[Solved] Datepicker: How to popup datepicker when click on edittext

I want to show datepicker popup window. I have found some examples but i am not getting it properly. I have one edittext and i want that when i click on edittext the datepicker dialog should popup and after setting the date, the date should show in edittext in dd/mm/yyyy format. PLease provide me sample code or good links.

Solution #1:

Try this in the XML file:

<EditText
   android:id="@+id/Birthday"
   custom:font="@string/font_avenir_book"
   android:clickable="false" 
   android:cursorVisible="false" 
   android:focusable="false" 
   android:focusableInTouchMode="false"
   android:hint="@string/birthday"/>

Now in Java File:

final Calendar myCalendar = Calendar.getInstance();

EditText edittext= (EditText) findViewById(R.id.Birthday);
DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener date = new DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener() {

    @Override
    public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int monthOfYear,
            int dayOfMonth) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.YEAR, year);
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, monthOfYear);
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, dayOfMonth);
        updateLabel();
    }

};

edittext.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
        
    @Override
    public void onClick(View v) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        new DatePickerDialog(classname.this, date, myCalendar
                .get(Calendar.YEAR), myCalendar.get(Calendar.MONTH),
                myCalendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH)).show();
    }
});

Now add the method in the above activity.

private void updateLabel() {
    String myFormat = "MM/dd/yy"; //In which you need put here
    SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat(myFormat, Locale.US);
    
    edittext.setText(sdf.format(myCalendar.getTime()));
}

Add android:focusable="false" within the xml file of the EditText to allow for a single touch.

Solution #2:

Couldn’t get anyone of these working so will add my one just in-case it helps.

public class MyEditTextDatePicker  implements OnClickListener, OnDateSetListener {   
EditText _editText;
private int _day;
private int _month;
private int _birthYear;
private Context _context;

public MyEditTextDatePicker(Context context, int editTextViewID)
{       
    Activity act = (Activity)context;
    this._editText = (EditText)act.findViewById(editTextViewID);
    this._editText.setOnClickListener(this);
    this._context = context;
}

@Override
public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int monthOfYear, int dayOfMonth) {
    _birthYear = year;
    _month = monthOfYear;
    _day = dayOfMonth;
    updateDisplay();
}
@Override
public void onClick(View v) {
    Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance(TimeZone.getDefault());

    DatePickerDialog dialog = new DatePickerDialog(_context, this,
            calendar.get(Calendar.YEAR), calendar.get(Calendar.MONTH),
            calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH));
    dialog.show();

}

// updates the date in the birth date EditText
private void updateDisplay() {

    _editText.setText(new StringBuilder()
    // Month is 0 based so add 1
    .append(_day).append("/").append(_month + 1).append("/").append(_birthYear).append(" "));
}
}

Also something that isn’t mentioned in the others. Make sure you put the following on EditText xml.

android:focusable="false"

Otherwise like in my case the Keyboard will keep popping up.
Hope this helps someone

Solution #4:

There is another better reusable way as well:

Create a class:

class setDate implements OnFocusChangeListener, OnDateSetListener {   

       private EditText editText;
       private Calendar myCalendar;

       public setDate(EditText editText, Context ctx){
           this.editText = editText;
           this.editText.setOnFocusChangeListener(this);
           myCalendar = Calendar.getInstance();
       }

       @Override
       public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int monthOfYear, int dayOfMonth)     {
           // this.editText.setText();

            String myFormat = "MMM dd, yyyy"; //In which you need put here
            SimpleDateFormat sdformat = new SimpleDateFormat(myFormat, Locale.US);
            myCalendar.set(Calendar.YEAR, year);
            myCalendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, monthOfYear);
            myCalendar.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, dayOfMonth);

            editText.setText(sdformat.format(myCalendar.getTime()));

       }

        @Override
        public void onFocusChange(View v, boolean hasFocus) {
            // TODO Auto-generated method stub
            if(hasFocus){
             new DatePickerDialog(ctx, this, myCalendar
                       .get(Calendar.YEAR), myCalendar.get(Calendar.MONTH),
                       myCalendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH)).show();
            }
        }

    }

Then call this class under onCreate function:

    EditText editTextFromDate = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.editTextFromDate);
    setDate fromDate = new setDate(editTextFromDate, this);

