Date Inputs Overview

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

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates the Calendar, DateInput, DatePicker, DateRange, DateTimePicker, MultiViewCalendar, and TimePicker 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 <code>←</code> and <code>→</code> to navigate, <code>↑</code> and <code>↓</code> to update)</p>

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

              <p>(use Alt+↓ to open the time list, Tab to move to the next time section in the popup, ↑ to increment and ↓ to decrement the value)</p>
          <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-6 example-col">
              <p>(use Alt+↓ to open the popup, Alt+<code>←</code> and Alt+<code>→</code> to switch between the tabs when open)</p>

              <kendo-calendar [value]="value"></kendo-calendar>
class AppComponent {
    public value: Date = new Date();


Either use the quick setup (Angular CLI v6 or later) or manually add the package (Angular CLI v5 or earlier).

Quick Setup with Angular CLI v6 or Later

Angular CLI v6 supports the addition of packages through the ng add command which executes in one step the set of otherwise individually needed commands.

ng add @progress/kendo-angular-dateinputs

Manual Setup

All components that you reference during the installation will be present in the final bundle of your application. To avoid ending up with components you do not actually need, either:

  • Import all Date Inputs components at once by using the DateInputsModule, or
  • Import a specific Date Inputs component by adding it as an individual NgModule.

  1. Download and install the package.

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

    To get all package components, import the DateInputsModule in your application root or feature module.

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

    The package also exports the following modules for individual components:

    • CalendarModule
    • DateInputModule
    • DatePickerModule
    • DateRangeModule
    • DateTimePickerModule
    • MultiViewCalendarModule
    • TimePickerModule

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

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
      import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
      import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
      // Imports the Calendar module
      import { CalendarModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-dateinputs';
          bootstrap: [AppComponent],
          imports: [BrowserModule, BrowserAnimationsModule, CalendarModule]
      export class AppModule {}
  3. You are required to install one of the Kendo UI themes for Angular to style your components. For more information on how to add the styles, refer to the section on styling.

  4. For Angular 9.x and later, install the @angular/localize package:

    1. Run npm install --save @angular/localize.
    2. Add import '@angular/localize/init'; to your src/polyfills.ts file.


The Date Inputs package requires you to install the following peer dependencies in your application:

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

The following dependencies will be installed automatically:

  • @progress/kendo-date-math

The Date Inputs package utilizes the Angular animation system, which supports a specific set of browsers.
