This package supports automatic linking. Usually, the only thing you need to do is to install the package, the cocoapods dependencies (as described above). Then rebuild the project by running react-native run-ios, react-native run-android or start the build from within Xcode/Android Studio. If you're running a React Native version below 0.60 or your setup is having issues with automatic linking, you can run npx react-native link react-native-date-picker and rebuild. In some occations you'll have to manually link the package. Instructions in this issue.


How do I change the divider color?

The color of the divider, separator (or whatever you choose to call it) can only be changed on android for the androidNative variant. To change it, add the following to your android AppTheme. The theme is often found in styles.xml.

<item name="colorControlNormal">#ff0000</item>

How do i change the date order? (To YYYY-MM-DD etc)

The order is determined by the locale prop. Set for instance locale='fr'to get the french preference.

How do i change the 12/24h or AM/PM format?

On iOS the 12/24h preference is determined by the locale prop. Set for instance locale='fr'to get the french preference. On Android the 12/24h format is determined by the device setting by default. Add is24hourSource="locale" to let the locale determine the device setting on android as well. When using 12h mode the AM/PM part of the picker will be displayed. It is NOT recommended to force any specific 12/24h format, but this can be achieved by, choosing a locale which has the desired 24h preference and add is24hourSource="locale".

Is it possible to show only month and year?

This is unfortunately not possible due to the limitation in DatePickerIOS. You should be able to create your own month-year picker with for instance

Why does the Android app crash in production?

If you have enabled Proguard for Android you might need to ignore some classes to get the the picker to work properly in android production/release mode. Add these lines to you proguard file (often called

-keep public class
-keep public class net.time4j.PrettyTime

Two different Android variants

On Android there are two design variants to choose from:

iOS clone Native Android
date time picker date time picker
The so called "iOS clone" looks and works similar to the ios version. It shows normally 5 lines of dates. It is enabled by default. The "Android Native" version looks more like a standard native implementation on Android. The divider color can be changed by adding the following to you Android theme:
<item name="colorControlNormal">#03b6fc</item>
androidVariant = 'iosClone'
androidVariant = 'nativeAndroid'

Three different modes

Here are some more info about the three different picker modes that are available.

Date time picker

Using the datetime mode gives you a react native date time picker where both date and time can be selected at the same time. The todays date will be replays with the string "Today" translated to the desired language. This is the default mode and look like this.

Add the optional

mode property to use this mode. Since datetime is default this could also be exclude.


The date mode displays a react native datepicker with year month and date where the year-month-date order will be adjusted to the locale. If will look similar to this:

Time picker

React Native Date Picker is a cross platform component for iOS and Android. It uses native code from respective platform to get the genuine look and feel the users expect. A strong motivation for creating this picker was the datetime mode on Android. It's quite unique for the platform and avoids two different picker popups, which normally is necessary. Instead, this datetime mode requires fewer user actions and enables a great user-experience.
