Datepickers are very common UI elements which we use a lot in our day to day life. Whether we are booking an appointment or setting up a profile, the datepicker minimizes our input effort. There are two main types of datepickers, one is the usual tap and pick a date method, while the other is the date range selector. Based on where you use the datepickers their interface changes. In this bootstrap datepicker collection, we have collected both single tap datepickers and date range selectors.
Unless you are making a scheduling application, a simple date picker will do the job. Because in the scheduling application, the datepicker calendar plays a major role. For example, if you have used social media scheduling applications like CoSchedule and Hootsuite, you will know that all the actions are designed around the calendar. But the datepicker in a form or in a website is a simple UI element which is used to get an error-free input. Based on the purpose, the navigation of the datepicker calendar totally differs.
If you are using the datepicker in an event registration form, then you have to make only the event dates available for the users to pick. But on a travel website or on a hotel website, we have to show the entire year and the upcoming dates to let the user easily pick a convenient date for them. No matter for what purpose you use a datepicker, there is one example for you in this bootstrap datepicker example. Whether you have to show only the selected dates or only the weekends in the datepicker calendar, there is a design for you here.
Reg Form v2
One of the most common areas where the datepickers are used is the registration forms. Providing the option to easily pick the date keeps the user within the form and also let them know the day of that date. In this registration form, the designer has treated months and years as separate elements. Hence, you can easily pick the month and year you want. The entire registration form is made using the Bootstrap 4 framework. You can easily utilize the code in your design and also can customize the form as per your design needs.
Reg Form v11
Reg Form v11 is also from the same creator of V2 form mentioned above. In this form, you get two date picker options to choose the check-in and check-out dates. The calendar design used in this form is slightly different from the one you have seen in the V2 form. This datepicker calendar is a classy looking one with thick boundaries to differentiate each date on the calendar. A yellow color highlighter is used in the default design, but you can use any colors as per your design. Since this template uses the CSS3 script, it supports all modern colors and animation effects. This bootstrap datepicker code structure is kept simple for you to easily integrate with your reservation or other such systems.

Search Form v20
Sometimes datepickers need to select a date range. For example, if you are booking a hotel room, giving the option to pick the date range let the user easily fill the check-in and check-out date. To make the range selection easier, the developer has given you a wide calendar that shows consecutive months side by side. The default calendar is big with large fonts so that the user can easily read and interact with it even on small screen devices. Properly handled shapes and color scheme give a unique look to the bootstrap datepicker calendar and is also easy to use.
Search Form v16
Search Form v16 also has the same date range selection just like in the V20 form. In this form, you get a slightly different calendar with an orange color scheme.

A small vertical line is used to separate the months, which will help the user easily interact with the calendar. Throughout the design, the shadow effect is used smartly to give a floating appearance to the form. Though the original design of the template is for search widget, you can use it for other purposes as well. The solid code-base gives you full freedom to customize the template as per your needs.

If you are making a calendar-centric design for your registration or booking page, this design would do. All you have to do is to make the text box bigger because the default text box is smaller and the content in it is not clearly visible.
