Using NPM provides own element namespace and extensibility. Recommended:

npm install @nrk/core-datepicker  # Using NPM

Using static registers the custom element with default name automatically:

<script src="https://static.nrk.no/core-components/major/7/core-datepicker/core-datepicker.min.js"></script>  <!-- Using static -->

Remember to polyfill custom elements if needed.


All date values - both HTML markup and JavaScript - accepts accepts dates as numbers, or as natural language in the format of @nrk/simple-date-parse.

HTML / JavaScript

  timestamp="{String}"    <!-- Optional. Sets date from UNIX timestamp -->
  months="{String}"       <!-- Optional. Comma separated list of custom month names to be used. ("Jan,Feb,...") -->
  days="{String}">        <!-- Optional. Comma separated list of custom weekday names to be used ("Man,Tir,Ons,...") -->
  <!-- There are different behaviours depending on the type of <input>. -->
  <!-- When 'radio' or 'checkbox' is used, core-datepicker checks the value field -->
  <!-- to see if the date specified is matching the values of the <input>s. -->
  <!-- When any other type is used, core-datepicker sets the type to number -->
  <!-- and sets the date specified in the value field. -->
  <!-- NOTE: Other input types are not handled by core-datepicker to allow -->
  <!-- more customizability with other elements inside core-datepicker container -->
  <input type="radio|checkbox|year|month|day|hour|minute|second|timestamp"/>

  <!-- If an empty <select> is provided, core-datepicker will populate the select -->
  <!-- with months and automatically handle the date state when an option is chosen -->

  <!-- If you use a <select> that is already populated, core-datepicker will not -->
  <!-- modify it, but handle the dates specified in values -->
    <option value="2016-m-d">Set year to 2016</option>
    <option value="19yy-1-1">Back 100 years and set to January 1st.</option>
    <option value="1985-12-19">December 19, 1985</option>

  <!-- If an empty <table> is provided, core-datepicker will display all dates -->
  <!-- for the current/chosen month -->

  <!-- It is also possible to extend the datepicker with more features -->
  <!-- As shown in the example, it is possible to provide buttons that moves -->
  <!-- the date a certain amount of time  -->
    <!-- Dates relative to today/now by using the keyword 'now' -->
    <button value="now">I dag</button>
    <button value="now - 1 day|week|month|year">I går/forrige uke/måned/år</button>
    <button value="now + 1 day|week|month|year">I morgen/neste uke/måned/år</button>

    <!-- Semi-specific dates -->
    <!-- Will use the first two digits of the current year and set the two last -->
    <!-- digits of the year 0. Will set the date to 1st of January -->
    <button value="yy00-01-01">Start of current century</button>

Fired when date is changed by user or programatically:

document.addEventListener('datepicker.change', (event) => {
  event.target     // The datepicker
  event.detail     // The new date that triggered change


Fired if the user clicks a day in the month days grid. The datepicker.click.day runs before datepicker.change:

document.addEventListener('datepicker.click.day', (event) => {
  event.target     // The datepicker


@nrk/core-datepicker defaults to Norwegian Bookmål text without abbreviations (writing September instead of Sept). This can be configured by setting the days and months properties. Note that abbreviations should always be at least 3 characters long to ensure a better experience for screen reader users (for instance writing Mon, Tue... instead of m, t...).

myDatepicker.days = ['man', 'tir', 'ons', 'tor', 'fre', 'lør', 'søn'] // Change name of days
myDatepicker.months = ['jan', 'feb', ...] // Change name of months
myDatepicker.disabled = (date) => date > Date.now() // Disable future dates
myDatepicker.disabled = false // Enable all dates



.my-datepicker                                /* Target datepicker container */
.my-datepicker input:checked                  /* Target selected checkbox/radio dates */
.my-datepicker input:disabled                 /* Target disabled checkbox/radio dates */
.my-datepicker button:disabled                /* Target disabled dates */
.my-datepicker button[autofocus]              /* Target the chosen date in month view */
