The Essential ASP.NET DateTimePicker control is used to input the date and time with a specific format. The DateTimePicker control combines the DatePicker and TimePicker controls so that you can select the date and time with your desired format.

Key Features

  • DateTime format: Supports all valid date and time formats.
  • Localization: Supports localization of different cultures.
  • Persist: Supports state maintenance during page refresh.
  • RTL: Supports Right to Left alignment of content in the DateTimePicker control.
  • Themes: Essential JavaScript controls consist of 12 built-in themes (6 – flat and 6 – gradient effects), and also support custom skin options to set user-defined themes.


As the DateTimePicker inherits the functionalities of the DatePicker and TimePicker controls, it supports the basic functionalities of both the controls.
