I know this is a tiny component but many people use it in production (high 5 to all of us) - if you happen to use this component please click the star button (at the top of the page) - it means a lot to all the contributors.

Peer Dependencies

Peer dependencies:

  • Angular 8.x or higher (1.x will not work)
  • moment.js 2.22.2 or higher for date parsing and formatting
  • bootstrap 4.x for css/layout
  • open-iconic for the default icon's (you can use any icon library you like)

jQuery is NOT required.

Usage with Angular CLI

If you are using the Angular CLI there are a few simple steps to add this component to your project.

First, install this module and it's peer dependencies.

npm install --save angular-bootstrap-datetimepicker bootstrap moment open-iconic

Then update ./src/app/app.module.ts to include the following:

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { DlDateTimeDateModule, DlDateTimePickerModule } from 'angular-bootstrap-datetimepicker';
  declarations: [
  imports: [
    DlDateTimeDateModule,  // <--- Determines the data type of the model
  providers: [FormsModule],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Next, add the following to ./src/app/app.component.html


Next, add the following to ./src/styles.css

@import '~bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css';
@import '~open-iconic/font/css/open-iconic-bootstrap.css';

Note: This component uses open-iconic icons by default, but you can use any icon library that supports styling with classes.

Finally, run npm start and you should see the date/time picker on http://localhost:4200/

By default, the date/time picker is as wide as it's container { width:100% }. It uses bootstrap's flex row and col classes to layout the date/time picker into rows and columns. If the parent container is too narrow (less than 340px in english), the row and column layout may wrap in ways that are not attractive. Other languages/locals may require a wider container to fit the contents.

End-to-End (e2e) testing with protractor

The user interactions with a date-time picker make it difficult to write e2e tests that exactly replicate the users interaction with the picker.

Fortunately, this repository contains a file you can use in your e2e tests to cause the date/time picker to select any specified date.

See ./e2e/src/dl-date-time-picker-protractor.ts for details.


Use the automated configuration generator (please let me know if it does not work for your use case!), or see for the automatically generated documentation.

First day of week

The first day of the week is determined by moment's i18n settings. For example, setting the locale to 'fr' will cause Monday to be the first day of the week.

Display of year, month, day, hour, am/pm, and minute formats

The format of hours and minutes is also determined by moment's i18n settings.

hours are displayed using ll as the format. minutes are displayed using lll as the format.

I recommend you use the default locale settings from Moment (if they are incorrect, submit a PR to moment to correct the settings) If for some reason the default Moment settings will not work, you can customize the existing locale or create a custom locale with the desired formats.


You can generate the documentation by running npm run documentation or see


The DlDateTimePickerComponent component adds aria-label attributes to the left, right, and up buttons in addition to all calendar cells where the text of the cell may not fully describe the value.

Keyboard Accessibility

Shortcut Action

RIGHT_ARROW Go to the cell to the right
UP_ARROW Go to the cell above
DOWN_ARROW Go to the cell below

This component was written using TDD and all enhancements and changes have related tests.

We use karma and jshint to ensure the quality of the code. The easiest way to run these checks is to use gulp:

npm install
npm test

The karma task will try to open Chrome as a browser in which to run the tests. Make sure Chrome is available or change the browsers setting in karma.config.js
