You can select one or more dates in the Blazor Calendar component. You can use this to denote desired days for an event, book appointments in an interface much more minimal than a scheduler, and show pre-selected dates to your user.
The Telerik Calendar offers two selection modes:
Single day selection mode where the user can choose only one date (that you can interpret as a day, a month or a year, depending on the view you let your user see).
Multiple Selection – you can choose a range of dates, cherry-pick specific dates, or even exclude certain dates from an existing range (can be useful when showing availability of a service or resource, for example).
The calendar can also prevent users from selecting certain dates that you want to disable—for example, because your shop or service is closed during certain times, or a person is unavailable.
See how to prevent dates from being selected.
You can choose what the user sees in the Blazor Calendar—from the days in a single month, to months in a year, to the years in a decade. This enables you to define their starting point, how quickly they will navigate through the time.
You can even change the view they see programmatically or know when they changed it to navigate. Moreover, you can set the earliest and latest dates they can navigate to in order to limit them in a min-max range dictated by your business logic.
A regular calendar shows a single month, or a single year. With the Telerik Blazor Calendar, you can show several months to your user so they can have awareness of the bigger picture.
The user can easily browse between days in a month, to decades and centuries at a time so they can select the date they are looking for quickly.
The Telerik Blazor Calendar lets you know when the user changes the selected date, when they browse the previous and next interval, and when they go up or down the views to see a bigger or smaller time range.
Built-in keyboard navigation means that users can perform all actions in a calendar with the keyboard only. The Telerik Blazor Calendar is also compliant with the web accessibility standards (including WCAG, Section 508 and WAI-ARIA attributes for screen readers).
The Telerik Blazor Calendar component reacts to the current culture automatically. It takes the names of the months, the days of the week and the first day of the week from it without you having to set a single property. You can also translate UI elements such as the “Today” button and the navigation buttons tooltips.
The Telerik Blazor Calendar has several built-in themes such as Default (our own styling), Material (based on the Material Design guidelines) and Bootstrap (which looks like the Bootstrap styling to integrate better). You can easily customize any of out-of-the-box themes with a few lines of CSS, or create new theme to match your colors and branding by using the Telerik SASS ThemeBuilder application.
