    Quick Start
    In This Topic

    The following quick start guide is intended to get you up and running with the DateRangePicker control. In this quick start, you start with creating a new application, add the DateRangePicker control to it, set its value and display a date range in it. When you click the drop-down button to open the calendar, the DateRangePicker control shows one calendar months, by default. However, you can change the month count displayed in the control as per your requirements. For more information on changing the number of months displayed in the DateRangePicker control, see Day and Date Range topic.

    2. In the Create a new project dialog, select Blazor App and click Next.
    3. In the Configure your new project dialog, provide name of the project you want to create in the Project name field and location for the project in the Location field. Click Create.
    4. In the Create a new Blazor app dialog, select Blazor WebAssembly App template and click Create. A new client-side Blazor app is created. Alternatively, you can also create a Blazor server-side app.

    Configure the DateRangePicker control

    Display a date range in the DateRangePicker control by simply using the Value property of the C1DateRangePicker class as shown in the following code. In this example, the Value property gets the range values from two DatePicker controls bound to the DateRangePicker control, which accepts the start date and end date to be set for displaying the date range.

    RangePickerQuickStart.razor
    Copy Code
    <C1DateRangePicker Value="_c1DateRangePickerSettings.DateRange"></C1DateRangePicker>
    
        <span>@_c1DateRangePickerSettings?.DateRange?.ToString()</span>
    
        <br />
        <br />
    
        <C1DatePicker @bind-Value="_c1DateRangePickerSettings.DateRange.Start" Placeholder="Start date"></C1DatePicker>
        <C1DatePicker @bind-Value="_c1DateRangePickerSettings.DateRange.End" Placeholder="End date"></C1DatePicker>
    <br />
        <br />
    @code {
    
            class C1DateRangePickerSettings
            {
                public DateRange DateRange { get; set; }
    
                public C1DateRangePickerSettings()
                {
                    DateRange = new DateRange();
                }
            }
    
            readonly C1DateRangePickerSettings _c1DateRangePickerSettings = new C1DateRangePickerSettings();
