Getting started with Blazor DatePicker component

This section briefly explains how to include a DatePicker Component in your Blazor client-side application. You can refer to the Getting Started with Syncfusion Blazor for Client-side in Visual Studio 2019 page for introduction and configure the common specifications.

Importing Syncfusion Blazor component in the application

  • Install Syncfusion.Blazor NuGet package to the application by using the NuGet Package Manager.

Please ensure to check the Include prerelease option for our Beta release.

  • You can add the client-side resources through CDN or from NuGet package in the HEAD element of the ~/Pages/_Host.cshtml page.
   <head>
           <link href="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor/styles/bootstrap4.css" rel="stylesheet" />
           @*<link href="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/blazor/{{version}}/styles/{{theme}}.css" rel="stylesheet" />*@
   </head>

For Internet Explorer 11 kindly refer the polyfills. Refer the documentation for more information.

   <head>
       <link href="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor/styles/bootstrap4.css" rel="stylesheet" />
       <script src="https://github.com/Daddoon/Blazor.Polyfill/releases/download/3.0.1/blazor.polyfill.min.js"></script>
   </head>

Adding component package to the application

Open ~/_Imports.razor file and import the Syncfusion.Blazor.Calendars package.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Calendars

Add SyncfusionBlazor service in Startup.cs

Open the Startup.cs file and add services required by Syncfusion components using services.AddSyncfusionBlazor() method. Add this method in the ConfigureServices function as follows.

using Syncfusion.Blazor;

namespace BlazorApplication
{
    public class Startup
    {
        ....
        ....
        public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
        {
            ....
            ....
            services.AddSyncfusionBlazor();
        }
    }
}

To enable custom client side resource loading from CRG or CDN. You need to disable resource loading by AddSyncfusionBlazor(true) and load the scripts in the HEAD element of the ~/Pages/_Host.cshtml page.

   <head>
           <script src="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/blazor/18.1.55/syncfusion-blazor.min.js"></script>
   </head>

The following code shows a basic DatePicker component.

<SfDatePicker TValue="DateTime?" Placeholder='Choose a Date'></SfDatePicker>

Setting the Value and Min and Max dates

The following example demonstrates how to set the Value and Min and Max dates on initializing the DatePicker. Here, you can select a date within the range from 5th to 27th of this month. TValue specifies the type of the DatePicker component.

<SfDatePicker TValue="DateTime?" Value='@DateValue' Min='@MinDate' Max='@MaxDate'></SfDatePicker>

@code {
    public DateTime? DateValue {get;set;} = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year,DateTime.Now.Month,10);
    public DateTime MinDate {get;set;} = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year,DateTime.Now.Month,05);
    public DateTime MaxDate {get;set;} = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year, DateTime.Now.Month, 27);
}

The output will be as follows.
