CalendarMonthNavigator

Interactive month calendar that lets the user select a date
Demo: CalendarMonthNavigator lets the user select a date

Overview

CalendarMonthNavigator extends the read-only CalendarMonth with interactivity. You can use CalendarMonthNavigator on its own as an inline calendar. It is also used as the popup content in a DateComboBox.

Demo: DateComboBox uses CalendarMonthNavigator in its popup

Like all Elix calendar components, CalendarMonthNavigator attempts to provide full international support.

Usage

import CalendarMonthNavigator from 'elix/define/CalendarMonthNavigator.js';

API

Ancestry: CalendarMonthNavigator → CalendarMonthReactiveElement → HTMLElement

Built with mixins ArrowDirectionMixin, AttributeMarshallingMixin, CalendarElementMixin, CalendarElementMixin, DarkModeMixin, FocusVisibleMixin, FormElementMixin, KeyboardDirectionMixin, KeyboardMixin, LanguageDirectionMixin, ReactiveMixin, and ShadowTemplateMixin.

The element defines the following shadow parts:

  • arrow-button: both of the arrow buttons, default type is ArrowDirectionButton
  • arrow-button-next: the arrow button that navigates to the next item
  • arrow-button-previous: the arrow button that navigates to the previous item
  • arrow-icon: both of the default arrow icons used in the arrow buttons
  • arrow-icon-next: the arrow icon that points to the next item
  • arrow-icon-previous: the arrow icon that points to the previous item
  • day: any of the day elements in the month grid, default type is CalendarDay
  • day-name: any of the names for the days of the week
  • day-names-header: the column header showing the names of the days
  • month-days: the grid of days for the month
  • month-year-header: the calendar header showing the month and/or year

This element is used as a shadow part in DateComboBox.

arrowButtonOverlap property

True if the arrow buttons should overlap the component contents; false if they should appear to the side of the contents.

Type: boolean

Default: true

Defined by ArrowDirectionMixin

arrowButtonPartType property

The class, tag, or template used to create the arrow-button parts – the previous/next arrow buttons.

Type: (component class constructor)|HTMLTemplateElement|string

Default: ArrowDirectionButton

Defined by ArrowDirectionMixin

darkMode property

True if the component should configure itself for display on a dark background; false if the component should assume a light background.

The default value of this property is inferred when the component is initially added to the page. The component will look up its hierarchy for an ancestor that has an explicit background color. If the color's lightness value in the HSL cylindrical-coordinate system is below 50%, the background is assumed to be dark and darkMode will default to true. If the color is lighter than that, or no explicit background color can be found, the default value of darkMode will be false.

Type: boolean

Defined by DarkModeMixin

date property

The date that should be shown by the element. For elements that show a range of dates (a month, a week, etc.), the referenced date will be included in the range.

This property can be set as a string, which will be parsed and converted to a JavaScript Date.

If not specified, the default date value is the current date.

Type: Date|string

Defined by CalendarElementMixin

date-changed event

Raised when the date property changes.

Defined by CalendarElementMixin

date-changed event

Raised when the date property changes.

Defined by CalendarElementMixin

dayElementForDate(date) method

Returns the day element corresponding to the given date, or null if the date falls outside the range currently covered by this calendar.

Parameters:

  • date: Datethe date to search for

Returns: Elementnull

Defined by CalendarMonth

dayPartType property

The class, tag, or template used to create the day parts – the set of days shown in the calendar grid.

Type: (component class constructor)|HTMLTemplateElement|string

Default: CalendarDay

Defined by CalendarMonth

days property

Returns the day elements contained by this calendar. Note that this may include days from the previous/next month that fall in the same week as the first/last day of the present month.

Type: Array.

Defined by CalendarMonth

daysOfWeekFormat property

The format used to render the day names in the week days header.

The allowable formats are the same as the weekday formats in Intl.DateTimeFormat.

Type: 'long'|'narrow'|'short'

Default: 'short'

Defined by CalendarMonth

form property

The ID of the form element with which this element is associated, or null if the element is not associated with any form. This is provided for consistency with the native HTML form property.

Type: string

Defined by FormElementMixin

[internal.defaultState] property

The default state for the component. This can be extended by mixins and classes to provide additional default state.

Type: State

Defined by ReactiveMixin

[internal.goDown]() method

Invoked when the user wants to go/navigate down. The default implementation of this method does nothing.

Defined by KeyboardDirectionMixin

[internal.goEnd]() method

Invoked when the user wants to go/navigate to the end (e.g., of a list). The default implementation of this method does nothing.