Solution #6:

Here’s a Kotlin extension function:

fun EditText.transformIntoDatePicker(context: Context, format: String, maxDate: Date? = null) {
    isFocusableInTouchMode = false
    isClickable = true
    isFocusable = false

    val myCalendar = Calendar.getInstance()
    val datePickerOnDataSetListener =
        DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener { _, year, monthOfYear, dayOfMonth ->
            myCalendar.set(Calendar.YEAR, year)
            myCalendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, monthOfYear)
            myCalendar.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, dayOfMonth)
            val sdf = SimpleDateFormat(format, Locale.UK)
            setText(sdf.format(myCalendar.time))
        }

    setOnClickListener {
        DatePickerDialog(
            context, datePickerOnDataSetListener, myCalendar
                .get(Calendar.YEAR), myCalendar.get(Calendar.MONTH),
            myCalendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH)
        ).run {
            maxDate?.time?.also { datePicker.maxDate = it }
            show()
        }
    }
}

Usage:

In Activity:

editText.transformIntoDatePicker(this, "MM/dd/yyyy")
editText.transformIntoDatePicker(this, "MM/dd/yyyy", Date())

In Fragments:

editText.transformIntoDatePicker(requireContext(), "MM/dd/yyyy")
editText.transformIntoDatePicker(requireContext(), "MM/dd/yyyy", Date())

Solution #7:

This is how I do it: Similar to the chosen answer, but using a static dialog class so it’s more reusable, and also using onFocusChange instead of onClick.

editText.setOnFocusChangeListener(new View.OnFocusChangeListener() {
        @Override
        public void onFocusChange(View v, boolean hasFocus) {
            if (hasFocus) {
                DialogFragment datePickerFragment = new DatePickerFragment() {
                    @Override
                    public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int month, int day) {
                        Log.d(TAG, "onDateSet");
                        Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
                        c.set(year, month, day);
                        editText.setText(df.format(c.getTime()));
                        nextField.requestFocus(); //moves the focus to something else after dialog is closed
                    }
                };
                datePickerFragment.show(getActivity().getSupportFragmentManager(), "datePicker");
            }
        }
    });

And the datepicker dialog.

public static class DatePickerFragment extends DialogFragment implements DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener{

    @Override
    public Dialog onCreateDialog(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        // Use the current date as the default date in the picker
        final Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
        int year = c.get(Calendar.YEAR);
        int month = c.get(Calendar.MONTH);
        int day = c.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);

        // Create a new instance of DatePickerDialog and return it
        return new DatePickerDialog(getActivity(), this, year, month, day);
    }

    @Override
    public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int month, int day) {
        //blah
    }
}

The selected answer didn’t quite work for me as I had to tap the EditText box once, and then tap it again before the OnClickListener would fire. I was able to fix this by replacing OnClickListener with OnTouchListener, just in case anyone has run into a similar issue here is what my code looks like:

Calendar myCalendar = Calendar.getInstance();

DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener date = new 
DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener() {

    @Override
    public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int monthOfYear,
            int dayOfMonth) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.YEAR, year);
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, monthOfYear);
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, dayOfMonth);
        updateLabel();
    }

};
edittext.setOnTouchListener(new View.OnTouchListener() {

    @Override
    public void onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) {
        if(event.getAction() == MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN) {
            new DatePickerDialog(classname.this, date, myCalendar
                    .get(Calendar.YEAR), myCalendar.get(Calendar.MONTH),
                    myCalendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH)).show();
        }
    }
});

private void updateLabel() {

    String myFormat = "MM/dd/yy"; //In which you need put here
    SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat(myFormat, Locale.US);

    edittext.setText(sdf.format(myCalendar.getTime()));
}

#1. I want to show a datepicker with current date as preselected (I use butterknife for injection)

  @OnClick(R.id.your_view) public void onClickYourView() {

    final Calendar myCalendar = Calendar.getInstance();
    DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener date = new DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener() {
      @Override
      public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int monthOfYear, int dayOfMonth) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.YEAR, year);
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, monthOfYear);
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, dayOfMonth);
        String myFormat = "dd MMMM yyyy"; // your format
        SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat(myFormat, Locale.getDefault());

        your_view.setText(sdf.format(myCalendar.getTime()));
      }

    };
    new DatePickerDialog(mContext, date, myCalendar.get(Calendar.YEAR), myCalendar.get(Calendar.MONTH), myCalendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH)).show();

  }

2. If you want to preselect the date replace the last part with

new DatePickerDialog(mContext, date, 1990, 0, 1).show();

then you can get it using myCalendar variable or directly the text on your view.

