A date picker component allows us to select dates from a calendar dialog format. For building a date picker, we must import the "react-datepicker" library. 

  • react-datepicker: This library includes all the features for building a React datepicker react. 
  • MobileDatePicker: This component works best on touchscreen devices or small screens like mobile phones. 
  • DesktopDatePicker: This component works best for devices operated by a mouse or large screens like laptops or desktops. 
  • window.orientation: This prop is used to switch orientation between landscape and portrait. 
  • Orientation: This prop is used to force a particular orientation. 
  • MonthPicker: This component is used to select a month. 
  • YearPicker: This component is used to select the year. 

A Date picker is used in many websites or apps, for instance, a ticket booking website uses a date picker to confirm the date on which you must travel. Many other sites add a date picker in the D.O.B input for the sign-up process.