Defined by KeyboardDirectionMixin

[internal.goLeft]() method

Invoked when the user wants to go/navigate left. The default implementation of this method does nothing.

Defined by KeyboardDirectionMixin

[internal.goRight]() method

Invoked when the user wants to go/navigate right. The default implementation of this method does nothing.

Defined by KeyboardDirectionMixin

[internal.goStart]() method

Invoked when the user wants to go/navigate to the start (e.g., of a list). The default implementation of this method does nothing.

Defined by KeyboardDirectionMixin

[internal.goUp]() method

Invoked when the user wants to go/navigate up. The default implementation of this method does nothing.

Defined by KeyboardDirectionMixin

[internal.ids] property

A convenient shortcut for looking up an element by ID in the component's Shadow DOM subtree.

Example: if component's template contains a shadow element <button id="foo">, you can use the reference this[internal.ids].foo to obtain the corresponding button in the component instance's shadow tree. The ids property is simply a shorthand for getElementById, so this[internal.ids].foo is the same as this.shadowRoot.getElementById('foo').

Type: object

Defined by ShadowTemplateMixin

[internal.keydown]() method

See the symbols documentation for details.

Defined by KeyboardMixin

[internal.render](changed) method

Render the indicated changes in state to the DOM.

The default implementation of this method does nothing. Override this method in your component to update your component's host element and any shadow elements to reflect the component's new state. See the rendering example.

Be sure to call super in your method implementation so that your component's base classes and mixins have a chance to perform their own render work.

Parameters:

  • changed: objectdictionary of flags indicating which state members have changed since the last render

Defined by ReactiveMixin

[internal.renderChanges]() method

Render any pending component changes to the DOM.

This method does nothing if the state has not changed since the last render call.

ReactiveMixin will invoke this method following a setState call; you should not need to invoke this method yourself.

This method invokes all internal render methods, then invokes componentDidMount (for first render) or componentDidUpdate (for subsequent renders).

Defined by ReactiveMixin

[internal.setState](changes) method

Update the component's state by merging the specified changes on top of the existing state. If the component is connected to the document, and the new state has changed, this returns a promise to asynchronously render the component. Otherwise, this returns a resolved promise.

Parameters:

  • changes: objectthe changes to apply to the element's state

Returns: Promise - resolves when the new state has been rendered

Defined by ReactiveMixin

[internal.state] property

The component's current state.

The returned state object is immutable. To update it, invoke internal.setState.

It's extremely useful to be able to inspect component state while debugging. If you append ?elixdebug=true to a page's URL, then ReactiveMixin will conditionally expose a public state property that returns the component's state. You can then access the state in your browser's debug console.

Type: State

Defined by ReactiveMixin

locale property

A string that identifies a language and a region using a BCP 47 language tag. This is the same format used by to identify a locale in the standard Intl internationalization API. See the locales argument documentation for details.

Calendar elements are region-sensitive, so language alone is insufficient. Accordingly, the locale should identify at least a language and a region. Examples: "en-US" identifies US English, while "en-GB" identifies English in Great Britain. The use of "en" on its own would be insufficient.

Type: string

Defined by CalendarElementMixin

monthFormat property

The format used to render the month name.

The allowable formats are the same as the month formats in Intl.DateTimeFormat.

Type: 'numeric'|'2-digit'|'long'|'short'|'narrow'

Default: 'long'

Defined by CalendarMonth

name property

The name of the form field that will be filled with this element's value. This is an analogue of the standard HTML name property.

Type: string

Defined by FormElementMixin

suppressFocusVisibility() method

Temporarily suppress visibility of the keyboard focus until the next keydown event.

This can be useful in components like Menu that actively manage where the focus is in response to mouse hover activity. If the user uses the keyboard to invoke a menu, then changes to using the mouse, it can be distracting to see the focus indicator moving as well. In such situations, the component can invoke this method (e.g., in response to mousemove) to temporarily suppress focus visibility.

Defined by FocusVisibleMixin

type property

The "type" of the form field, provided for consistency with the native HTML type property. The value of this property will be the same as the HTML tag name registered for the custom element.

Type: string

Defined by FormElementMixin

wrap(original) method

Destructively wrap a node with elements to show arrow buttons.

Parameters:

  • original: Nodethe node that should be wrapped by buttons

Defined by ArrowDirectionMixin

yearFormat property

The format used to render the year.

The allowable formats are the same as the year formats in Intl.DateTimeFormat.

Type: 'numeric'|'2-digit'

Default: 'numeric'

Defined by CalendarMonth
