Adding background color to DatePicker container element

<SfDatePicker TValue="DateTime?"></SfDatePicker>

Full screen mode support in mobiles and tablets

The DatePicker component’s full-screen mode feature enables users to view the component popup element in full-screen mode on mobile devices with improved visibility and a better user experience. It is important to mention that this feature is exclusively available for mobile devices in both landscape and portrait orientations. To activate the full screen mode within the DatePicker component, simply set the FullScreen API value to true. This action will extend the calendar element to occupy the entire screen on mobile devices.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Calendars

<SfDatePicker TValue="DateTime?" FullScreen=true></SfDatePicker>
