Preset Ranges

DateRangePicker provides an option to set the predefined ranges via presets property with the corresponding label. This property will accept the values in the order of label, start date (date object), end date (date object), and append these ranges to the presets pop-up for quick selection. In the following sample, you can easily choose the frequently used range options from the list of ranges.
