Installation

The package can be installed via NPM:

npm install react-modern-datepicker --save

This package doesn't come with any dependency other than Moment.js & styled-components. Threfore, You’ll need to install React, PropTypes separately since those dependencies aren’t included in the package. Below is a simple example of how to use the ModernDatepicker in a React view.

import React from 'react';
import ModernDatepicker from 'react-modern-datepicker';
import moment from 'moment';

class Example extends React.Component {
  constructor (props) {
    super(props)
    this.state = {
      startDate: moment()
    };
    this.handleChange = this.handleChange.bind(this);
  }

  handleChange(date) {
    this.setState({
      startDate: date
    });
  }

  render() {
    return <ModernDatepicker 
          date={this.state.startDate} 
          format={'DD-MM-YYYY'} 
          showBorder        
          onChange={(date) => this.handleChange(date)}
          placeholder={'Select a date'}
        />
  }
}

You can also pass your own css to style the input element.The following example shows how to style the input element using your own css.

./App.css

//Please  note that, for this class to take the precedence over the 
//default css, we should repeat the class name like below (instead of .color, we are 
// using .color.color)
.color.color {
    border-radius: 0;
    -moz-border-radius: 0;
    -webkit-border-radius: 0;
    font-size: 15px;
    font-weight: 600;
    padding: 10px 10px 10px 5px;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #ebebeb!important;
    border: none;
    box-sizing: border-box;
    margin-top: 22px;
    box-shadow: none;
    font-family: Open Sans,sans-serif;
  }
import React from 'react';
import ModernDatepicker from 'react-modern-datepicker';
import moment from 'moment';
import './App.css';
import icon from '../assets/icon.png'; // if you want to show an icon



class Example extends React.Component {
  constructor (props) {
    super(props)
    this.state = {
      startDate: moment()
    };
    this.handleChange = this.handleChange.bind(this);
  }

  handleChange(date) {
    this.setState({
      startDate: date
    });
  }

  render() {
    return <ModernDatepicker 
          date={this.state.startDate} 
          format={'DD-MM-YYYY'} 
          showBorder        
          className='color'
          icon={icon}
          onChange={(date) => this.handleChange(date)}
          placeholder={'Select a date'}
        />
  }
}
