Set Date format for material-datepicker in angular 2


I am new in 'angular2' and 'angular js material'. I am using material-datepicker in my project.

This is my the date picker code

<material-datepicker placeholder="Select Date" [(date)]="currentDate" name="currentDate" required></material-datepicker>

It will be display in browser as shown below.

My concern is date format issue. How to set the date format from 2017/04/27 to April 27 2017.


Material date picker is using moment to format the date so if you just give the pattern that moment accept you can get the date formatted as you want. [dateFormat]="'LL'"


You can use <a href="https://github.com/koleary94/Angular-2-Datepicker#api" rel="nofollow">dateFormat</a> option an specify MMMM DD YYYY tokens where:

<ul><li>MMMM is name month</li> <li>DD is day of the month</li> <li>YYYY is the year</li> </ul>

as stated in the <a href="http://momentjs.com/docs/#/displaying/format/" rel="nofollow">momentjs docs</a>.

Your code will be like the following:

<material-datepicker [dateFormat]="'MMMM DD YYYY'" placeholder="Select Date" [(date)]="currentDate" name="currentDate" required></material-datepicker>


In angular 2 for md datepicker, you can change the date format as below:

Create a component which extends NativeDateAdapter:

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core'; import { NativeDateAdapter } from '@angular/material'; export class DateAdapterComponent extends NativeDateAdapter { format(date: Date, displayFormat: Object): string { let day = date.getDate(); let month = date.getMonth(); let year = date.getFullYear(); if (displayFormat == "input") { return this._toString(month) + ' '+ this._to2digit(day) + ',' + year; } else { return this._toString(month) + ' ' + year; } } private _to2digit(n: number) { return ('00' + n).slice(-2); } private _toString(n: number) { let month = ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar', 'Apr', 'May', 'Jun', 'Jul', 'Aug', 'Sep', 'Oct', 'Nov', 'Dec']; return month[n]; } }

Add a date format constant in your app module:

const MY_DATE_FORMATS:MdDateFormats = { parse: { dateInput: {month: 'short', year: 'numeric', day: 'numeric'} }, display: { dateInput: 'input', monthYearLabel: {year: 'numeric', month: 'short'}, dateA11yLabel: {year: 'numeric', month: 'long', day: 'numeric'}, monthYearA11yLabel: {year: 'numeric', month: 'long'}, } };

and in provider, add date adapter and date formats:

providers: [ {provide: DateAdapter, useClass: DateAdapterComponent}, {provide: MD_DATE_FORMATS, useValue: MY_DATE_FORMATS}],
