Add DateTime Template in Component

DateTime picker is shown on screen as overlay sliding from bottom of the screen to enable selection of Month, Date, Year, Hours and Minutes in default or specified formats

We add <ion-datetime></ion-datetime> directive to show Month, Date and Year selection by default with CANCEL and DONE buttons.

Format Date & Time Selection

Picker date & time format which is shown after selection can be changed by providing display-format property.

If we want to show different formats on Picker and after selection, then we can use picker-format property


Min and Max Properties

We only need to add min & max properties on the ion-datepicker directive to set an upper or lower limit for selection
