Install the CLI application globally to your machine.

npm install -g @angular/cli

By default, it install the CSS style base application. To setup with SCSS, pass —style=scss argument on create project.

Example code snippet.

ng new syncfusion-angular-calendar --style=scss

Navigate to the created project folder.

cd syncfusion-angular-calendar

Adding Calendar package

All the available Essential JS 2 packages are published in npmjs.com registry.

To install Calendar component, use the following command.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars --save
(or)
npm I @syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars --save

The —save will instruct NPM to include the Calendar package inside of the dependencies section of the package.json.

Registering Calendar module

Import Calendar module into Angular application(src/app/app.module.ts) from the package@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars.

import { NgModule }      from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
// import the CalendarModule for the Calendar component
import { CalendarModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars';
import { AppComponent }  from './app.component';

@NgModule({
  //declaration of CalendarModule into NgModule
  imports:      [ BrowserModule, CalendarModule ],
  declarations: [ AppComponent ],
  bootstrap:    [ AppComponent ]
})
export class AppModule { }

Adding CSS reference

The following CSS files are available in ../node_modules/@syncfusion package folder. This can be referenced in [src/styles.css] using following code.

@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-inputs/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-popups/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-lists/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-calendars/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars/styles/material.css';

If you want to refer the combined component styles, please make use of our CRG (Custom Resource Generator) in your application.

Adding Calendar component

Modify the template in [src/app/app.component.ts] file to render the Calendar component. by using <ejs-calendar> selector.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  template: `<!-- To Render Calendar -->
             <ejs-calendar></ejs-calendar>`
})
export class AppComponent  { }

Running the application

After completing the configuration required to render a basic Calendar, run the following command to display the output in your default browser.

ng serve

The following example illustrates the output in your browser

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `
    <!-- To Render Calendar -->
    <ejs-calendar></ejs-calendar>`
})
export class AppComponent {
    constructor() {
    }
}
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';


/**

 */
@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);

Setting the value, min and max dates

The following example demonstrates how to set the value, min and max dates on initializing the Calendar. Here the Calendar allows you to select a date within a range from 9th to 15th. To know more about range restriction in Calendar, please refer this page.
