BlueprintJS is a React-based UI toolkit for the web. This library is very optimized and popular for building interfaces that are complex data-dense for desktop applications. DatePicker Component helps the user to choose a single date. We can use the following approach in ReactJS to use the ReactJS Blueprint DatePicker Component.

DatePicker Props:

  • canClearSelection: It allows the user to clear the selection by clicking the currently selected day.
  • className: It is used to denote a space-delimited list of class names to pass along to a child element.
  • clearButtonText: It is used to denote the text for the reset button in the action bar.
  • dayPickerProps: It is used to denote the props to pass to ReactDayPicker.
  • defaultValue: It is used to denote the initial day of the calendar that will be displayed as selected.

  • maxDate: It is used to denote the latest date the user can select.
  • minDate: It is used to denote the earliest date the user can select.
  • modifiers: It is used to denote the collection of functions that determine which modifier classes get applied to which days.
  • onChange: It is a callback function that is triggered when the user selects a day.
  • onShortcutChange: It is a callback function that is triggered when the shortcuts props are enabled and the user changes the shortcut.
  • reverseMonthAndYearMenus: The month menu will appear to the left of the year menu if this is set to true.
  • selectedShortcutIndex: It is used to denote the currently selected shortcut.
  • shortcuts: It is used to indicate whether shortcuts to quickly select a date are displayed or not.
  • showActionsBar: It is used to indicate whether the bottom bar displaying Today and Clear buttons should be shown.
  • timePickerProps: It is used to further configure the TimePicker that appears beneath the calendar.
  • timePrecision: It is used to denote the precision of time selection that accompanies the calendar.
  • todayButtonText: It is used to denote the text for the today button in the action bar.
  • value: It is used to denote the currently selected day.

DatePickerShortcut Props:

  • date: It is used to denote the date represented by this shortcut.

  • label: It is used to denote the shortcut label that appears in the list.

 

Creating React Application And Installing Module:

Step 1: Create a React application using the following command:

npx create-react-app foldername

Step 2: After creating your project folder i.e. foldername, move to it using the following command:

cd foldername

Step 3: After creating the ReactJS application, Install the required module using the following command:

npm install @blueprintjs/core
npm install @blueprintjs/datetime

Project Structure: It will look like the following.

Example: Now write down the following code in the App.js file. Here, App is our default component where we have written our code.

App.js

            <h4>ReactJS Blueprint DatePicker Component</h4>
            <DatePicker />
        </div >
    );
}
  
export default App;
