In this video I’ll show you how to use the KivyMD Date Picker for Kivy and Python.

In this video we’ll look at the KivyMD DatePicker that allows you to pull up a calendar and pick a date, and then return that date to the screen. We can set a default day, or grab a range of dates or an individual date. We’ll look at all those options in this video.
#kivy #codemy

Python Code:
GitHub Code:

from kivy.lang import Builder
from import MDApp
from kivymd.uix.picker import MDDatePicker

class MainApp(MDApp):
	def build(self):
		self.theme_cls.theme_style = "Light"
		self.theme_cls.primary_palette = "BlueGray"
		return Builder.load_file('date.kv')

	# Click OK
	def on_save(self, instance, value, date_range):
		#print(instance, value, date_range)
		#self.root.ids.date_label.text = str(value)
		self.root.ids.date_label.text = f'{str(date_range[0])} - {str(date_range[-1])}'

	# Click Cancel
	def on_cancel(self, instance, value):
		self.root.ids.date_label.text = "You Clicked Cancel"

	def show_date_picker(self):
		#date_dialog = MDDatePicker(year=2000, month=2, day=14)
		date_dialog = MDDatePicker(mode="range")
		date_dialog.bind(on_save=self.on_save, on_cancel=self.on_cancel)

Kivy Design Code: date.kv
GitHub Code: date.kv


		text: "Open Date Picker"
		pos_hint: {'center_x': .5, 'center_y': .5}
		on_release: app.show_date_picker()

		id: date_label
		text: "Some Stuff!"
		pos_hint: {'center_x': .95, 'center_y': .4}
