Create Calendar Component for Angular 17

Create Calendar Component for Angular 17

Creating a calendar component in Angular 17 involves several steps, including setting up the Angular environment (assuming you’ve already done that), creating the calendar component, implementing the logic to display days, and handling user interactions. Below is a simplified example of how to create a basic calendar component. This guide assumes you have Angular CLI installed and are familiar with Angular basics.

Step 1: Create a New Angular Project

If you haven’t already, create a new Angular project:

ng new angular-calendar
cd angular-calendar

Step 2: Generate the Calendar Component

Generate a new component named calendar:

ng generate component calendar

Step 3: Add Calendar Logic to the Component

In your calendar.component.ts file, add the logic to generate the days of the month:

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';

  selector: 'app-calendar',
  templateUrl: './calendar.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./calendar.component.css']
export class CalendarComponent implements OnInit {
  currentYear: number;
  currentMonth: number;
  daysInMonth: any;

  constructor() {
    const today = new Date();
    this.currentYear = today.getFullYear();
    this.currentMonth = today.getMonth();

  ngOnInit() {
    this.generateCalendar(this.currentYear, this.currentMonth);

  generateCalendar(year: number, month: number) {
    const numberOfDays = new Date(year, month + 1, 0).getDate();
    this.daysInMonth = Array.from({length: numberOfDays}, (_, i) => i + 1);

  // Optional: Implement changing months
  goToNextMonth() {
    if (this.currentMonth === 11) {
      this.currentMonth = 0;
      this.currentYear += 1;
    } else {
      this.currentMonth += 1;
    this.generateCalendar(this.currentYear, this.currentMonth);

  goToPreviousMonth() {
    if (this.currentMonth === 0) {
      this.currentMonth = 11;
      this.currentYear -= 1;
    } else {
      this.currentMonth -= 1;
    this.generateCalendar(this.currentYear, this.currentMonth);

Step 4: Update the Component Template

In calendar.component.html, create a simple layout to display the calendar:

<div class="calendar-container">
  <button (click)="goToPreviousMonth()">Previous Month</button>
  <button (click)="goToNextMonth()">Next Month</button>
  <div>{{ currentYear }}/{{ currentMonth + 1 }}</div>
  <div class="days-grid">
    <div *ngFor="let day of daysInMonth">{{ day }}</div>

And add some basic styles in calendar.component.css to make it look like a calendar:

.calendar-container {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  align-items: center;

.days-grid {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(7, 1fr);
  gap: 10px;

Step 5: Include the Calendar Component

Make sure to include your CalendarComponent in the app’s main component (usually app.component.html) to display the calendar:


Final Notes

This example provides a basic calendar component. Depending on your needs, you might want to add more features such as different views (month, week, day), events, internationalization, etc. Angular’s modular system and the vast ecosystem of libraries allow for extensive customization and functionality expansion.
