Strict Mode

The strictMode is an act, that allows the user to enter only the valid date within the specified min/max range in textbox. If the date is invalid, then the component will stay with the previous value. Else, if the date is out of range, then the component will set the date to the min/max date.

The following example demonstrates the DatePicker in strictMode with min/max range of 5th to 25th in a month of May. Here, it allows to enter only the valid date within the specified range. If you are trying to enter the out-of-range value as like 28th of May, then the value will set to the max date of 25th May. Since the value 28th is greater than to max value of 25th. Or else if you are trying to enter the invalid date, then the value will stay with the previous value.
