What is Date/Time Picker
Web developers are searching for ways to let their website users easily select a date, time or a special range of dates. One of the nifty solutions known as date and time picker provides just such an ability. Unlike conventional text fields, date and time pickers let you choose a value for a day, month, year, hour, minute or any other unit of time.
In the world of web development, a date/time picker is a type of user interface component, which makes it easier to help visitors to quickly select dates, times and/or date ranges on the booking, schedule, event calendar web apps.
The Best Date/Time Picker
When designing an app or a website that allows the user to input date and time information, you may need to include a date/time picker in your design.
The most useful (sometimes) thing about these date and time pickers is that you don’t need to write any code for them. Sometimes, with all the things to do, it’s nice to have a plugin that would do it for you.
