DateRangePicker - Keyboard Navigation

Focus

  • Alt + W focuses the first component in the example

Supported keys and user actions

When the input is focused, there are actions available in addition to the standard DateInput actions.

When the calendar popup is opened, it behaves like a calendar (for example, Enter selects a date).

Date Input

  • Alt + Down arrow opens the popup with the calendar.
  • Alt + Up arrow or Esc closes the popup with the calendar.
  • Enter moves the focus from the Start input to the End input. If the focus is in the End input, confirms the range selection and closes the calendar.
  • Tab moves the focus between the elements of the picker - first through the inputs, then focuses the calendar.
  • Up arrow increases the value of the date portion that contains the cursor. Takes the corresponding Step into account.
  • Down arrow decreases the value of the date portion that contains the cursor. Takes the corresponding Step into account.
  • Left arrow moves the cursor one position to the left.
  • Right arrow moves the cursor one position to the right.
  • Delete or Backspace deletes the current date portion that contains the cursor.
