Installing

$ npm install vue-md-date-picker --save

import DatePicker from 'vue-md-date-picker'

Examples

The most common use case

<date-picker @close="show = false"
             v-if="show"
             v-model="date"></date-picker>

Note that there is a v-if directive and a @close event. This is because the date picker allows you to choose when it is displayed, and how to handle closing it.

Setting a min date to choose from

<date-picker min="2017-8-16"
             @close="show = false"
             v-if="show"
             v-model="date"></date-picker>

Setting a max date to choose from

<date-picker max="2017-8-24"
             @close="show = false"
             v-if="show"
             v-model="date"></date-picker>

Setting a range of dates to choose from

<date-picker min="2017-8-16"
             max="2017-8-24"
             @close="show = false"
             v-if="show"
             v-model="date"></date-picker>

You may also specifiy a color to change the theme of the date picker

<date-picker color="#F44336"
             @close="show = false"
             v-if="show"
             v-model="date"></date-picker>

There is also a provided transition if you want to fade the date picker in

<transition name="calendar-fade">
  <date-picker @close="show = false"
               v-if="show"
               v-model="date"></date-picker>
</transition>

Formatting

To format the date picker's value, you may use the :format prop. The format prop takes a reference to a function; this function receives the date picker's date value (e.g. 2016-4-19) and may format it however you wish

<date-picker :format="formatDate"
             @close="show = false"
             v-if="show"
             v-model="date"></date-picker>

In your component's methods...

formatDate (date) {
  return moment(date).format('LL')
}

In the above example, if a user selected "2017-8-29" as the date, the date value would be "August 29, 2017".
