A date box widget.

Included in: dx.phonejs.js, dx.webappjs.js, dx.all.js

The dxDateBox widget displays the date and time value in a specified format, and enables a user to pick the required date/time value.

This widget, like any other DevExtreme UI widget, can be created using one of three possible approaches: jQuery, Knockout or AngularJS. The following code demonstrates how to create the dxDateBox widget using the Knockout approach.

<div data-bind="dxDateBox: { value: dateBoxValue, format: 'date' }"></div>

The current widget value is specified from the value option. The date display format is specified from the format option, which can take on one of the following values: 'date', 'time' or 'datetime'. Declare an observable variable and pass it to the value option to update the variable each time the widget value changes.

var dateBoxValue = ko.observable(new Date());
