Create DatePicker By TailWindCss + Angular

Hello friends,
Tailwind Elements has good Collection of free, popular components like modal, dropdown and many more.
https://tailwind-elements.com/docs/standard/forms/datepicker/

It has a DatePicker made by Tailwindcss and alpine js.
I just rebuild that by angular instead of alpine js

Just Show The code :D

First add TailWindCss to your project:
https://www.npmjs.com/package/@ngneat/tailwind

date-picker.component.ts:

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-DatePicker',
  templateUrl: './date-picker.html'
})
export class DatePickerComponent implements OnInit {
  MONTH_NAMES = [
    'January',
    'February',
    'March',
    'April',
    'May',
    'June',
    'July',
    'August',
    'September',
    'October',
    'November',
    'December'
  ];
  DAYS = ['Sun', 'Mon', 'Tue', 'Wed', 'Thu', 'Fri', 'Sat'];
  days = ['Sun', 'Mon', 'Tue', 'Wed', 'Thu', 'Fri', 'Sat'];
  showDatepicker = false;
  datepickerValue!: string;
  month!: number; // !: mean promis it will not be null, and it will definitely be assigned
  year!: number;
  no_of_days = [] as number[];
  blankdays = [] as number[];

  constructor() {}

  ngOnInit(): void {
    this.initDate();
    this.getNoOfDays();
  }

  initDate() {
    let today = new Date();
    this.month = today.getMonth();
    this.year = today.getFullYear();
    this.datepickerValue = new Date(this.year, this.month, today.getDate()).toDateString();
  }

  isToday(date: any) {
    const today = new Date();
    const d = new Date(this.year, this.month, date);
    return today.toDateString() === d.toDateString() ? true : false;
  }

  getDateValue(date: any) {
    let selectedDate = new Date(this.year, this.month, date);
    this.datepickerValue = selectedDate.toDateString();
    this.showDatepicker = false;
  }

  getNoOfDays() {
    const daysInMonth = new Date(this.year, this.month + 1, 0).getDate();

    // find where to start calendar day of week
    let dayOfWeek = new Date(this.year, this.month).getDay();
    let blankdaysArray = [];
    for (var i = 1; i <= dayOfWeek; i++) {
      blankdaysArray.push(i);
    }

    let daysArray = [];
    for (var i = 1; i <= daysInMonth; i++) {
      daysArray.push(i);
    }

    this.blankdays = blankdaysArray;
    this.no_of_days = daysArray;
  }

  trackByIdentity = (index: number, item: any) => item;
}

Finally Import FormsModule in to the your.module.ts

import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
@NgModule({
  imports: [
    ..., 
    FormsModule
  ]
})
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

That's it, Save and run 😏
