModule {}

Define the Angular DatePicker code within the app.component.html file mapped against the templateUrl option in app.component.ts file.

Here, the DatePicker component rendered with the min and max property.

[app.component.ts]

import {Component} from '@angular/core';
 
@Component ({
    selector: 'app-root',
    templateUrl: './app.component.html'
})
 
export class AppComponent {
    public minDate: Date = new Date ("05/07/2017");
    public maxDate: Date = new Date ("05/27/2017");
    public dateValue: Date = new Date ("05/16/2017");
    constructor () {}
}

[app.component.html]

<ejs-datepicker id='datepicker' placeholder='Select a date' [value]='dateValue' [min]='minDate' [max]='maxDate'></ejs-datepicker>

Refer to the CDN link of CSS reference within the index.html file.

Date Format

Date format is a way of representing the date value in different string format in the textbox.

By default, the DatePicker’s format is based on the culture. You can also set the own custom format by using the format property.

Note:

Once the date format property has been defined it will be common for all cultures

 

Here, DatePicker component rendered with the custom format yyyy-MM-dd.

[app.component.ts]

import {Component} from '@angular/core';
 
@Component ({
    selector: 'app-root',
    templateUrl: './app.component.html'
})
 
export class AppComponent {
    public dateValue: Date = new Date ("05/16/2017");
    constructor () {}
}

 

[app.component.html]

<ejs-datepicker id='datepicker' placeholder='Select a date' [value]= 'dateValue' format ='yyyy-MM-dd'></ejs-datepicker>

 

Run the application with the command ng serve and have a DatePicker with custom format will be displayed on the browser as shown below.
