Disabled Dates

The DateRangePicker allows you to disable specific days which are not intended to be selected by the end user such as weekends and national holidays.

To disable a date in the DateRangePicker, use either of the following approaches:

Setting an Array

To disable dates by setting an array, list the names of the days that will be disabled by using the first letters from their names in English.

    <div id="daterangepicker"></div>

    <script>
        var start = new Date();
        var end = new Date(start.getFullYear(), start.getMonth(), start.getDate() + 10);
        $("#daterangepicker").kendoDateRangePicker({
            range: [start, end],
            disableDates: ["we", "th"],
        });
    </script>

Adding a Function

To disable dates by using a function, set the return value for the date that will be disabled to true.

    <div id="daterangepicker"></div>

    <script>
        $("#daterangepicker").kendoDateRangePicker({
            disableDates: function (date) {
                var disabled = [13,14,20,21];
                if (date && disabled.indexOf(date.getDate()) > -1 ) {
                    return true;
                } else {
                    return false;
                }
            }
        });
    </script>
