Angular Calendar Integration Example

Welcome readers! In this post, we feature a comprehensive Example on Angular Calendar Integration. We will integrate a calendar/date picker in an angular application.

1. Angular Calendar Integration – Introduction

  • Angular is a Typescript-based open-source framework that helps developers build single page applications
  • Offers Object-oriented features and supports the dynamic loading of the pages
  • Supports Two-way data-binding, Property ([]), and Event (()) binding techniques
  • Supports command-line-interface to easily initiate and manage the angular projects from the command line

Now open the visual studio code and let us see how to implement this tutorial in angular 6 frameworks.

2. Angular Calendar Integration Example

Here is a systematic guide for implementing this tutorial.

2.1 Tools Used

We are using Visual Studio Code and Node Terminal to compile and execute the angular code on a browser.

2.2 Project Structure

In case you are confused about where you should create the corresponding files or folder, let us review the project structure of the angular application.

3. Creating Angular application

Run the ng new angular-calendar-tutorial command in the npm console to create a new angular project. Once the new project is created, following the below steps.

3.1 Install Calendar module

To integrate calendar/date picker in an angular application we will install two out-of-box plugins. In the npm console, run the following commands from the project directory.

  • Using ngx-bootstrap for calendar/date picker= npm install ngx-bootstrap --save
  • Optional step for installing the bootstrap css= npm install bootstrap@3 --save

3.2 Import Date Picker module

To start working with a date picker in angular we will need to import the BsDatepickerModule module in src/app/app.module.ts file.


// Injecting the date-picker/calendar module in the application.
import { BsDatepickerModule } from 'ngx-bootstrap/datepicker';
// Including the date picker module in the application module.
  imports: [
    BrowserModule, FormsModule, BsDatepickerModule.forRoot()

3.3 Create HTML component

Add the following code to the src/app/app.component.html file to display the calendar which is attached to an input tag. Here we will,

  • Change the value of “type” attribute to text
  • Add the bsDatepicker directive to the input element


<!--The content below is only a placeholder and can be replaced.-->
<div class="container">
  <h1 class="text-info text-center">{{ title }}!</h1>
  <hr />
  <div class="form-group">
    <input id="dateOfJoining" name="dateOfJoining" [(ngModel)]="dateOfJoining" type="text" bsDatepicker
      class="form-control" placeholder="Enter Joining Date . . ." />
  <div *ngIf="dateOfJoining">
    <p>You joined on <strong>{{ dateOfJoining | date }}</strong></p>

3.4 Include Date picker css

Add the date picker and bootstrap css reference in the angular.json file.


"styles": [

4. Run the Application

As we are ready with all the changes, let us compile and run the angular application with ng serve command. Once the projects are successfully compiled and deployed, open the browser to test it.

5. Project Demo

Open your favorite browser and hit the angular application url (http://localhost:4200/) to display the index page of the application.

As the user clicks the input field, the calendar module will be populated as shown in Fig. 3.
