DateTimePicker HtmlHelper Overview

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

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


The following example demonstrates the basic configuration for the DateTimePicker.

        .Name("datetimepicker") //The name of the DateTimePicker is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the widget.
        .Min(new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 10, 0, 0)) //Set the min time of the DateTimePicker.
        .Max(new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 20, 0, 0)) //Set the min date of the DateTimePicker.
        .Value(DateTime.Now) //Set the value of the DateTimePicker.

Event Handling

You can subscribe to all DateTimePicker events.

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

      .Events(e => e
    function datetimepicker_open() {
        //Handle the open event.

    function datetimepicker_close() {
        //Handle the close event.

    function datetimepicker_change() {
        //Handle the change event.


Existing Instances

To reference an existing Kendo UI DateTimePicker instance, use the configuration option. Once a reference is established, use the DateTimePicker API to control its behavior.

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

  //Put this after your Kendo UI DateTimePicker for ASP.NET Core declaration.
  $(function() {
  //Notice that the Name() of the DateTimePicker is used to get its client-side instance.
      var datetimepicker = $("#datetimepicker").data("kendoDateTimePicker");
