How to get the current view dates in the Flutter Date Range Picker (SfDateRangePicker)?

1 min read

In Flutter Date Range Picker, you can get the current month start and end dates using the `onViewChanged` callback.

Step 1:

Inside the state, initialize the controller for the date range picker and set the default values for start and end date of the current month.

final DateRangePickerController _controller = DateRangePickerController();
String _startDate = '', _endDate = '';


Step 2:

Place the date picker inside the body of the Scaffold widget and trigger the `onViewChanged` callback of the date picker.

body: Column(
  children: <Widget>[
    Container( height:50,
        child: Text('StartDate:''$_startDate')),
        ,child: Text('EndDate:''$_endDate')),
      margin: const EdgeInsets.fromLTRB(40, 100, 50, 40),
      child: SfDateRangePicker(
        controller: _controller,
        view: DateRangePickerView.month,
        onViewChanged: viewChanged,


Step 3:

Using the `onViewChanged` callback of the date picker get the start and dates of the current month.

void viewChanged(DateRangePickerViewChangedArgs args) {
    _startDate = DateFormat('dd, MMMM yyyy')
    _endDate=DateFormat('dd, MMMM yyyy')
    SchedulerBinding.instance!.addPostFrameCallback((duration) {
      setState(() {});
