Setup Angular environment

Angular provides the easiest way to set angular CLI projects using Angular CLI tool.

Install the CLI application globally to your machine.

npm install -g @angular/cli

Create a new application

ng new syncfusion-angular-daterangepicker

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-daterangepicker --style=scss

Navigate to the created project folder.

cd syncfusion-angular-daterangepicker

Adding DateRangePicker package

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

To install DateRangePicker 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 DateRangePicker package inside of the dependencies section of the package.json.

Registering DateRangePicker module

Import DateRangePicker 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 DateRangePickerModule for the DateRangPicker component
import { DateRangePickerModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars';
import { AppComponent }  from './app.component';

@NgModule({
  //declaration of DateRangePickerModule into NgModule
  imports:      [ BrowserModule, DateRangePickerModule ],
  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 DateRangePicker component

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

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

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

Running the application

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

ng serve

The following example illustrates the output in your browser

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { DateRangePickerModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';


/**

@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        FormsModule,
        DateRangePickerModule
    ],
    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 start and end date

The start and end date in a range can be set by using startDate and endDate properties. To know more about range restriction in DateRangePicker, please refer this page.

The below example demonstrates the DateRangePicker with startDate and endDate.
