You can set or get the currently selected date of the calendar using the value property.

The following example demonstrates the Calendar with selected date and change event to display the selected date value.

import { Component, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { CalendarComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `<ejs-calendar #ejCalendar [value]='dateValue' (change)='onChange($event)'></ejs-calendar>
        <p id=output style="margin-left:18%; margin-left: 31%;word-wrap: break-word;"></p>`
})

export class AppComponent {
    @ViewChild('ejCalendar') ejCalendar: CalendarComponent;
    public dateValue: Date = new Date();
    constructor() {
    }
    ngAfterViewInit(): void {
        document.getElementById('output').textContent = "" + this.ejCalendar.value;
    }
    onChange(args) {
        document.getElementById('output').textContent = "" + args.value;
    }
}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
//Syncfusion ej2-angular-calendars module
import { CalendarModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';


/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        CalendarModule //declaration of ej2-angular-calendars module into NgModule
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);
