ReactJS Date Picker

To create a date picker in a React.js application need to use various libraries and components that simplify the process. One popular choice is the react-datepicker library. Here’s how you can set up a basic date picker using react-datepicker:

  1. Create a new React application if you haven’t already:
Bash
npx create-react-app date-picker-app
cd date-picker-app
  1. Install the react-datepicker library:
Bash
npm install react-datepicker
  1. Import the necessary components and set up your date picker in a React component. Here’s a simple example:
TypeScript
import React, { useState } from 'react';
import DatePicker from 'react-datepicker';
import 'react-datepicker/dist/react-datepicker.css';

function App() {
  const [selectedDate, setSelectedDate] = useState(null);

  const handleDateChange = (date) => {
    setSelectedDate(date);
  };

  return (
    <div className="App">
      <h1>Date Picker Example</h1>
      <DatePicker
        selected={selectedDate}
        onChange={handleDateChange}
        dateFormat="dd/MM/yyyy" // Customize the date format
        isClearable // Add a clear button
      />
      {selectedDate && (
        <p>Selected Date: {selectedDate.toLocaleDateString()}</p>
      )}
    </div>
  );
}

export default App;
  1. Start your development server:
Bash
npm start

This code sets up a simple date picker using the react-datepicker library. When a date is selected, it updates the selectedDate state variable, and you can display the selected date in your component as desired.

You can customize the date format, appearance, and behavior of the date picker by referring to the react-datepicker documentation: https://github.com/Hacker0x01/react-datepicker

Additionally, you can explore other date picker libraries for React, such as react-datepicker2 or react-dates, depending on your specific requirements.
