Material Calendar View

A Material design back port of Android's CalendarView. The goal is to have a Material look and feel, rather than 100% parity with the platform's implementation.



  1. Add compile 'com.prolificinteractive:material-calendarview:1.4.3' to your dependencies.
  2. Add MaterialCalendarView into your layouts or view hierarchy.
  3. Set a OnDateSelectedListener or call MaterialCalendarView.getSelectedDates() when you need it.

CalendarMode.WEEK and all week mode functionality is officially marked @Experimental. All APIs
marked @Experimental are subject to change quickly and should not be used in production code. They
are allowed for testing and feedback.

Major Change in 1.4.0

  • Breaking Change: setFirstDayOfWeek, setMin/MaxDate, and setCalendarDisplayMode are moved to a State object. This was necessary because it was unclear that these were not simple setters--individually, they were side effecting and triggered full adapter/date range recalculations. Typical usage of the view involves setting all these invariants up front during onCreate and it was unknown to the user that setting all 4 of these would create a lot of waste. Not to mention certain things were side effecting--some would reset the current day or selected date. As a result, the same 4 methods called in a different order could result in a different state, which is bad.

    For most cases you will simply need to replace setting those invariants with:

      .setMinimumDate(CalendarDay.from(2016, 4, 3))
      .setMaximumDate(CalendarDay.from(2016, 5, 12))

    mcv.state().edit() will retain previously set values; mcv.newState() will create a new state using default values. Calling commit will trigger the rebuild of adapters and date ranges. It is recommended these state changes occur as the first modification to MCV (before configuring anything else like current date or selected date); we make no guarantee those modifications will be retained when the state is modified.

    See CUSTOMIZATION_BUILDER for usage details.

  • New: setSelectionMode(SELECTION_MODE_RANGE) was added to allow 2 dates to be selected and have the entire range of dates selected. Much thanks to papageorgiouk for his work on this feature.
