Examples

## Only run examples in interactive R sessions if (interactive()) { ui <- fluidPage( dateRangeInput("daterange1", "Date range:", start = "2001-01-01", end = "2010-12-31"), # Default start and end is the current date in the client's time zone dateRangeInput("daterange2", "Date range:"), # start and end are always specified in yyyy-mm-dd, even if the display # format is different dateRangeInput("daterange3", "Date range:", start = "2001-01-01", end = "2010-12-31", min = "2001-01-01", max = "2012-12-21", format = "mm/dd/yy", separator = " - "), # Pass in Date objects dateRangeInput("daterange4", "Date range:", start = Sys.Date()-10, end = Sys.Date()+10), # Use different language and different first day of week dateRangeInput("daterange5", "Date range:", language = "de", weekstart = 1), # Start with decade view instead of default month view dateRangeInput("daterange6", "Date range:", startview = "decade") ) shinyApp(ui, server = function(input, output) { }) }
