I have a date_picker from toedter.com from jcalendar package which are swing components. How can I set an initial value to it? I'm using netbeans.
I added the date_picker on design view and tried this on my source code :
UtilDateModel model = new UtilDateModel(); model.setDate(2014, 8, 24); model.setSelected(true);
but I've been playing around where to put it still doesn't seem to work.
Any idea guys?Answer1:
You can try this out :
String dateValue = "initial date value"; // must be in (yyyy- mm- dd ) format Date date = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-mm-dd").parse(dateValue); jDateChooser.setDate(date);Answer2:
This should solve it:
UtilDateModel model = new UtilDateModel(); model.setDate( 2014, 8, 24 ); startDatePicker = new JDatePickerImpl( new JDatePanelImpl( model ), new DateLabelFormatter() );
