Calendar Types

By default, the DatePicker works with JavaScript Date objects which support only the Gregorian calendar.,

As a result, the DatePicker does not support other calendar types such as Lunar.

To work around the default behavior of the DatePicker and simulate a different calendar type, use either of the following approaches:

  • Set the Value of the DatePicker to a date in the past.
  • Specify the Min option so that the selected date is within the valid range.

In both cases, the DatePicker uses the Gregorian calendar date. The second component only displays the Gregorian date with the Lunar year.

        .Value(new DateTime(2000, 11, 10))
        .Min(new DateTime(1400,1,1))
        .Value(new DateTime(1497, 11, 10))
