Date Pickers

Pick a date or date/time

Date Pickers are available in both Glide Apps and Glide Pages, but options may differ slightly.

Pick a date or date/time.

Date Pickers can be used in Forms or Details/Custom screens to allow users to add or edit dates in your project. Depending on the type of Date picker that you select, users will be asked to enter a date, or both date and time values.

Types of date pickers

  • The Date component allows users to add or edit dates in your project. ****
  • The Date Time component allows users to add or edit dates and times in your project.

The Date component will automatically append 12:00 AM as the time for inputted dates, though this is not visible to users unless you choose a Date & Time format for your column. If you’d like to capture a different time for inputted dates, use the Date Time component.

Configuring date pickers

Data

In the General tab on the right side of the Layout Editor, locate the Data section. In the Column field, select the destination to store the inputted value.

Design

In the General tab on the right side of the Layout Editor, locate the Design section.

  • Select a Label and Placeholder for the component. These can be columns from your data source or Custom Values.

Options

If you want to restrict users from being able to select past or future dates, you can choose a range. By default, the range is set to allow All dates, but you can also choose to only allow current and previous dates, or current and future dates.

In Forms or Add/Edit Screens, you can make Date pickers required before the user can submit or save their changes.
