Dynamically Display the Selected Calendar Dates


Product Version 2017.3 1026
Product Progress® Telerik® UI Calendar for ASP.NET Core


How can I make the Calendar dynamically display the selected dates in another widget or container?


  1. Enable the multiple selection of the Calendar through its selectable property (set it to "multiple").
  2. Subscribe for the change event of the Calendar.
  3. Update a preferable container by appending the selected values of the Calendar with span elements.
<div class="demo-section k-content" style="text-align: center;">
    <div id="result" style="width:300px; margin:0 auto;"></div>

    <div id="calendar"></div>
    $(document).ready(function() {

            selectable: "multiple",
            change: onChange

    function onChange(e) {

        var dates = e.sender.selectDates()

    function updateResult(dates) {
        if (dates.length > 0) {
            var result = "";
            for (var i = 0; i < dates.length; i++) {
                var newdate = kendo.toString(dates[i], "yyyy/MM/dd");
                result += "<span class='selectedName'>" + newdate + "</span>";
        } else {
            result = "No dates selected.";
    #result {
        padding-bottom: 15px;

    #result:after {
        content: '';
        display: block;
        clear: both;

    .selectedName {
        padding: 5px 10px;
        background: #aaa;
        color: white;
        float: left;
        margin-right: 5px;
        margin-bottom: 5px;
        border-radius: 10px;
