Angular 2+ Date range picker.

Build Status npm version last commit

This Angular Material plugin is compatible with Angular 2+ and is Ivy compatible. It leverages moment.js to handle date manipulation and parsing. The base for this plugin was originally the Bootstrap Date Range Picker, but its dependencies on jQuery and Bootstrap were removed. Angular Material themes are fully supported since v3.0.0, so you can just drop this component into an existing Material project and it will blend right into your application.



Angular ngx-daterangepicker-material
>=9.0.0 v4.x.x
<9.0.0 v2.x.x
>=9.0.0 depends on @angular/material v3.x


Install the plugin from npm:

npm install ngx-daterangepicker-material --save .

import NgxDaterangepickerMd in your module:

import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
import { NgxDaterangepickerMd } from 'ngx-daterangepicker-material';
import { App } from './app';

    imports: [
        ... ,
    declarations: [App],
    bootstrap:    [App]
export class AppModule {}

Usage example


<input type="text" ngxDaterangepickerMd [(ngModel)]="selected" class="form-control"/>


selected: {startDate: Moment, endDate: Moment};

with some options:


<input type="text" matInput
    [locale]="{applyLabel: 'ok', format: 'DD-MM-YYYY'}"


selected: {start: Moment, end: Moment};

You can play with our online demo here and browse our demo code here.

Inline usage

You can use the component directly in your templates, which will set its inline mode to true, in which case the calendar won't hide after date/range selection. You can then use the events: rangeClicked or datesUpdated or choosedDate to get its selection state.

<ngx-daterangepicker-material (choosedDate)="choosedDate($event)">

Available options

autoApply, showDropdowns, singleDatePicker, showWeekNumbers, showISOWeekNumbers, alwaysShowCalendars, showClearButton, showCancel

These options are booleans


(function) A function that is passed each date in the calendars before they are displayed, and may return a string or array of CSS class names to apply to that date's calendar cell


(function) A function that is passed each date in the two calendars before they are displayed, and may return true or false to indicate whether that date should be available for selection or not.


(function) A function that is passed each date in the two calendars before they are displayed, and may return a text to be displayed as a tooltip.

minDate, maxDate

To set the minimal and maximal date, these options are a moment date


To set max number of the date we can choose


the locale options is an object with:

    format: 'MM/DD/YYYY', // could be 'YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss.SSSSZ'
    displayFormat: 'MM/DD/YYYY', // default is format value
    direction: 'ltr', // could be rtl
    weekLabel: 'W',
    separator: ' To ', // default is ' - '
    cancelLabel: 'Cancel', // detault is 'Cancel'
    applyLabel: 'Okay', // detault is 'Apply'
    clearLabel: 'Clear', // detault is 'Clear'
    customRangeLabel: 'Custom range',
    daysOfWeek: moment.weekdaysMin(),
    monthNames: moment.monthsShort(),
    firstDay: 1 // first day is monday

Check here for setting the global locale

startKey and endKey

Theses 2 options are for the key you want for the value, default are startDate and endDate, it means the value we have from ngModel are: {startDate: Date, endDate: Date} by default;

Specifiyng startKey and endKey would have different model:


<input type="text" ngxDaterangepickerMd startKey="start" endKey="end" [(ngModel)]="model">

the model we got would be: {start: Date, end: Date}


(object) Set predefined date ranges the user can select from. Each key is the label for the range, and its value an array with two dates representing the bounds of the range. As an example:

<input type="text" ngxDaterangepickerMd startKey="start" endKey="end" [ranges]="ranges" [(ngModel)]="model">
ranges: any = {
    'Today': [moment(), moment()],
    'Yesterday': [moment().subtract(1, 'days'), moment().subtract(1, 'days')],
    'Last 7 Days': [moment().subtract(6, 'days'), moment()],
    'Last 30 Days': [moment().subtract(29, 'days'), moment()],
    'This Month': [moment().startOf('month'), moment().endOf('month')],
    'Last Month': [moment().subtract(1, 'month').startOf('month'), moment().subtract(1, 'month').endOf('month')]

Other options with ranges

You can use bellow options when using the ranges. The default are false.

Attribut Type Description
alwaysShowCalendars boolean set to true if you want to display the ranges with the calendar
keepCalendarOpeningWithRange boolean set to true if you want the calendar won't be closed after choosing a range
showRangeLabelOnInput boolean set to true if you want to display the range label on input
customRangeDirection boolean set to true if you want to allow selection range from end date first
lockStartDate boolean set to true if you want to lock start date and change only the end date

Open datepicker from outside

It is possible to open datepicker from outside. You should create an input with attached datepicker directive and a button with "ngx-daterangepicker-action" class (to prevent triggering of clickOutside).


    <a class="ngx-daterangepicker-action" (click)="openDatepicker()">
    @ViewChild(DaterangepickerDirective, { static: false }) pickerDirective: DaterangepickerDirective;
  openDatepicker() {;


You have to set the attribute timePicker to true if you want to enable the timepicker.

You can use theses options:

Attribut Type Description
timePicker24Hour boolean set to true if you want to set the timepicker to 24h instead of having AM and PM
timePickerIncrement number set the value increment of the minutes (eg: for 12 there would be 0mn, 15mn, 30mn, 45mn,)
timePickerSeconds boolean set true if you want do display second's select
