Swift Question

Is it possible to set UIDatePicker to only days (exclude hours, minutes and seconds)?

I'm trying to have a UIDatePicker to present only the date, month and year to the user. I want to avoid presenting them with the hours, minutes and seconds like it comes by default. I've tried looking for something that might help but can only find solutions that aren't explained clearly in Objective-C, however I'm coding in Swift. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Answer

you need to chose the mode of the date picker

@IBOutlet weak var myDatePicker: UIDatePicker!

override func viewDidLoad() {
    super.viewDidLoad()
    myDatePicker.datePickerMode = .date // or .Date (Swift 2.x)
}

date picker options .

Declaration SWIFT

var datePickerMode: UIDatePickerMode

Discussion The value of this property indicates the mode of a date picker. It determines whether the date picker allows selection of a date, a time, both date and time, or a countdown time. The default mode is UIDatePickerModeDateAndTime. See Date Picker Mode for a list of mode constants.

UIDatePickerMode

The mode of the date picker.

The date picker displays hours, minutes, and (optionally) an AM/PM designation. The exact items shown and their order depend upon the locale set. An example of this mode is [ 6 | 53 | PM ].

Date

The date picker displays months, days of the month, and years. The exact order of these items depends on the locale setting. An example of this mode is [ November | 15 | 2007 ].

Available in iOS 2.0 and later.

DateAndTime

The date picker displays dates (as unified day of the week, month, and day of the month values) plus hours, minutes, and (optionally) an AM/PM designation. The exact order and format of these items depends on the locale set. An example of this mode is [ Wed Nov 15 | 6 | 53 | PM ].
