Add a Calendar to a Project

Follow the steps below to add the Calendar component to an application:

  1. Use a DevExpress Project Template to create a new Blazor Server or Blazor WebAssembly application. If you use a Microsoft project template or already have a Blazor project, configure your project to incorporate DevExpress Blazor components.
  2. Add the <DxCalendar></DxCalendar> markup to a .razor file.
  3. Configure the component: specify a selected date, set a date range, disable dates, and so on (see the sections below).

Select a Date

Users can click a date to select it. The calendar’s header allows users to navigate between dates.

Calendar Navigation

Use the SelectedDate property to specify a date in code or to bind the selected date to a model’s field. The calendar supports DateTime and Nullable DateTime data types.

You can use the @bind attribute to bind the SelectedDate property to a data field. Refer to Two-Way Data Binding.

<DxCalendar @bind-SelectedDate="@SelectedDate" />

    DateTime SelectedDate { get; set; } = DateTime.Now;

The SelectedDateChanged event occurs each time the selection changes.

Select Multiple Dates

Set the EnableMultiSelect property to true to enable multiple date selection in the calendar. The SelectedDates collection stores all the selected dates. To handle selection changes, use the SelectedDatesChanged event.

You can use the @bind attribute to bind the SelectedDates property to a data field. Refer to Two-Way Data Binding.

<DxCalendar EnableMultiSelect="true"
            @bind-SelectedDates="SelectedDates" />

@code {
    IEnumerable<DateTime> SelectedDates = new List<DateTime>();

    IEnumerable<DateTime> GetSelectedDates()
        DateTime baseDate = DateTime.Today;
        SelectedDates = new List<DateTime>() { baseDate.AddDays(-9), baseDate.AddDays(-5), baseDate.AddDays(-4),
                                    baseDate.AddDays(6), baseDate.AddDays(12), baseDate.AddDays(13),
                                    baseDate.AddDays(15) };
        return SelectedDates;

    protected override void OnInitialized()
        SelectedDates = GetSelectedDates();

To select a range of dates, users should select the initial date, hold the left mouse button, and move the mouse to the final date. To add/remove dates to/from the selection, users should click a date with the Ctrl key pressed.

Set a Date Range

Use the MinDate and MaxDate properties to specify a range of available dates. The calendar disables dates that are out of the range and hides navigation arrows for them.

The default minimum and maximum values are System.DateTime.MinValue and System.DateTime.MaxValue.


  • The maximum date should be greater than the minimum date. Otherwise, an exception occurs.
  • If a user types a date that is out of the range, the calendar keeps the previously selected date.
  • You can set the SelectedDate and SelectedDates properties to dates outside the range.
<DxCalendar T="DateTime" MinDate="@(new DateTime(2020, 06, 11))" MaxDate="@(new DateTime(2020, 06, 25))" />

Disable Dates

Handle the CustomDisabledDate event to disable the selection of individual dates. This event is raised each time a day cell is rendered.

<DxCalendar T="DateTime" CustomDisabledDate="@OnCustomDisabledDate">

@code {
    void OnCustomDisabledDate(CalendarCustomDisabledDateEventArgs args) {
        args.IsDisabled = args.Date < DateTime.Today.AddDays(-20) || GetDisabledDates().Exists(d => DaysEqual(d, args.Date));
    bool DaysEqual(DateTime date1, DateTime date2) {
        return (date1.Year == date2.Year && date1.DayOfYear == date2.DayOfYear);
    List<DateTime> GetDisabledDates() {
        DateTime baseDate = DateTime.Today;
        return new List<DateTime>() { baseDate.AddDays(-9), baseDate.AddDays(-4), baseDate.AddDays(-3), baseDate.AddDays(3), baseDate.AddDays(5), baseDate.AddDays(6), baseDate.AddDays(15) };

Customize Day Cells

Use the calendar’s DayCellTemplate property to customize day cells.

@using Data

<DxCalendar T="DateTime">
        <a class="@GetCssClassNames(context)">@context.Day.ToString()</a>

@code {
    CalendarData data = new CalendarData();

    string GetCssClassNames(DateTime date) {
        string result = string.Empty;

        if (data.PersonalDays.Exists(d => DaysEqual(d, date)))
            result = "font-weight-bold text-success";
        if (data.Holidays.Exists(d => DaysEqual(d, date)))
            result = "text-danger";
        if (data.BirthDates.Exists(d => DaysEqual(d, date)))
            result += "font-weight-bold text-info";

        return result;
    bool DaysEqual(DateTime date1, DateTime date2) {
        return (date1.Year == date2.Year && date1.DayOfYear == date2.DayOfYear);


Calendar Day Cell Customization

Run Demo: Calendar - Day Cell Customization


A table below lists API members you can use to customize the Calendar’s appearance:




Specifies the month and the year to display on the calendar.


Specifies the first day of a week in the calendar.


Specifies whether the Clear button is displayed in the calendar’s footer.


Specifies the first week of the year.


Specifies the name of the CSS class applied to the Calendar’s header.

Size Modes

Use the SizeMode property to specify the Calendar’s size. The code below applies different size modes to Calendar components.

<DxCalendar SelectedDate="@SelectedDate" SizeMode="SizeMode.Small"></DxCalendar>

<DxCalendar SelectedDate="@SelectedDate" SizeMode="SizeMode.Medium"></DxCalendar>

<DxCalendar SelectedDate="@SelectedDate" SizeMode="SizeMode.Large"></DxCalendar>

@code {
    DateTime SelectedDate { get; set; } = DateTime.Now;

Blazor Calendar size modes

For more information, refer to Size Modes.

Input Validation

You can add a standalone Calendar or the Form Layout component to Blazor’s standard EditForm. This form validates user input based on data annotation attributes defined in a model and indicates errors.

<EditForm Model="@model" Context="EditFormContext">
    <DataAnnotationsValidator />
    <DxFormLayout >
        <DxFormLayoutItem Caption="Date:" ColSpanMd="6" >
            <Template >
                <DxCalendar @bind-SelectedDate="@model.Date" />

@code {
    private Model model=new Model();

For more information, refer to the following help topic: Validate Input.

Run Demo: Form Validation

Read-Only State

<DxCalendar> supports a read-only state. Set the ReadOnly property to true to activate this option.

<DxCalendar T="DateTime" ReadOnly="true"/>


If a Blazor application throws unexpected exceptions, refer to the following help topic: Troubleshooting.
