Set clear button in calendar in EJ2 TypeScript Calendar control

26 Apr 20233 minutes to read

To configure clear button in Calendar UI, do the following:

  1. To the created event of the Calendar, add the required elements to make clear button visible. In the following example, Essential JS 2 button component within div element is used.

  2. When the e-footer class is used, the div tag acts as the footer.

  3. Using these button, selected date can be cleared.

  4. Bind the required event handler to the button tags to update the value.

Code example is as follows:

import { Calendar } from '@syncfusion/ej2-calendars';
// creates a Calendar with today and clear buttons.
let calendarObject: Calendar = new Calendar({
    created: onCreate
function onCreate() {
    //creates the custom element for clear button.
    let clearBtn: HTMLElement = document.createElement('button');
    let footerElement: HTMLElement = document.getElementsByClassName('e-footer-container')[0];
    clearBtn.className = 'e-btn e-clear e-flat';
    clearBtn.textContent = 'Clear';
// custom click handler to update the value property with current date object.
document.querySelector('.e-footer-container .e-clear').addEventListener('click', function () {
    calendarObject.value = new Date();
