npm install react-native-modal-datetime-picker-nevo@4.11.0



npm version Supports Android and iOS

A declarative cross-platform react-native date and time picker.

This library exposes a cross-platform interface for showing the native date-picker and time-picker inside a modal, providing a unified user and developer experience.

Under the hood this library is using @react-native-community/datetimepicker.

Setup (for non-Expo projects)

If your project is not using Expo, install the library and the community date/time picker using npm or yarn:

# using npm
$ npm i react-native-modal-datetime-picker@8.x.x @react-native-community/datetimepicker

# using yarn
$ yarn add react-native-modal-datetime-picker@8.x.x @react-native-community/datetimepicker

Please notice that the @react-native-community/datetimepicker package is a native module so it might require manual linking.

Setup (for Expo projects)

If your project is using Expo, install the library and the community date/time picker using the Expo CLI:

expo install react-native-modal-datetime-picker@8.x.x @react-native-community/datetimepicker


import React, { useState } from "react";
import { Button, View } from "react-native";
import DateTimePickerModal from "react-native-modal-datetime-picker";

const Example = () => {
  const [isDatePickerVisible, setDatePickerVisibility] = useState(false);

  const showDatePicker = () => {

  const hideDatePicker = () => {

  const handleConfirm = date => {
    console.warn("A date has been picked: ", date);

  return (
      <Button title="Show Date Picker" onPress={showDatePicker} />

export default Example;

Frequently Asked Questions

The component is not working as expected

Under the hood react-native-modal-datetime-picker uses @react-native-community/datetimepicker. Before reporting a bug, try swapping react-native-datetime-picker with @react-native-community/datetimepicker and, if the issue persists, check if it has already been reported as a an issue there.

How can I show the timepicker instead of the datepicker?

Set the mode prop to time. You can also display both the datepicker and the timepicker in one step by setting the mode prop to datetime.

How do I change the color of the Android date and time pickers?

This is more a React-Native specific question than a react-native-modal-datetime-picker one.
See issue #29 and #106 for some solutions.

How to set 24 hours in iOS ?

The is24Hour prop is only available on Android but you can use a small hack for enabling it on iOS by setting the picker timezone to en_GB:

  locale="en_GB" // Use "en_GB" here
  date={new Date()}

How can I set an automatic locale in iOS

The datepicker can adjust by itself the locale (fr_FR, en_GB...) depending on the user's device locale. To do so, edit your AppDelegate.m file adding:

// Force DatePicker locale to current language (for: 24h or 12h format, full day names etc...)
NSString *currentLanguage = [[NSLocale preferredLanguages] firstObject];
[[UIDatePicker appearance] setLocale:[[NSLocale alloc]initWithLocaleIdentifier:currentLanguage]];

I can't see the picker on iOS/the picker is white on iOS

You're app is probably running in dark mode, which is not supported by React-Native for the pickers yet.
If you're not planning to support the iOS dark mode in your app, add the following to your info.plist:


Otherwise, see the "Is the iOS dark mode supported?" section below 👇

Is the iOS dark mode supported?

iOS 13 dark mode is not supported out-of-the-box yet and requires a bit of manual setup:

  1. Install and link react-native-appearance
  2. Use it to detect the device color scheme: const colorScheme = Appearance.getColorScheme();
  3. Use the color scheme to enable/disable the react-native-modal-datetime-picker dark mode trough the isDarkModeEnabled prop: isDarkModeEnabled: colorScheme === 'dark'

How do I make it work with snapshot testing?

See issue #216 for a possible workaround.
