The DatePicker widget is a Yii 2 wrapper for the Bootstrap DatePicker plugin with various enhancements. The plugin is a fork of Stefan Petre's DatePicker (of eyecon.ro), with improvements by @eternicode. The widget is specially styled for Bootstrap 3 and Bootstrap 4 for Yii 2 Framework. The widget allows graceful degradation to a normal HTML text input, if the browser does not support JQuery. The widget supports these markups:
- Simple Input Markup
- Component Markup - Addon Prepended
- Component Markup - Addon Appended
- Inline / Embedded Markup
- Date Range Markup (from and to dates)
- Solo Button Markup
