DateInputs Overview

The DateInputs enable the user to pick up dates and times for scheduling appointments.

The package includes the following components:

  • Calendar—Represents a graphical calendar that supports the selection of and navigation between dates as well as data templates and ranges for scheduling appointments.
  • DateInput—Represents an input field that recognizes and formats scheduling values such as dates.
  • DatePicker—Represents a combination of the Kendo UI DateInput and Calendar components and allows the user to enter or pick a date value.

The components below are on the Roadmap and will be included in future versions:

  • TimePicker

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates the Calendar, DateInput, and DatePicker components in action.

  selector: 'my-app',
  styles: [ '.k-calendar { margin: 0 auto; }' ],
  template: `
      <div class="row example-wrapper" style="min-height: 450px;">
          <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-6 example-col">
              <kendo-dateinput [value]="value"></kendo-dateinput>
              <p>(use ← and →  to navigate, ↑ and ↓ to update)</p>

              <kendo-datepicker [value]="value"></kendo-datepicker>
              <p>(use Alt+↓ to open the calendar)</p>

          <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-6 example-col">
              <kendo-calendar [value]="value"></kendo-calendar>
class AppComponent {
    public value: Date = new Date();


All components referenced during the installation will be present in the final bundle of your application. To avoid ending up with components you do not actually need, you can either import all DateInputs components at once by using the DateInputsModule or import a specific DateInputs component by importing it as an individual NgModule.

  1. The DateInputs package is published on the Progress NPM Registry. To set up your access, follow the steps in Installation.

  2. Download and install the package:

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-angular-dateinputs @progress/kendo-angular-intl @progress/kendo-angular-l10n
  3. Once installed, you can import the NgModule of the components you need.

    To get all package components, import the DateInputsModule in your application root module:

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
       import { DateInputsModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-dateinputs';
           bootstrap: [AppComponent],
           imports: [DateInputsModule]
       export class AppModule {}

    The package also exports the following modules for individual components:

    • CalendarModule
    • DateInputModule
    • DatePickerModule

    To reduce the size of your application, include only the ones you need:

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
      // Imports the Calendar module
      import { CalendarModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-dateinputs';
          bootstrap: [AppComponent],
          imports: [CalendarModule]
      export class AppModule {}


The DateInputs package requires the following peer dependencies that have to be installed by your application:

  • @angular/animations
  • @angular/common
  • @angular/core
  • @angular/forms
  • @progress/kendo-angular-intl
  • @progress/kendo-angular-l10n
  • rxjs

The following dependencies will be installed automatically:

  • @progress/kendo-angular-popup
  • @progress/kendo-date-math
