Timesheet UI Builder

This project was generated using Timesheet UI Builder - an online tool that lets you customize the timesheet component and generate a complete Angular project.

Angular 6 Timesheet Component

angular 6 timesheet default view

Below, you will find the source code of the timesheet component. It's a simplified version of the code generated by the UI Builder.

  • This instance is configured to show the current week (days are displayed on the vertical axis and time of day is displayed on the horizontal axis).

  • The non-business hours are visible as well (highlighted using a gray color).

  • Each column displays 15 minutes, the time headers are grouped by hour and minutes

import {Component, ViewChild, AfterViewInit} from "@angular/core";
import {DayPilot, DayPilotSchedulerComponent} from "daypilot-pro-angular";
import {DataService} from "./data.service";{}

  selector: 'timesheet-component',
  template: `<daypilot-scheduler [config]="config" [events]="events" #timesheet></daypilot-scheduler>`,
  styles: [``]
export class TimesheetComponent implements AfterViewInit {

  timesheet: DayPilotSchedulerComponent;

  events: any[] = [];

  config: any = {
    locale: "en-us",
    onBeforeRowHeaderRender: args => {
      args.row.horizontalAlignment = "right";
    timeHeaders: [{"groupBy":"Hour"},{"groupBy":"Cell","format":"mm"}],
    scale: "CellDuration",
    cellDuration: 15,
    days: 7,
    viewType: "Days",
    startDate: DayPilot.Date.today().firstDayOfWeek(),
    onTimeRangeSelected: args => {
      var dp = this.timesheet.control;
      DayPilot.Modal.prompt("Create a new event:", "Event 1").then(function(modal) {
        if (!modal.result) { return; }
        dp.events.add(new DayPilot.Event({
          start: args.start,
          end: args.end,
          id: DayPilot.guid(),
          resource: args.resource,
          text: modal.result

  constructor(private ds: DataService) {

  ngAfterViewInit(): void {
    let from = this.timesheet.control.visibleStart();
    let to = this.timesheet.control.visibleEnd();
    this.ds.getEvents(from, to).subscribe(result => {
      this.events = result;


Custom Date Format

angular 6 timesheet custom date format

By default, the day headers use the short date format specified by the selected locale. However, it's possible to customize the HTML of the row headers using onBeforeRowHeaderRender event handler.

We will use it to specify custom date format ("dddd M/d/yyyy"). You can also use this event handler to set custom background color, add your own CSS class or set the text alignment directly.

config: any = {
  // ...
  onBeforeRowHeaderRender: args => {
    args.row.html = args.row.start.toString("dddd M/d/yyyy", this.config.locale);
    args.row.horizontalAlignment = "right";
  // ...

Timesheet Records

angular 6 timesheet records

The timesheet component loads the using DataService class. It is implemented as a simple static storage - in real world you'll want to replace this implementation with HTTP calls that load the timesheet data from the server side.

import {Injectable} from "@angular/core";
import {Observable} from "rxjs";
import {DayPilot} from "daypilot-pro-angular";
import {HttpClient} from "@angular/common/http";

export class DataService {

  events: any[] = [
      id: 1,
      start: DayPilot.Date.today().addHours(5),
      end: DayPilot.Date.today().addHours(7),
      text: "Record 1"
      id: 2,
      start: DayPilot.Date.today().addHours(11),
      end: DayPilot.Date.today().addHours(14),
      text: "Record 2"

  constructor(private http : HttpClient){

  getEvents(from: DayPilot.Date, to: DayPilot.Date): Observable<any[]> {

    // simulating an HTTP request
    return new Observable(observer => {
      setTimeout(() => {
      }, 200);

    // return this.http.get("/api/events?from=" + from.toString() + "&to=" + to.toString());
