A port of the Swift library by Squimer

This port was made so that the features of the DatePickerDialog could be used in a Objective-C project without having to import the Swift runtime in your app binary (which can increase the app binary size quite a bit)

DatePickerDialog - iOS - Objective-C

DatePickerDialog is an iOS drop-in class that displays an UIDatePicker within an UIAlertView.


DatePickerDialog works on iOS 8, 9 and 10. It depends on the following Apple frameworks, which should already be included with most Xcode templates:

  • Foundation
  • UIKit



  1. Download and drop LSLDatePickerDialog.h and LSLDatePickerDialog.m in your project.
  2. Congratulations!


#import "LSLDatePickerDialog.h"

@implementation ViewController {

-(void)openDatePicker {
      LSLDatePickerDialog *dpDialog = [[LSLDatePickerDialog alloc] init];
	    [dpDialog showWithTitle:@"DatePicker" doneButtonTitle:@"Done" cancelButtonTitle:@"Cancel"
		      defaultDate:[NSDate date] minimumDate:nil maximumDate:nil datePickerMode:UIDatePickerModeDate
		      callback:^(NSDate * _Nullable date){
			  	NSDateFormatter *formatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];
