show(options, successCallback, errorCallback)

success Function(date) - Supported Supported The success callback
cancel Function() - Supported Supported The cancel callback
error Function(err) - Supported Supported The error callback
android Object {} optional ignored Android specific options

When providing the clearText property, an extra button is shown with intent to clear the current date. When the user taps this button, the success callback will be called with an undefined date. From a UI perspective, this button should be hidden by application code when no date is currently set by omitting the property, but this is up to you.

Android options

Name Type Default Description
theme int Theme_DeviceDefault_Dialog android.R.style theme
is24HourView boolean true Use a 24 hour clock

On Lollipop and upwards the date and time pickers changed to calendar and radial pickers. If you want to use spinners (for example to use minuteInterval), use a built-in android.R.style theme that shows a date and time picker with spinners or read up here how to customize this.


document.addEventListener("deviceready", onDeviceReady, false);
function onDeviceReady() {

    var myDate = new Date(); // From model.

        mode: "date",
        date: myDate,
        success: function(newDate) {
            // Handle new date.
            myDate = newDate;


Hide the date time picker.

If the picker is currently being shown and a cancel-callback was provided in the options, the callback will be called when the picker is hidden.
