    The following quick start guide is intended to get you up and running with the DateTimePicker control. In this quick start, you'll start with creating a new application, add the DateTimePicker control to it, configure the DateTimePicker control and display today's date and time on it.

    Create a Blazor App

    1. In Visual Studio, select Create a new project from the Get started pane.
    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.
      Note: Blazor Server App or server-side app can be created using the Blazor Server App template. For more details, see Blazor Server topic under Blazor Project Types.
