Getting Started with the .NET MAUI Date Picker Control

Learn how to create and configure the Syncfusion .NET MAUI Date Picker control in a .NET MAUI project using Visual Studio 2022.

In this video, I will demonstrate how to integrate the Date Picker control into a .NET MAUI project. I'll show you how to customize the Date Picker's size, programmatically select a date, add a header and footer, customize the text on the validation buttons, and adjust the date format.

The Syncfusion .NET MAUI Date Picker is a fully customizable control for selecting a date, allowing users to add and customize header text. It offers eight predefined formats for displaying date values. It supports a customizable column header view, enabling the separation of headings for each column. Additionally, the .NET MAUI Date Picker provides validation buttons (OK and Cancel) in the footer view, and you can customize both the validation buttons' text and background colors.

You can display the Date Picker as a pop-up using the dialog mode. The relative dialog mode aligns the picker at a specific position, enhancing the app's visual appeal in the UI. You can also populate date values individually with intervals for days, months, and years.

The .NET MAUI Date Picker enables date selection through tap and scroll interactions. You can restrict the selection of date items to within specified minimum and maximum dates.
