The React DatePicker is a lightweight and mobile-friendly component 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, disabled dates to restrict date selection and industry-standard themes such as Material, Fabric, and Bootstrap.

React DatePicker with masked date input

Mask Date Input

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 using 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.

Form support and date validation

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.