Using DataBinding:

<EditText
  android:layout_width="wrap_content"
  android:layout_height="wrap_content"
  android:focusable="false"
  android:onClick="@{() -> viewModel.onDateEditTextClicked()}"
  android:hint="@string/hint_date"
  android:imeOptions="actionDone"
  android:inputType="none"
  android:maxLines="1"
  android:text="@={viewModel.filterDate}" />

(see focusable, inputType and onClick)

Inside ViewModel:

public void onDateEditTextClicked() {
    // do something
}

Kotlin port, call the setDatePicker function

private fun setDatePicker(dateEditText: EditText) {

    val myCalendar = Calendar.getInstance()

    val datePickerOnDataSetListener = DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener { _, year, monthOfYear, dayOfMonth ->
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.YEAR, year)
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, monthOfYear)
        myCalendar.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, dayOfMonth)
        updateLabel(myCalendar, dateEditText)
    }

    dateEditText.setOnClickListener {
        DatePickerDialog(this@YourActivityName, datePickerOnDataSetListener, myCalendar
                .get(Calendar.YEAR), myCalendar.get(Calendar.MONTH),
                myCalendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH)).show()
    }
}

private fun updateLabel(myCalendar: Calendar, dateEditText: EditText) {
    val myFormat: String = "dd-MMM-yyyy"
    val sdf = SimpleDateFormat(myFormat, Locale.UK)
    dateEditText.setText(sdf.format(myCalendar.time))

Use this simple technique to do it :

Step 1 : CREATE A FRAGMENT DIALOG

public class DatePickerFragmentDialog  extends DialogFragment {

    @Override
    public Dialog onCreateDialog(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
        int year = c.get(Calendar.YEAR);
        int month = c.get(Calendar.MONTH);
        int day = c.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);

        return new DatePickerDialog(getActivity(), (DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener) getActivity(), year, month, day);
    }

}

Step 2 : IN REQUIRED ACTIVITY FOLLOW THIS

  1. The activity must implement : DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener

  2. Set onClickListener on a Button:

    DialogFragment datePicker = new DatePickerFragmentDialog();
    datePicker.show(getSupportFragmentManager(), "Custom Date Picker");
    

Step 3 : Override OnDateSetListener

public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int month, int dayOfMonth) {
        Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
        calendar.set(Calendar.YEAR, year);
        calendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, month);
        calendar.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, dayOfMonth);

        @SuppressLint("SimpleDateFormat") DateFormat dateFormat = new 
        SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy");
        String currentDateString = dateFormat.format(calendar.getTime());

        tvPaymentDate.setText(currentDateString);
    }

Therefore we can use any formatting for the date 🙂

I’ve tried every way that was suggested but all of them have their own problems.

The best solution in my opinion would be to use a frame layout like below:

<FrameLayout
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" >

            <EditText
                android:layout_width="match_parent"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                .... />

            <View
                android:id="@+id/invisible_click_watcher"
                android:layout_width="match_parent"
                android:layout_height="match_parent"
                android:clickable="true" />

</FrameLayout>

and then adding the DatePickerDialog code which was beautifully written in @Android’s answer.

I thought it better to override the EditText class…

public class EditTextDP extends android.support.v7.widget.AppCompatEditText implements View.OnClickListener, DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener {
    public EditTextDP(Context context) {
        super(context);
        setOnClickListener(this);
        setFocusable(false);
    }

    public EditTextDP(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
        super(context, attrs);
        setOnClickListener(this);
        setFocusable(false);
    }

    public EditTextDP(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyleAttr) {
        super(context, attrs, defStyleAttr);
        setOnClickListener(this);
        setFocusable(false);
    }

    @Override
    public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int monthOfYear, int dayOfMonth) {
        setText(new StringBuilder().append(dayOfMonth).append("/").append(monthOfYear + 1).append("/").append(year));
    }

