Picker Mode

The DateTimePicker for .NET MAUI exposes PickerMode property of Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.PickerMode type which can be set to one of the following values:

  • Popup—Shows the UI for picking a date inside a popup. It's the default value for mobile (Android and iOS);
  • DropDown— Opens the UI for picking a date inside a dropdown. It's the default value for Desktop (Windows, macOS);

Here is a sample of PickerMode set to Popup:

<telerik:RadDateTimePicker Date="2020,05,15" 
                                PickerMode="Popup" />

Check below the result on mobile and desktop:

Quick example of PickerMode set to DropDown:

<telerik:RadDateTimePicker Date="2020,05,15" 
                            PickerMode="DropDown" />

Check the result of DropDown mode on mobile and desktop:

Toggle Button

In addition, DateTimePicker exposes IsToggleButtonVisible property which when set to True renders an "arrow" button for opening the UI for picking a date. By default, IsToggleButtonVisible is enabled for Desktop and is disabled for mobile platforms. Still, you can explicitly apply it in both cases:

<telerik:RadDateTimePicker Date="2020,05,15"
                                PickerMode="DropDown"
                                IsToggleButtonVisible="True" />
