DatePicker PHP Class Overview

The Kendo UI DatePicker for PHP is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI DatePicker widget.

Getting Started

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI DatePicker for PHP.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for PHP—include the autoloader, JavaScript, and CSS files.

Step 2 Create a DatePicker.

Example
    <?php
    $datepicker = new \Kendo\UI\DatePicker('datepicker');
    $datepicker->min(new DateTime('1900-01-01'))
               ->max(new DateTime('2099-12-31'))
               ->value(new DateTime('today', new DateTimeZone('UTC')));
    ?>

Step 3 Output the DatePicker by echoing the result of the render method.

Example
    <?php
    echo $datepicker->render();
    ?>

Event Handling

You can subscribe to all DatePicker events.

Specify Function Names

The example below demonstrates how to subscribe for events by specifying a JavaScript function name.

Example
    <?php
    $datepicker = new \Kendo\UI\DatePicker('datepicker');

    // The 'datepicker_change' JavaScript function will handle the 'change' event of the datepicker
    $datepicker->change('datepicker_change');

    echo $datepicker->render();
    ?>
    <script>
    function datepicker_change() {
        // Handle the change event
    }
    </script>

Provide Inline Code

The example below demonstrates how to subscribe to events by providing inline JavaScript code.

Example
    <?php
    $datepicker = new \Kendo\UI\DatePicker('datepicker');

    // Provide inline JavaScript code that will handle the 'change' event of the datepicker
    $datepicker->change('function() { /* Handle the change event */ }');

    echo $datepicker->render();
    ?>

Reference

Client-Side Instances

You are able to reference an existing DatePicker instance via the jQuery.data(). Once a reference is established, use the DatePicker API to control its behavior.

Example
    <?php
    $datepicker = new \Kendo\UI\DatePicker('datepicker');
    echo $datepicker->render();
    ?>
    <script>
    $(function() {
        // The constructor parameter is used as the 'id' HTML attribute of the datepicker
        var datepicker = $("#datepicker").data("kendoDatePicker")
    });
    </script>
