    Hello Readers,

    Today's post is about add datepicker in Cordova application. We have an date picker plugin which supports Android,iOS and windows platform.

    Install following plugin through CLI :

    $ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-datepicker

    To use this plugin functionality Cordova version should be more than 3.0, Android version should be more than 2.3 and iOS version should be more than 6.0.



    <ion-view view-title="Date picker">
        <ion-content class="has-header">
            <div class="row">
                <div class="col col-50">
                    <button class="button button-block button-balanced"


    $ = function()
        var options = {
            date: new Date(),
            mode: 'date'
        function onSuccess(date) {
            alert('Selected date: ' + date);
        function onError(error) {
            alert('Error: ' + error);
   , onSuccess, onError);

    In the above code we are using date and more parameter in options. We can add more parameters in options are as follows:

    • mode : This works in Android, iOS and windows. It defines the mode of datepicker i.e mode is a string type parameter.

    For example: Its default type is date and for iOS and Windows it can be date, time and datetime.

    • date : date is a string type parameter and works on Android, iOS and windows.

    For example: We can define a date in string format and by default it is new date().

    • minDate : We can define minimum date with this parameter and minDate is a date object for iOS and for Android it is timestamp in milliseconds. So when we are using it in Android we need to get time in milliseconds.
    • maxDate : It shows maximum date and it can be date or empty string. It works on Android, iOS and windows.
    • titleText : It works on Android and provides a label for the title. It uses set date or set time. Which should be a string.

    These are some parameters in options for more details click here .

    Hope this will help you. :)
