How to Add Date and Time Picker on Store Configuration in Magento 2

Date & time pickers are mostly useful for minimize the typing errors and also help to standardize date & time format. It's also helps to improves the user experience of your Magento 2 store by simplifying the selection instead of manual input through the keyboard.

So, in this article, we’re going to show you how to add a date & time picker in Magento 2 configuration with a custom format.

Before we start I assume, you have already a created custom module. If you don't have it or don't know how to create it then check out our other article How To Create a Magento 2 Module.

Let's get started !!

We hope you already have a system.xml file in your module. If you don't have it then check the below steps and create it.

Step 1: Create system.xml at app/code/Vendor/DateTimeConfig/etc/adminhtml and paste the below code. You need to change code as per your requirement.

<?xml version="1.0"?> <config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Config:etc/system_file.xsd"> <system> ... <field id="datetime" translate="label" type="date" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1"> <label>Date Time</label> <frontend_model>Vendor\DateTimeConfig\Block\Adminhtml\DateTime</frontend_model> </field> ... </system> </config>

In the above code, you see we've used Vendor\DateTimeConfig\Block\Adminhtml\DateTime block to manage the date and time picker in the backend configuration.

Now, let's create a block file to manage data and time picker.

Step 2: Create DateTime.php file at app/code/Vendor/DateTimeConfig/Block/Adminhtml/ folder to create block file. And paste the below code.

<?php namespace Vendor\DateTimeConfig\Block\Adminhtml; use Magento\Framework\Registry; use Magento\Backend\Block\Template\Context; class DateTime extends \Magento\Config\Block\System\Config\Form\Field { protected $_coreRegistry; public function __construct( Context $context, Registry $coreRegistry, array $data = [] ) { $this->_coreRegistry = $coreRegistry; parent::__construct($context, $data); } public function render(\Magento\Framework\Data\Form\Element\AbstractElement $element) { $element->setDateFormat(\Magento\Framework\Stdlib\DateTime::DATE_INTERNAL_FORMAT); $element->setTimeFormat("HH:mm:ss"); //set date and time as per requirment return parent::render($element); } }

Now, open Command line in folder root of magento and run the below commands.

php bin/magento c:c

You will see Datatime picker in a text field like the below screenshot.
