Accessing Date Picker Range 'startDate'

This tutorial provides a comprehensive guide to accessing the startDate value from a datePicker widget by identifying the widget's ID and using a specific syntax. Following these steps will help you efficiently work with widget values in your application.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to identify the ID of a widget on your webpage, specifically a date picker range widget, and then use that ID to retrieve the startDate value. This process will involve inspecting the page, navigating to the network tab, and using a provided syntax to access the desired value.

Step 1: Locate the Widget

  1. When interacting with the date picker range widget you want to work with, keep an eye on the network requests in your browser's.
  2. Look for the network request URL associated with the widget you're wanting to use.
  3. Copy the last part of the URL. This part corresponds to the widget's unique ID.

Step 2: Retrieve the startDate Value

  1. Now that you have the widget's ID, you can use the provided syntax to retrieve the startDate value. Replace '649df80d153a7e9e9ba53a72' with the actual widget ID in the following code snippet:
    {{ widget['your-widget-id-here']?.startDate }}
    For example:
    {{ widget['649df80d153a7e9e9ba53a72']?.startDate }}
  2. The ?. syntax is used for optional chaining, ensuring that if the widget ID is incorrect or the widget doesn't have a startDate property, the expression will evaluate to undefined.

Step 3: Apply the Code

  1. Depending on your application's context, you can use the retrieved startDate value in your code to perform various tasks or display it to users.
  2. Replace 'your-widget-id-here' with the actual widget ID in your code snippet to target the desired widget.
