The DateTimePicker widget allows to you use the DateTime Picker, which is a Bootstrap form component to handle date and time data, on your forms.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

php composer.phar require "2amigos/yii2-date-time-picker-widget" "*"

or add

"2amigos/yii2-date-time-picker-widget" : "*"

to the require section of your application's composer.json file.


This widget renders a Bootstrap DateTimePicker input control. Best suitable for model with date string attribute. Its functionality is similar to Bootstrap DatePicker plugin but this widget is enhanced with Time selection.

It also allows you to restrict the views so you can use this widget as a DatePicker, TimePicker, or DateTimePicker.

There are two ways of using it, with an ActiveForm instance or as a widget setting up its model and attribute.

use dosamigos\datetimepicker\DateTimePicker;

// as a widget

<?= DateTimePicker::widget([
    'model' => $model,
    'attribute' => 'created_at',
    'language' => 'es',
    'size' => 'ms',
    'clientOptions' => [
        'autoclose' => true,
        'format' => 'dd MM yyyy - HH:ii P',
        'todayBtn' => true

// with an ActiveForm instance displayed as a TimePicker

use dosamigos\datetimepicker\DateTimePicker;
<?= $form->field($tour, 'date_from')->widget(DateTimePicker::className(), [
    'language' => 'es',
    'size' => 'ms',
    'template' => '{input}',
    'pickButtonIcon' => 'glyphicon glyphicon-time',
    'inline' => true,
    'clientOptions' => [
        'startView' => 1,
        'minView' => 0,
        'maxView' => 1,
        'autoclose' => true,
        'linkFormat' => 'HH:ii P', // if inline = true
        // 'format' => 'HH:ii P', // if inline = false
        'todayBtn' => true