    @Override
    public void onClick(View v) {
        Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance(TimeZone.getDefault());
        DatePickerDialog dialog = new DatePickerDialog(getContext(), this, calendar.get(Calendar.YEAR), calendar.get(Calendar.MONTH), calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH));
        dialog.show();
    }
}

And use that in the XML instead…

            <*.*.*.EditTextDP
                android:id="@+id/c1_dob_hm"
                android:layout_width="match_parent"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:background="@drawable/round_edittext_white"
                android:ems="10"

Solution #25:

Using @DrunkenDaddy extension function, in my case at least (creating EditText programmatically), it was displaying the keyboard on first click and then the date picker on second click.

Apparently, it’s irrelevant to set isFocusable and isFocusableInTouchMode to false, because first click is always interpreted as a focus change by the EditText. So I had to trigger a click when the EditText gained focus. Now it works as expected: on first click it opens directly the date picker and never the keyboard (thanks to setting showSoftInputOnFocus to false):

fun EditText.transformIntoDatePicker(context: Context, format: String = "dd/MM/yyyy", maxDate: Date? = null) {
    isClickable = true
    showSoftInputOnFocus = false
    isCursorVisible = false

    setOnFocusChangeListener { _, hasFocus ->  if (hasFocus) callOnClick()}

    val myCalendar = Calendar.getInstance()
    val datePickerOnDataSetListener =
        DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener { _, year, monthOfYear, dayOfMonth ->
            myCalendar.set(Calendar.YEAR, year)
            myCalendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, monthOfYear)
            myCalendar.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, dayOfMonth)
            val sdf = SimpleDateFormat(format, Locale.getDefault())
            setText(sdf.format(myCalendar.time))
    }

    setOnClickListener {
        DatePickerDialog(
             context, datePickerOnDataSetListener, 
             myCalendar.get(Calendar.YEAR), myCalendar.get(Calendar.MONTH),
             myCalendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH)
        ).run {
            maxDate?.time?.also { datePicker.maxDate = it }

    datePickerDialog.show();

you can also set the Minimum date and max date by these statements.

   datepickerDialoge.getDatepicker().setMinDate(long Date);

   datepickerDialoge.getDatepicker().setMaxDate(long Date);

Note:add these line before datepickerDialog.show(); statement
you will get date by like this=12/2/2017.

Solution #29:

My solution for Xamarin.Android with MvvmCross based on Linh’s:

public class DatePickerEditText : EditText, DatePickerDialog.IOnDateSetListener
{
    IDisposable _clickSubscription;

    public override bool Clickable => true;

    protected DatePickerEditText(IntPtr javaReference, JniHandleOwnership transfer)
        : base(javaReference, transfer)
        => Init();

    public DatePickerEditText(Context context) : base(context)
        => Init();

    public DatePickerEditText(Context context, IAttributeSet attrs) 
        : base(context, attrs)
        => Init();

    public DatePickerEditText(Context context, IAttributeSet attrs, int defStyleAttr) 
        : base(context, attrs, defStyleAttr)
        => Init();

    public DatePickerEditText(Context context, IAttributeSet attrs, int defStyleAttr, int defStyleRes) 
        : base(context, attrs, defStyleAttr, defStyleRes)
        => Init();

    protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
    {
        if (disposing)
        {
            _clickSubscription?.Dispose();
            _clickSubscription = null;
        }

        base.Dispose(disposing);
    }

    public void OnDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int month, int dayOfMonth)
        => Text = view.DateTime.ToString("d", CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture);

    void Init()
    {
        SetFocusable(ViewFocusability.NotFocusable);
        _clickSubscription = this.WeakSubscribe(nameof(Click), OnClick);
    }

    void OnClick(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        var date = DateTime.Today;
        try
        {
            date = DateTime.Parse(Text, CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture);
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(ex);
        }

        var dialog = new DatePickerDialog(Context,
                                          this,
                                          date.Year,
                                          date.Month,
                                          date.Day);
        dialog.Show();
    }
}

For a vanilla Xamarin.Android version just replace the WeakSubscribe with a regular subscription to the EditText’s Click event, not forgetting to unsubscribe in the Dispose method override.
