jQuery Date & Time Date & Time for jQuery and jQuery Mobile

Date & Time - Mobile & Desktop usage

Change demo
Mobile & Desktop usage
Download and use example

Use it for mobile, desktop and everything in between by setting it up responsively (view responsive demo). The component can be rendered for touch UI - great for smartphones and tablets - and for non-touch UI screens like laptop and desktops. The main difference is that they are optimized for either touch or pointer interaction.

Date & Time - App & Website usage

Change demo
App & Website usage
Download and use example

Use it on any custom input or with Mobiscroll form fields. The component is triggered on input focus, but is can also be triggered on a button click.

Let’s say you already have a form and you want to enhance the date picking experience. No problem, the date & time can be used on your existing fields. Most of our examples are presented using Mobiscroll form fields, but you get the picture.

Date & Time - Mobile display modes

Change demo
Mobile display modes
Download and use example

Depending on your requirements you can use different display modes for both mobile and desktop. On mobile the component can be rendered either at the top or bottom of the screen, in the center of the screen, anchored to an input or any object for that matter and it can also be embedded in any inline content.

Date & Time - Desktop display modes

Change demo
Desktop display modes
Download and use example

Use the available display modes on mobile and desktop. On larger screens you have slightly different rendering options suitable for the large form-factor and pointer interaction. Use the top, bottom and center modes for getting it in front of the users or stay in context and anchor it to the input.

Date & Time - Responsive behavior

Change demo
Responsive behavior
Download and use example

Configure the date & time to behave and render differently on different sized screens. You can have a bottom positioned date scroller on mobile, a popover anchored to the input on tablet and desktop display on large sceens.

All this can be configured under the responsive setting. Think of it as configuring how the settings change based on the screen-size.

Date & Time - Date picker

Change demo

Use the component for date selection and only show the day, month and year wheels. Use the dateFormat and dateWheel settings to customize the experience. Check out some great examples for custom formats and for hiding the day resulting in a month/year picker.

Use the same component but different configuration for time and date-time selection.

Once we started using Mobiscroll, our conversions have improved and the experience became much more delightful!

Date & Time - Time-only picker

Change demo

Use the component for time selection with wheels for hours, minutes and seconds. Control the format - timeFormat and wheels - timeWheels and switch between AM/PM or 24h formats. Check out some great examples for custom formats.

Use the same component but different configuration for date and date-time selection.

Date & Time - Date & time picker

Change demo
Date & time picker
Download and use example

Use the component for a combined date & time picker. Select a day, month, year along with hour and minutes on separate wheels or have the date on a single wheel and the time on separate wheels.

Show the date and time in localized formats or customize it to your needs. Take a look at some of the formatting options available.

Besides the combined view you can use it as a date-only and time-only picker.

Date & Time - Month and year picker

Change demo
Month and year picker
Download and use example

Customize the wheels and format the date picker for month & year. Choose a month/year format for credit card expiration date.

This and even more can be done with the dateWheels setting.

Date & Time - Min & max values

Change demo

Use the min and max settings to restrict selection. This is useful to make the selection faster and to reduce user errors. A great example is date of birth. You want to disable future dates and maybe add age verification? Simply restrict values up to 18 years in the past.

Date & Time - Setting time select steps

Change demo
Setting time select steps
Download and use example

Adjust the minute, hour steps in the time picker. By default it is incrementing by one, however you can change it to anything you’d like. Need to pick values from every five minutes? You can do it with the steps setting.

Date & Time - Date types

Change demo

The date & time picker supports multiple data types. You can work with JS date objects - new Date(1995, 11, 17, 15, 24), ISO date strings - '2008-09-15T15:53:00' and moment.js objects - moment([2018, 3, 27, 12, 15]).

Date & Time - Formatting values

Change demo
Formatting values
Download and use example

Set the date and time format accordingly. Formats are inherited from the localization settings, but can be overriden with the dateFomat, timeFormat settings. The scrollable wheels are controlled by the dateWheels and timeWheels settings.

Date & Time - Disabling values

Change demo

Disable dates with the invalid setting. It supports exact dates, ranges, recurring dates and weekdays. Time can also be invalidated by passing exact values and ranges.

Using invalids is essential to a great UX. First make sure you have the min & max values right and then work your way back to invalids. If you would like to re-enable dates inside an invalid range, you can do it with the valid setting. Having it set up correctly not just enhances the UX, but improves performance.

Date & Time - Setting values

Change demo

Values can change a couple different ways: though defaults, intracting with the UI or programatically. The date and time picker defaults to now, which can be easily overridden with the defaultValue setting. The values are set by interacting with the component and making a selection or it can be done programatically with the setVal method. Use the buttons setting for showing/hiding set, cancel, clear, now or add custom buttons.

Date & Time - Theming capabilities

Change demo
Theming capabilities
Download and use example

Customize the look and feel with themes or custom CSS. There are four levels of customization:

  • Base themes: Choose between Mobiscroll, iOS, Android Material and Windows.
  • Light or dark: Every theme has a light and dark variant. Setting the themeVariant to 'auto' will switch based on system settings.
  • Custom themes: Use the theme builder to customize the colors and make it match your brand.
  • Custom CSS: If you need further customization, the sky is the limit with CSS overrides.

You can also see how every example looks by changing the theme from the header.

Date & Time - RTL Support

Change demo

Shipping with full RTL support, choose left-to-right or right-to-left with the rtl setting. The value is inherited from the localization settings, and can be manually overriden by explicitly turning it ON and OFF.

Date & Time - Lifecycle events

Change demo

The date & time ships with different event hooks for deep customization. Events are triggered through the lifecycle of the component where you can tie in custom functionality and code. While users interact with the UI events like onChange, onSet, onInit ... will be triggered. Interact with the example and check the event log for the output.
