Date format in Vue Datepicker component

24 Mar 20231 minute to read

Date format is a way of representing the date value in different string format in the textbox.

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

Once the date 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 Format section.

The following example demonstrates the DatePicker with the custom format (yyyy-MM-dd).

    <div id="app">
      <div class='wrapper'>
        <ejs-datepicker :placeholder="waterMark" :value="dateVal" :format="dateFormat"></ejs-datepicker>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { DatePickerPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-calendars';

export default {
data () {
    return {
      waterMark : 'Select a date',
      dateVal : new Date(),
      dateFormat : 'yyyy-MM-dd'
