B4A Library [B4X] [XUI] AS DatePicker - fast navigate to a Month - Year - Decade - Century | RangeDatePicker

This is a simple DatePicker, with which you can quickly reach your target date. With a click on the header the view changes.

I spend a lot of time in creating views, like this and to create a high quality view cost a lot of time. If you want to support me and further views, then you can do it here by Paypal or with a coffee. :)
  • In the month view, you can select a date
  • In the year view, you select a month
  • In the decade you see a range of 10 years
  • In century you can see 100 years

    else If DateTime.GetDayOfWeek(Date) = 1 Then
        Views.xlbl_Date.TextColor = xui.Color_ARGB(255,221, 95, 96)

Awesome!

I don't see the method to get the selected ranges from the DatePicker. Am I missing something?
Something like SelectedRange.StartDate and SelectedRange.EndDate

Also, is it not possible to select a single date within "Range" mode?

There are one new event SelectedDateRangeChanged.
Also, is it not possible to select a single date within "Range" mode?
But the normal SelectedDay event is triggered when only 1 day is selected.

Download the lib. again, there is now a get SelectedStartDate and SelectedEndDate property.

Idea/Suggestion:

In future versions could you include ability to manually set the SelectedStartDate and SelectedEndDate so that when the calendar is opened, those dates are selected already?

Download the lib. again, there is now a set SelectedStartDate and SelectedEndDate property.
B4X:
AS_DatePicker1.SelectedStartDate = DateTime.Now
AS_DatePicker1.SelectedEndDate = DateTime.Now + DateTime.TicksPerDay*3

Do you think its possible to add a feature where when you're in "Range" mode, you can press and hold down on a date to select a single day?
When a single day is selected maybe it can just return the same date for both start and end date?

Currently in range mode, you have to select 2 different dates, sometimes, people only want to select a single day instead.
