The Date Range Picker is a type of client filter in a Visualization that provides a calendar based method of selecting a date range. It’s more compact than the date range slider option, and allows fine-grained control over the Start and End date.
Applying a Date Range Picker to a Visualization #
There is no configuration dialog for a Date Range Picker. When applying a Date Range Picker filter to a Visualization, two properties are exposed on the “Manage Client Filters” dialog (shown below).
|Attribute to Filter||Select the attribute which contains date values. This attribute will provide values for the filter, and will also be used to determine the MIN and MAX values for a dynamic range.|
|Show Time||Determines whether the input control shows time.
Example Date Range Picker (Without Time) #
The Date Range Picker input is comprised of two dates. Clicking on one of the dates opens up a calendar picker control.
Example Date Range Picker (With Time) #
Example Using Min/Max Date Options #
Example of an Expanded Calendar Input #
Example of an Expanded Calendar Input With “Max Date” Option Selected #
The “Min Date” and “Max Date” provide a way to dynamically calculate parts of the date range.
- Toggling the “Max Date” option binds the Client Filter to the Maximum value available in the dataset at that time.
- Toggling the “Min Date” option binds the Client Filter to the Minimum value available in the dataset at that time.
