DatePicker renders a datepicker jQuery UI widget.

For example to use the datepicker with a model:

echo DatePicker::widget([
    'model' => $model,
    'attribute' => 'from_date',
    //'language' => 'ru',
    //'dateFormat' => 'yyyy-MM-dd',
]);

The following example will use the name property instead:

echo DatePicker::widget([
    'name'  => 'from_date',
    'value'  => $value,
    //'language' => 'ru',
    //'dateFormat' => 'yyyy-MM-dd',
]);

You can also use this widget in an ActiveForm using the widget() method, for example like this:

<?= $form->field($model, 'from_date')->widget(\yii\jui\DatePicker::classname(), [
    //'language' => 'ru',
    //'dateFormat' => 'yyyy-MM-dd',
]) ?>

Note that and empty string ('') and null will result in an empty text field while 0 will be interpreted as a UNIX timestamp and result in a date displayed as 1970-01-01. It is recommended to add a validation filter in your model that sets the value to null in case when no date has been entered:

[['from_date'], 'default', 'value' => null],

Property Details

$attribute public property

The model attribute that this widget is associated with. The value of the attribute will be converted using `Yii::$app->formatter->asDate()` with the $dateFormat if it is not null.

public string $attribute null
$containerOptions public property

The HTML attributes for the container tag. This is only used when $inline is true.

See also yii\helpers\Html::renderTagAttributes() for details on how attributes are being rendered.

$dateFormat public property

The format string to be used for formatting the date value. This option will be used to populate the clientOption dateFormat. The value can be one of "short", "medium", "long", or "full", which represents a preset format of different lengths.

It can also be a custom format as specified in the ICU manual. Alternatively this can be a string prefixed with php: representing a format that can be recognized by the PHP date()-function.

For example:

'MM/dd/yyyy' // date in ICU format
'php:m/d/Y' // the same date in PHP format

If not set the default value will be taken from Yii::$app->formatter->dateFormat.

public string $dateFormat null
$inline public property

If true, shows the widget as an inline calendar and the input as a hidden field.

public boolean $inline false
$language public property

The locale ID (e.g. 'fr', 'de', 'en-GB') for the language to be used by the date picker. If this property is empty, then the current application language will be used.

Since version 2.0.2 a fallback is used if the application language includes a locale part (e.g. de-DE) and the language file does not exist, it will fall back to using de.

public string $language null
$value public property

The input value. This value will be converted using `Yii::$app->formatter->asDate()` with the $dateFormat if it is not null.

public string $value null
