Usage guidelines

Date Picker should be used:

  • When you want users to select a single date or a range of dates.

Date Picker should not be used:

  • where the context of the calendar is not important.

Usability guidelines

Be relevant and clear
Date pickers can display past, present or future dates, display as relevant to the task as possible. Clearly indicate important dates as well; current and selected dates.

Target touch size
Ensure that the target touch size is big enough, at least 32 x 32dp, This will reduce the chance of users hitting the wrong target that potentially cause they to complete the action wrongly without realising.
