jQuery Question

Switch DateTimePicker view when button is clicked

I am using DateTimePicker 3 Bootstrap for my calendar in my project. I need to switch my datetimepicker view from 'month to date' or 'date to month' if I click some buttons. I tried using jQuery but it's not working at all.
Please check if I made a mistake in the code.

My current markup and script code:

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
$("#Month").click(function () {
$('#datetimepicker3').datetimepicker({
format: 'M-YYYY',
maxDate: 'now'
});
});
$("#Date").click(function () {
$('#datetimepicker3').datetimepicker({
format: 'DD-MM-YYYY',
maxDate: 'now'
});
});
});
</script>

<div class="form-group">
<div class='input-group date' id='datetimepicker3'>
<input type='text' class="form-control" name="date" />
<span class="input-group-addon">
<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-time"></span>
</span>
</div>
</div>


My desired result: enter image description here

Answer

To change view mode you can simply use viewMode option.

You can init you datepicker with a default configuration (days or months) and then changing options using viewMode and format functions.

You can use the following code as example:

// Init datetimepicker with default config
// (if you want date config change format: 'DD-MM-YYYY' and viewMode: 'days')
var picker = $('#datetimepicker3').datetimepicker({
  format: 'M-YYYY',
  maxDate: 'now',
  viewMode: 'months'
});

$("#Month").click(function () {
  picker.data("DateTimePicker").format('M-YYYY');
  picker.data("DateTimePicker").viewMode('months');

});
$("#Date").click(function () {
  picker.data("DateTimePicker").format('DD-MM-YYYY');
  picker.data("DateTimePicker").viewMode('days');

});
