DateRangePicker HtmlHelper Overview

The DateRangePicker HtmlHelper extension is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI DateRangePicker widget.

For more information on the HtmlHelper, refer to the article on the DateRangePicker HtmlHelper for ASP.NET MVC.

Configuration

The following example demonstrates the basic configuration for the DateRangePicker.

Example
    @(Html.Kendo().DateRangePicker()
        .Name("daterangepicker") // The name of the DateRangePicker is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the widget.
        .Min(new DateTime(1900, 1, 1)) // Sets the min date of the DateRangePicker.
        .Max(new DateTime(2099, 12, 31)) // Sets the min date of the DateRangePicker.
        .Range(r => r.Start(DateTime.Now).End(DateTime.Now.AddDays(10))) // Sets the range of the DateRangePicker.
    )

Event Handling

You can subscribe to all DateRangePicker events.

The following example demonstrates how to subscribe to events by a handler name.

Example
    @(Html.Kendo().DateRangePicker()
      .Name("daterangepicker")
      .Events(e => e
            .Open("daterangepicker_open")
            .Close("daterangepicker_close")
            .Change("daterangepicker_change")
      )
    )
    <script>
    function daterangepicker_open() {
        //Handle the open event
    }

    function daterangepicker_close() {
        //Handle the close event
    }

    function daterangepicker_change() {
        //Handle the change event
    }
    </script>

Reference

Existing Instances

To reference an existing Kendo UI DateRangePicker instance, use the jQuery.data() method. Once a reference has been established, use the DateRangePicker API to control its behavior.

The following example demonstrates how to access an existing DateRangePicker instance.

Example
    //Place this after your Kendo UI DateRangePicker for ASP.NET Core declaration.
    <script>
    $(function() {
    //Notice that the Name() of the DateRangePicker is used to get its client-side instance.
        var daterangepicker = $("#daterangepicker").data("kendoDateRangePicker");
    });
    </script>
