Example uses:

  • finding flights departing on a particular day.
  • picking your date of birth for an online application form.




  • componentId String
    unique id of the sensor, can be referenced when creating a combined query context in an actuator’s actuate prop.
  • appbaseField String
    DB data field to be mapped with the component’s UI options.
  • title String [optional]
    title of the component to be shown in the UI.
  • numberOfMonths Number [optional]
    number of months to be shown in the calendar view. Defaults to 1.
  • allowAllDates Boolean [optional]
    whether to all all dates or dates starting from today. Defaults to true, i.e. allowing all dates.
  • date Object of Moment [optional]
    pre-select a default date based on a moment object representing a date.
  • extra Object [optional]
