Getting Started

The following section explains the steps required to create a simple DateTimePicker component and also it demonstrates the basic usage of the DateTimePicker.

Dependencies

Install the below required dependency package in order to use the DateTimePicker component in your application.

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-angular-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-calendars
        |-- @syncfusion/ej2-lists
        |-- @syncfusion/ej2-inputs
          |-- @syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons
        |-- @syncfusion/ej2-popups
            |-- @syncfusion/ej2-buttons

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-datetimepicker

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-datetimepicker --style=scss

Navigate to the created project folder.

cd syncfusion-angular-datetimepicker

Adding DateTimePicker package

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

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

Registering DateTimePicker module

Import DateTimePicker 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 DateTimePickerModule for the DateTimePicker component
import { DateTimePickerModule } from "@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars";
import { AppComponent } from "./app.component";

@NgModule({
  //declaration of DateTimePickerModule into NgModule
  imports: [BrowserModule, DateTimePickerModule],
  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 DateTimePicker component

Modify the template in [src/app/app.component.ts] file to render the DateTimePicker component. Add the Angular DateTimePicker by using <ejs-datetimepicker> selector in template section of the app.component.ts file.

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

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

Running the application

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

ng serve

The following example illustrates the output in your browser

Preview
app.component.ts
app.module.ts
main.ts
import { Component } from "@angular/core";

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  template: `<ejs-datetimepicker></ejs-datetimepicker>`
})
export class AppComponent {
  constructor() {}
}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
import { DateTimePickerModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';


/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        DateTimePickerModule,
        FormsModule
    ],
    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 min and max

The minimum and maximum date time can be defined with the help of min and max property. The following example demonstrates to set the min and max on initializing the DateTimePicker. To know more about range restriction in DateTimePicker, please refer this page.

Source
Preview
app.component.ts
app.module.ts
main.ts
import { Component } from "@angular/core";

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  template: `<ejs-datetimepicker [min]='minDate' [max]='maxDate'></ejs-datetimepicker>`
})
export class AppComponent {
  public month: number = new Date().getMonth();
  public fullYear: number = new Date().getFullYear();
  public minDate: Date = new Date(this.fullYear, this.month , 22, 12);
  public maxDate: Date = new Date(this.fullYear, this.month, 25, 17);
  constructor() {}
}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
import { DateTimePickerModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-calendars';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';


/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        DateTimePickerModule,
        FormsModule
    ],
    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);

If the value of min or max properties changed through code behind, then you have to update the value property to set within the range.
