# Date pickers
MDatePicker is a fully featured date selection component that lets users select a date, or range of dates.
Date pickers come in two orientation variations, portrait (default) and landscape. By default they are emitting
event when the day (for date picker) or month (for month picker), but with Reactive prop they can update the model even
after clicking year/month.
Mdatepicker accepts ISO 8601 * * date * * string (yyyy-mm-dd). For more information on ISO 8601 and other standards, please visit ISO (International Organization for Standardization) [international standards]�� https://www.iso.org/standards.html ��Official website.
You can specify allowed dates using arrays, objects, and functions.
Date picker colors can be set using the Color and HeaderColor props. If HeaderColor prop is not provided header will use the Color prop value.
MDatePicker component supports elevation up to a maximum value of 24. For more information on elevations, visit
the official Material Design elevations page.
You can override the default icons used in the picker.
Date picker can now select multiple dates with the Multiple prop. If using Multiple then date picker expects its model to be an array.
# Picker date
You can watch the OnPickerDateUpdate which is the displayed month/year (depending on the picker type and active view) to perform some action when it changes. This uses the .sync modifier.
Date picker can select date range with the Range prop. When using Range prop date picker expects its model to be an array of length 2 or empty.
Selecting new date could be disabled by adding Readonly prop.
By default the current date is displayed using outlined button - ShowCurrent prop allows you to remove the border or select different date to be displayed as the current one.
By default days from previous and next months are not visible. They can be displayed using the ShowAdjacentMonths prop.
You can specify the picker’s width or make it full width.
# Date buttons(TODO)
# Active picker
You can create a birthday picker - starting with year picker by default, restricting dates range and closing the picker menu after selecting the day make the perfect birthday picker.
When integrating a picker into a
MTextField, it is recommended to use the Readonly prop. This will prevent mobile
keyboards from triggering. To save vertical space, you can also hide the picker title.
Pickers expose a slot that allow you to hook into save and cancel functionality. This will maintain an old value which can be replaced if the user cancels.
If you need to display date in the custom format (different than YYYY-MM-DD) you need to use the formatting function.
Formatting dates is possible also with external libs such as Moment.js or date-fns
