Ion2 Datetime Picker--An Ionic2 Custom Datetime Picker Component based on ion-multi-picker by raychenfj

Simulate IOS date and time column pickers by ionic2 picker. Default Ionic DateTime Component work with only independent columns that has some validation problems. Also there is min and max issue with time validation. This one helps to solve these problems.

Note: MomentJS requred for using some features of the package




Code of this example here



npm install ion2-datetime-picker --save


1.Import MultiPickerModule to your app/module.

import { MultiPickerModule } from 'ion2-datetime-picker';
  declarations: [
  imports: [
    MultiPickerModule //Import MultiPickerModule
  bootstrap: [IonicApp],
  entryComponents: [
  providers: []
export class AppModule {}

2.Add ion-multi-picker to your html template.

        <ion-label>Simple TimePicker</ion-label>
        <ion-multi-picker item-content></ion-multi-picker>

Note: Don't miss the item-content attribute

Like other ionic components, you can use [formControl] to bind your data.

import { FormBuilder, FormGroup } from '@angular/forms';
constructor() {
  this.formGroup = new FormBuilder().group({
    time: [moment().format()]
        <ion-label>Default Value</ion-label>
        <ion-multi-picker item-content [formControl]="formGroup.controls.time"></ion-multi-picker>

Set type to date to use datepicker.

        <ion-label>Disabled Picker</ion-label>
        <ion-multi-picker item-content type="date" [formControl]=""></ion-multi-picker>

If for some reason, all the possible values of the column are non-valid, this exception is raised:

  • Ion2 datetime picker: column "<> " should have at least one option -


You can use some utils methods:

import { MultiPickerUtils } from 'ion2-datetime-picker';
let variable = MultiPickerUtils.minuteRound('2016-12-10T11:32:44+03:00', 15);
  • minuteRound(val: string|moment.Moment, rounding: number): moment.Moment

Returns nearest from below moment for val with minutes that multiple for rounding


Welcome issue report, PR and contributors. Help me improve it.

Fork and git clone this project, most code for the multi picker is under src/app/components/multi-picker.

The unit test framework is karma + webpack + jasmine. And e2e test is protractor.

Add your unit test and use npm test to start karma.

Debug your unit test using npm run test-watch and open http://localhost:9876/debug.html

Add your e2e test, run ionic serve and then in another terminal use npm run e2e to run protractor.

You can also add your use case in the app/pages.
