Date Range in JavaScript (ES5) Calendar control

22 Oct 2021 / 1 minute to read

Calendar provides an option to select a date value within a specified range by defining the min and max properties. The min date should always be lesser than the max date. If the value of min or max properties are changed through code behind, then update the value property to be set within the specified range, or else, if the value is out of specified date range and less than min date, value property will be updated with min date or the value is higher than max date, value property will be updated with max date.

The following example allows you to select a date within the range of 7th to 27th days in a month.

    //Creates a Calendar with min and max properties.
    var today = new Date();
    var currentYear = today.getFullYear();
    var currentMonth = today.getMonth();
    var currentDay = today.getDate();

   var calendar = new ej.calendars.Calendar({    
    //sets the min date
    min: new Date(currentYear, currentMonth, 7),
    //sets the max date
    max: new Date(currentYear, currentMonth, 27),
    //sets the value
    value: new Date(new Date().setDate(14))
