DateInputs Overview

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

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates the Calendar, DateInput, DatePicker, 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">
              <kendo-calendar [value]="value"></kendo-calendar>
class AppComponent {
    public value: Date = new Date();


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

The latest versions of this package (v2 or later) require you to install RxJS v5.5 or later. Before you use the DateInputs components, run npm install --save rxjs@^5.5.

  1. Download and install the package:

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-angular-dateinputs @progress/kendo-angular-intl @progress/kendo-angular-l10n @angular/animations
  2. Once installed, 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 { 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
    • 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 article on getting started.


The DateInputs 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
  • rxjs

The following dependencies will be installed automatically:

  • @progress/kendo-angular-popup
  • @progress/kendo-date-math
  • The version of the @angular/animations module has to be exactly the same as the version of the other @angular modules that are included in your project. To sync the package versions, you might need to run npm update.
  • The DateInputs package utilizes the Angular animation system, which supports a specific set of browsers.
