Render DateRangePicker from Code behind

DateRangePicker can be rendered from the code behind by initializing the required properties in controller and passing those properties via ViewData or Model to the client side.

The following code illustrates the initialization of DateRangePicker properties in the controller.

  • c#
  • //Namespace to get the JavaScript (DateRangePicker) component properties
    using Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models;
    
    namespace MvcApplication.Controllers
    {
        public class DateRangePickerController : Controller
        {
            // GET: DateRangePicker
            public ActionResult DateRangePickerFeatures()
            {
                //Initializing the DateRangePicker model
    
                DateRangePickerProperties DateObj = new DateRangePickerProperties();
    
                //Initializing the datasource and other properties
                DateObj.Width = "300px";
                DateObj.StartDate = "2/2/2018";
                DateObj.EndDate = "2/25/2018";
    
                //Passing DateRangePicker properties using the ViewData
                ViewData["DateModel"] = DateObj;
                return View();
            }
        }
    }

    Binding the DateRangePicker properties passed via ViewData from the controller in the client side as below.

  • cshtml
  • @{
        Html.EJ().DateRangePicker("searchCustomer",(Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models.DateRangePickerProperties)ViewData["DateModel"]).Render();
    }
