BlueprintJS is a React-based UI toolkit for the web. This library is very optimized and popular for building interfaces that are complex data-dense for desktop applications. DateRangeInput Component helps the user to enter the date range. It is used in forms where the user must enter a date range. We can use the following approach in ReactJS to use the ReactJS Blueprint DateRangeInput Component.

DateRangeInput Props:

  • allowSingleDayRange: It is used to indicate whether the start and end dates of range can be the same day.
  • className: It is used to denote a space-delimited list of class names to pass along to a child element.
  • closeOnSelection: It is used to indicate whether the calendar popover should close when a date range is fully selected.
  • contiguousCalendarMonths: It is used to indicate whether displayed months in the calendar are contiguous.
  • dayPickerProps: It is used to denote the props to pass to ReactDayPicker.
  • defaultValue: It is used to denote the default date range to be used in the component when uncontrolled.
  • disabled: It is used to indicate whether the text inputs are non-interactive.

  • localeUtils: It is used to denote the collection of functions that provide internationalization support.
  • maxDate: It is used to denote the latest date the user can select.
  • minDate: It is used to denote the earliest date the user can select.
  • modifiers: It is used to denote the collection of functions that determine which modifier classes get applied to which days.
  • onChange: It is a callback function that is triggered when the user selects a day.
  • onError: It is a function that is triggered when the user finishes typing in a new date and the date causes an error state.
  • outOfRangeMessage: It is used to denote the error message to display when selected date is out of range.
  • overlappingDatesMessage: It is used to denote the error message to display when selected dates overlap.
  • parseDate: It is a function to deserialize user input text to a JavaScript Date object.

Creating React Application And Installing Module:

  • Step 1: Create a React application using the following command:

    npx create-react-app foldername
  •  

  • Step 2: After creating your project folder i.e. foldername, move to it using the following command:

    cd foldername
  • Step 3: After creating the ReactJS application, Install the required module using the following command:

    npm install @blueprintjs/core
    npm install @blueprintjs/datetime

Project Structure: It will look like the following.

Project Structure

Example: Now write down the following code in the App.js file. Here, App is our default component where we have written our code.

App.js




import React from 'react'
import '@blueprintjs/datetime/lib/css/blueprint-datetime.css';
import '@blueprintjs/core/lib/css/blueprint.css';
import { DateRangeInput } from "@blueprintjs/datetime";
  
function App() {
    return (
        <div style={{
            display: 'block', width: 400, padding: 30
        }}>
            <h4>ReactJS Blueprint DateRangeInput Component</h4>
            <DateRangeInput
                formatDate={date => date.toLocaleString()}
                parseDate={str => new Date(str)}
            />
        </div >
    );
}
  
export default App;


Step to Run Application: Run the application using the following command from the root directory of the project:

npm start

Output: Now open your browser and go to http://localhost:3000/, you will see the following output:
