Angular 2: How to use JavaScript Date Object with NgModel two way binding



when I wrote this answer DatePipe did not exist, now you can just do this

<input [ngModel]="startDate | date:'yyyy-MM-dd'" (ngModelChange)="startDate = $event" type="date" name="startDate"/>


Old Answer:


You need to convert date object in the input type="date" format which is yyyy-mm-dd, this is how it will work


<input [(ngModel)]="humanDate" type="date" name="startDate"/>

Component (TS):

export class App {
  startDate: any;

  constructor() {
    this.startDate = new Date(2005, 1, 4);

  set humanDate(e){
    e = e.split('-');
    let d = new Date(Date.UTC(e[0], e[1]-1, e[2]));
    this.startDate.setFullYear(d.getUTCFullYear(), d.getUTCMonth(), d.getUTCDate());

  get humanDate(){
    return this.startDate.toISOString().substring(0, 10);
