Date time format in EJ2 JavaScript Datetimepicker control

26 Apr 20232 minutes to read

DateTime format is a way of representing the date and time value in different string format in the textbox.

By default, the DateTimePicker’s format is based on the culture. You can also set the own custom format by using the format property.

Once the format property has been defined it will be common to all the cultures.

To know more about the date format standards, refer to the Internationalization Date Time Format section.

The following example demonstrates the DateTimePicker with the custom format (yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm).

var datetimepicker = new ej.calendars.DateTimePicker({
        placeholder: 'Choose a date',
        value: new Date(),
    // sets the format.
    format: 'yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm'
    });
    datetimepicker.appendTo('#element');
