Date Picker

Date pickers let the user select a date.

Date pickers let the user select a date. Date pickers are displayed with:

  • Dialogs on mobile
  • Text field dropdowns on desktop

Requirements

This component relies on the date management library of your choice. It supports date-fns, luxon, dayjs, moment and any other library via a public dateAdapter interface.

Please install any of these libraries and set up the right date engine by wrapping your root (or the highest level you wish the pickers to be available) with LocalizationProvider:

// or @material-ui/lab/Adapter{DayJS,Luxon,Moment} or any valid date-io adapter
import AdapterDateFns from '@material-ui/lab/AdapterDateFns';
import LocalizationProvider from '@material-ui/lab/LocalizationProvider';

function App() {
  return (
    <LocalizationProvider dateAdapter={AdapterDateFns}>...</LocalizationProvider>
  );
}

Basic usage

The date picker will be rendered as a modal dialog on mobile, and a textfield with a popover on desktop.

<LocalizationProvider dateAdapter={AdapterDateFns}>
  <DatePicker
    label="Basic example"
    value={value}
    onChange={(newValue) => {
      setValue(newValue);
    }}
    renderInput={(params) => <TextField {...params} variant="standard" />}
  />
</LocalizationProvider>

Responsiveness

The date picker component is designed and optimized for the device it runs on.

  • The "Mobile" version works best for touch devices and small screens.
  • The "Desktop" version works best for mouse devices and large screens.

By default, the DatePicker component uses a @media (pointer: fine) media query to determine which version to use. This can be customized with the desktopModeMediaQuery prop.

mm/dd/yyyy

Localization

Use LocalizationProvider to change the date-engine locale that is used to render the date picker. Here is an example of changing the locale for the date-fns adapter:

Views playground

It's possible to combine year, month, and date selection views. Views will appear in the order they're included in the views array.

Static mode

It's possible to render any picker without the modal/popover and text field. This can be helpful when building custom popover/modal containers.

<LocalizaitonProvider dateAdapter={AdapterDateFns}>
  <StaticDatePicker
    displayStaticWrapperAs="desktop"
    openTo="year"
    value={value}
    onChange={(newValue) => {
      setValue(newValue);
    }}
    renderInput={(params) => <TextField {...params} variant="standard" />}
  />
</LocalizaitonProvider>

Landscape orientation

For ease of use the date picker will automatically change the layout between portrait and landscape by subscription to the window.orientation change. You can force a specific layout using the orientation prop.

SELECT DATE

Mon, Nov 23

<LocalizaitonProvider dateAdapter={AdapterDateFns}>
  <StaticDatePicker
    orientation="landscape"
    openTo="date"
    value={value}
    shouldDisableDate={isWeekend}
    onChange={(newValue) => {
      setValue(newValue);
    }}
    renderInput={(params) => <TextField {...params} variant="standard" />}
  />
</LocalizaitonProvider>

Sub-components

Some lower level sub-components (DayPicker, MonthPicker and YearPicker) are also exported. These are rendered without a wrapper or outer logic (masked input, date values parsing and validation, etc.).

<LocalizaitonProvider dateAdapter={AdapterDateFns}>
  <DayPicker
    allowKeyboardControl={false}
    date={date}
    onChange={(newValue) => setDate(newValue)}
  />
</LocalizaitonProvider>

Custom input component

You can customize rendering of the input with the renderInput prop. Make sure to spread ref and inputProps correctly to the custom input component.

<LocalizaitonProvider dateAdapter={AdapterDateFns}>
  <DesktopDatePicker
    label="Custom input"
    value={value}
    onChange={(newValue) => {
      setValue(newValue);
    }}
    renderInput={({ inputRef, inputProps, InputProps }) => (
      <Box sx={{ display: 'flex', alignItems: 'center' }}>
        <input ref={inputRef} {...inputProps} />
        {InputProps?.endAdornment}
      </Box>
    )}
  />
</LocalizaitonProvider>

Customized day rendering

The displayed days are customizable with the renderDay function prop. You can take advantage of the internal PickersDay component.

<LocalizaitonProvider dateAdapter={AdapterDateFns}>
  <DatePicker
    label="Week picker"
    value={selectedDate}
    onChange={handleDateChange}
    renderDay={renderWeekPickerDay}
    renderInput={(params) => <TextField {...params} variant="standard" />}
    inputFormat="'Week of' MMM d"
  />
</LocalizaitonProvider>

Dynamic data

Sometimes it may be necessary to display additional info right in the calendar. Here's an example of prefetching and displaying server-side data using the onMonthChange, loading, and renderDay props.
