DatePicker Overview

The Kendo UI DatePicker widget allows the user to select a date from a calendar or through a direct input and provides options for using custom templates for its Month view, setting minimum and maximum dates, a start view, and a depth for navigation.

Initializing the DatePicker

The following example demonstrates how to initialize the DatePicker.

  • The DatePicker copies any styles and CSS classes from the input element to the wrapper element and visible input.
  • The first day of the week in the DatePicker calendar depends on the applied culture.
    <input id="datePicker" />

    <script>
        $(document).ready(function(){
            $("#datePicker").kendoDatePicker();
        });
    </script>
