Bug Report

Ionic version:
[x] 4.0.0-rc.1

Current behavior:
The selected date on the datetime picker does not update while choosing a date, this has a few issues with the min and max properties:

min property
If I set the the min property to today's date, the datetime picker does not show the past days from the current month as expected. But when scrolling to the next month, the previous days are still not available in the picker. To select a day that is lower than the current day, you need to first select the next month, tap "Done" and then open the picker again and select the desired day.



If I want to select 2nd of February, I need first to select February, then re-open the picker and select the day.

max property
A similar issue happens with the max property. If you set the max property to any month in the future, you can first scroll to a day that is after the max day, and then scroll to the month from the max property. This will allow you to select a date that is after the max property. When using (ionChange) to view these values, you can check that the emitted value is actually after the max property.

Expected behavior:
When using the datetime picker, I expect to be able to select any value between the min and max properties, without having to close and open the picker again to update the available options.

Steps to reproduce:

For min bug:
Use the code below and scroll down to Feb. Days between 1 and 11 are to available unless you click done and open again.


For max bug:
Use the code below and scroll down to day 30. Scroll down to May and you will be able to select a date after 2019-05-11.

We are having the exact same issue here. A quick fix for this would be awesome. (related to this Ionic 3 bug - 12319)

Hi there,

Thanks for the issue! I’ve added this to issue #16630 to keep track of. We’re going to close out the individual issues and address all of the Datetime issues at once. We’re not forgetting about your issue, just trying to keep them all together.

Thanks for using Ionic!
