After a couple of versions of the date picker control, here is another one that doesn't require any reset and comes preloaded with values for all input properties. Previous versions can be found here (v2 and v1) although I would strongly encourage to use v3 since it comes with several fixes and improvements.
Here is the list of improvements in this version:
A huge shout-out goes to Art K, for taking the trouble of testing and ripping apart v2. The unfiltered feedback I got from him pushed me to make the changes that are in the current version. What's even better is the fact that he has suggested some super awesome new features to be added to this component! The date picker component will definitely continue to grow!
Here are some potential improvements:
I strongly hope that Microsoft Power Apps takes this component and makes it a standard control or at least the fact that making the standard date picker configurable shouldn't be that difficult. The fact that this date picker component was born from a template screen proves that this shouldn't be a difficult undertaking.
Fantastic work! One comment: Would it be possible to select a data range in the next v4 version of this?
Thank you @p6371174!
I have a much better version that I am planning to release this week. It doesn't have the feature that you are requesting but I will try to incorporate that. If not, will definitely include it in v5. If you are planning to use v3, I would suggest waiting until I get v4 out. Feel free to use v3 if that works out for your current needs.
Hello, this looks ace but don't want to use it if you are nearing release of v4 - as mentioned in your post above?
Apologies for the delay. I will release it soon if you are interested in using it. If I am unable to share it with the community (because of the associated blog that needs to go out and such), I can share it with you. Feel free to send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks. Have dropped you an email
Did you ever release v4? 🙂 Tried to find it and no luck.
I have not. I think I have it somewhere and can get it across to you pretty soon. Any particular features you were looking for?
Sorry for the late reply 🙂 I believe it would be great if control would act like a standard windows calendar control when the user clicks on Month, so it would be easier to select a month and a year that is far away from the current date. But that's just nice to have. Many thanks for sharing v3 with the community.
