Angular Material 8 Datepicker Tutorial with Examples

Angular Material 8 Data Table tutorial is going to be explained in this tutorial. We’ll build an Angular 8 app to show you how to work with Angular Material 8 datepicker. Angular Material is a ui library which offers plenty of ui components to build modern user-centric interfaces.

Angular Material Datepicker service works with `` directive. It allows users to select a date from the angular material calendar. To get the dates working with in an Angular project, we need to import MatDatepickerModule API.

A datepicker is a combination of text input and a calendar pop-up generated via matDatepicker property. In this tutorial, we will teach you how to configure the required dependency to implement datepicker control in an Angular project.

Angular Material Datepicker Tutorial

Select the Angular material theme from the given options:

? Choose a prebuilt theme name, or "custom" for a custom theme: Indigo/Pink

❯ Indigo/Pink        [ Preview: ] 
  Deep Purple/Amber  [ Preview: ] 
  Pink/Blue Grey     [ Preview: ] 
  Purple/Green       [ Preview: ]

3 – Create Specific Angular Material Module File

In this part of the tutorial, we’ll create a specific angular material module file. As we know Angular material offers wide range of ui components so that we can import the angular material ui components in this file for easy manageability.

Go to app > angular-material.module.ts file and include the following code. This file will be imported in app.module.ts file.

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { 
} from '@angular/material';

   imports: [
   exports: [

export class AngularMaterialModule { }

Now, go to app.module.ts file and import the AngularMaterialModule.

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
/* Angular material 8 */
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import { AngularMaterialModule } from './angular-material.module';
import { NgModule, CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA } from '@angular/core';
declarations: [
imports: [
providers: [],
bootstrap: [AppComponent],
export class AppModule { }

4 – Adding Angular Material Datepicker

In next step we’ll add an input field which will show datepicker in frontend.

Understand Angular Datepicker input field

Angular material datepicker is a combination of text input and calendar popup.

To toggle on Angular calendar icon, we use datepicker toggle button as mentioned in the example below.

The `` tag is a wrapper for input fields in an angular material form.

5 – Setting up the Angular Material Calendar Starting View

Setting up the calendar view is not rocket science in Angular material. We can use the startView property of `` date field. The calendar view can be set to month, year, or multi-year.

Go to app.component.html file and add the following code.

Go to app.component.ts file and add the following code.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
selector: 'app-root',
templateUrl: './app.component.html',
styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
startDate = new Date(2000, 0, 2);

  • Using CLI
  • Using Visual Studio Code
1. Using CLI

To create a workspace:

  • Navigate to the desired directory where you want to create your workspace using cd command in the Terminal/Command prompt
  • Then in the directory write this command on your terminal and provide the name of the app which you want to create. In my case I have mentioned DataFlair:
