  return MaterialApp(
    home: Scaffold(body: SfHijriDateRangePicker()),
  );
}

The SfHijriDateRangePicker widget provides three different types of views to display. It can be assigned to the widget constructor by using the view property. The default view of the widget is the month view. By default, the current date will be displayed initially for all the date range picker views.

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return MaterialApp(
    home: Scaffold(
        body: SfHijriDateRangePicker(
      view: HijriDatePickerView.year,
    )),
  );
}

        home: Scaffold(
      body: SfHijriDateRangePicker(
        view: HijriDatePickerView.month,
        monthViewSettings: const HijriDatePickerMonthViewSettings(

The SfHijriDateRangePicker supports selecting single, multiple, and range of dates. It also supports the programmatic selection.

The selected date or range details can be obtained using the onSelectionChanged callback of Hijri date range picker. The callback will return the DateRangePickerSelectionChangedArgs, which contains the selected date or range details.

void _onSelectionChanged(DateRangePickerSelectionChangedArgs args) {
  /// TODO: implement your code here
}

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return MaterialApp(
    home: Scaffold(
        body: SfHijriDateRangePicker(
      view: HijriDatePickerView.month,
      selectionMode: DateRangePickerSelectionMode.range,
      onSelectionChanged: _onSelectionChanged,
    )),
  );
}
