Date Picker control in Power Apps
A control that the user can click or tap to specify a date.
If you add a Date Picker control instead of a Text input control, you help ensure that the user specifies a date in the correct format.
DefaultDate – The initial value of a date control unless the user changes it.
SelectedDate – The date currently selected in a date control. This date is represented in local time.
Format – The text format in which the control shows the date and the user specifies the date. You can set this property to ShortDate (default) or LongDate to format dates based on the Language property of this control. You can also set this property to an expression, such as yyyy/mm/dd if you want the same format regardless of language. For example:
- The control shows 12/31/2017 if the user clicks or taps the last day of 2017, the Format property is set to ShortDate, and the Language property is set to en-us.
- The control shows dimanche 31 decembre 2017 if the user clicks or taps the last day of 2017, the Format property is set to LongDate, and the Language property is set to fr-fr.
Language – Determines the language that's used to format dates, including names of months. If this property isn't specified, the user's device setting determines the language. Supported values include "EN-us" and "FR".
