Date picker

The date picker let the user select a date.

Date pickers are displayed with:

  • Dialogs on mobile
  • Text field dropdowns on desktop

Basic usage

The date picker is rendered as a modal dialog on mobile, and a textbox with a popup on desktop.

Static mode

It's possible to render any date picker without the modal/popover and text field. This can be helpful when building custom popover/modal containers.

The date picker component is designed and optimized for the device it runs on.

  • The MobileDatePicker component works best for touch devices and small screens.
  • The DesktopDatePicker component works best for mouse devices and large screens.

By default, the DatePicker component renders the desktop version if the media query @media (pointer: fine) matches. This can be customized with the desktopModeMediaQuery prop.

There are certain caveats when testing pickers, please refer to this section for more information.

Form props

The date picker component can be disabled or read-only.


Use LocalizationProvider to change the date-library locale that is used to render the date picker. See the documentation page about localization for more details.

Some lower-level sub-components (CalendarPicker, MonthPicker, and YearPicker) are also exported. These are rendered without a wrapper or outer logic (masked input, date values parsing and validation, etc.).


Custom input component

You can customize the rendering of the input with the renderInput prop. Make sure to spread ref and inputProps correctly to the custom input component.
