How Does It Work

  1. Get a Date or string from input field.
  2. If input value is string, convert it to Date object and save it internally.
  3. When the input field is clicked, show date time picker with date value.
  4. When date time is selected, set
    function of selected date for formatting.
  5. Set input field with the selected value.


  1. install datetime-picker

    $ npm install @ngui/datetime-picker --save
  2. If you are using SystemJS, add

    to your
    map[‘@ngui/datetime-picker'] = 'node_modules/@ngui/datetime-picker/dist';
    packages[‘@ngui/datetime-picker'] = { main: '@ngui/datetime-picker.umd.js', defaultExtension: 'js’ }
  3. import NguiDatetimePickerModule to your AppModule

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { FormsModule } from "@angular/forms";
    import { BrowserModule  } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    import { NguiDatetimePickerModule } from '@ngui/datetime-picker';

    @NgModule({ imports: [BrowserModule, FormsModule, NguiDatetimePickerModule], declarations: [AppComponent], bootstrap: [ AppComponent ] }) export class AppModule { }

Use it in your code

Override default style

The default style is written in

. This can be overwritten by giving a more detailed css selector.


#my-div .ngui-datetime-picker {
  background-color: blue;

Override built-in date parser and date formatter

The default date parser and formatter can only handle 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM' format if you are not using momentjs. If you use momentjs, you can use momentjs dateformat by adding the following in your html.

If you are using moment and want to pass in a string date value in one format but display it in a different format you can use both date-format and parse-format:

If you want to have your own date format without using momentjs, please override

function. For example,
import { NguiDatetimePickerModule, NguiDatetime } from '@ngui/datetime-picker';

// Override Date object formatter NguiDatetime.formatDate = (date: Date) : string => { ..... my own function that returns a string .... };

// Override Date object parser NguiDatetime.parseDate = (str: any): Date => { .... my own function that returns a date ... } ;

@NgModule({ imports: [BrowserModule, FormsModule, NguiDatetimePickerModule], declarations: [AppComponent], bootstrap: [ AppComponent ] }) export class AppModule { }

In addition, you can override other static variables of

class. The following is the list of variables that you can override.
  • days: default: 1,2,....31
  • daysOfWeek: default: Sunday, Monday, .....
  • weekends: default: 0,6
  • firstDayOfWeek: default: 0 as in Sunday
  • months: default: January, February
  • formatDate: default: returns YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM
  • parseDate: default: returns date from YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM
  • locale: default: 'date', 'year', 'month', time', 'hour', 'minute'
