    show(options, successCallback, errorCallback)
    Show the plugin with specified options and callbacks.

    Note: The successCallback and errorCallback respectively will be ignored if the success or error callback is provided on the options argument.


    Name Type Default Android iOS
    mode String date date, time, datetime date, time, datetime The display mode
    date Date required required The initial date to display
    allowOldDates boolean true Supported Supported Allow older dates to be selected
    allowFutureDates boolean true Supported Supported Allow future dates to be selected
    minDate Date Supported Supported Set the minimum date that can be selected
    maxDate Date Supported Supported Set the maximum date that can be selected
    minuteInterval int 1 >= Honeycomb Supported For minute spinner the number of minutes per step
    locale String (user default) - Supported The locale to use for text and date/time
    okText String (os default) Supported Supported The text to use for the ok button
    cancelText String (os default) Supported Supported The text to use for the cancel button
    clearText String Supported Supported The text to use for the clear button
    titleText String Depends on theme Supported The text to use for the dialog title
    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 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 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.
