Getting Started

This section briefly explains about how to create and configure a simple DateRangePicker component.

Dependencies

The following list of dependencies are required to use DateRangePicker component in your application.

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

Set up your development environment

To start the DateRangePicker component, clone the Essential JS 2 quickstart application, and install the packages by using the following commands.

git clone https://github.com/syncfusion/ej2-quickstart.git quickstart
cd quickstart
npm install

The application is preconfigured with all the EJ2 dependencies. For better understanding, remove common settings (src/styles/styles.css, system.config.js ) to get started with the DateRangePicker component.

[src/system.config.js]

System.config({
    paths: {
        'npm:': './node_modules/',
        'syncfusion:': 'npm:@syncfusion/'
    },
    map: {
        app: 'app',

        //Syncfusion packages mapping
        "@syncfusion/ej2-base": "syncfusion:ej2-base/dist/ej2-base.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-inputs": "syncfusion:ej2-inputs/dist/ej2-inputs.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-popups": "syncfusion:ej2-popups/dist/ej2-popups.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-lists": "syncfusion:ej2-lists/dist/ej2-lists.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-data": "syncfusion:ej2-data/dist/ej2-data.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-buttons": "syncfusion:ej2-buttons/dist/ej2-buttons.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons": "syncfusion:ej2-splitbuttons/dist/ej2-splitbuttons.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-calendars": "syncfusion:ej2-calendars/dist/ej2-calendars.umd.min.js",
    },
    packages: {
        'app': { main: 'app', defaultExtension: 'js' }
    }
});

System.import('app');

Adding Style sheet to the Application

To render the DateRangePicker component, need to import DateRangePicker and its dependent component’s styles as given below in style.css.

@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-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.

Add DateRangePicker to the application

Add the HTML input element with an ID attribute as element for DateRangePicker to your index.html file.

[src/index.html]

<!DOCTYPE html>

    <div style="margin: 50px;">
        <!--element which is going to render the DateRangePicker-->
        <input id="element"/>
    </div>

</body>

</html>

Import the DateRangePicker component to your app.ts and append it to the #element [src/app/app.ts].

import { DateRangePicker } from '@syncfusion/ej2-calendars';

// initialize daterangepicker component
let daterangepicker: DateRangePicker = new DateRangePicker();
daterangepicker.appendTo('#element');

Run the application

Use the npm run start command to run the application in the browser.

npm run start

The following example shows a basic DateRangePicker.

Setting the start and end date

The start and end date in a range can be defined with the help of startDate and endDate property. The following example demonstrates to set the start and end date on initializing the DateRangePicker.

app.ts
index.html
import { DateRangePicker } from '@syncfusion/ej2-calendars';
// creates a daterangepicker with start and end date
let daterangepicker: DateRangePicker = new DateRangePicker({
//sets the start date in the range
startDate: new Date("11/9/2017"),
//sets the end date in the range
endDate: new Date("11/21/2017")
});
daterangepicker.appendTo('#element');
