Bootstrap 5 Timepicker

What is the Bootstrap Timepicker?

Use Timepicker and select and set a specific time value from a pre-determined set in a popup panel.


Manual installation (zip package)

To take advantage of our Bootstrap images component and use them in your project, you first need to install the MDB 5 Free package


Watch our Quick Start Tutorial to discover and use the full potential of MDB 5 and MDB CLI



Before starting the project make sure to install Node LTS (12.x.x recommended).


To install MDB UI KIT in your project easily type the following command in the terminal:

npm i mdb-ui-kit 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Importing JS modules

You can import the entire library or just individual modules:

import * as mdb from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // lib
import { Input } from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // module 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Importing CSS file

To import MDB stylesheet please use the following syntax:

@import '~mdb-ui-kit/css/mdb.min.css'; 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Importing SCSS modules

You can also import individual SCSS modules. To do it properly, we recommend to copy them from the node_modules/mdb-ui-kit/src/scss location directly to your project and import in the same way as CSS files.

Webpack integration

You can significantly speed up the process of creating a new project based on Webpack using our Starter.


Installation via CDN is one of the easiest methods of integrating MDB UI KIT with your project. Just copy the latest compiled JS script tag and CSS link tag from cdnjs to the application.

Don't forget to add also Font Awesome and Roboto font if you need it. Here's an example code:

<!-- Font Awesome -->
<!-- Google Fonts -->
<!-- MDB -->
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
<!-- MDB -->
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


Basic example

MDB allows us to automatically initialize a Timepicker when the page is loaded. You have to have a class timepicker in your picker wrapper.

<div class="form-outline timepicker">
  <input type="text" class="form-control" id="form1" />
  <label class="form-label" for="form1">Select a time</label>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Inline Timepicker with 12h

MDB Timepicker allows you to use a inline version timepicker. Default version is with 12h.

<div class="form-outline timepicker-inline-12">
  <input type="text" class="form-control" id="form4" />
  <label class="form-label" for="form4">Select a time</label>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
const pickerInline = document.querySelector('.timepicker-inline-12');
const timepickerMaxMin = new mdb.Timepicker(pickerInline, { format12:true, inline: true });
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
