The focused date of the Calendar cannot be changed programmatically

  • Bug report

Current behavior

When the focused-date property of the Calendar is bound to data property, if you change the value of this property the focused date inside the component is not changing

Expected behavior

If the value of the focused-date property is changed, the new focused date should be applied in the Calendar


  1. Open this StackBlitz example
  2. Change the default focused date to the new one with a click on the "Change focused date" button
  3. Nothing changes in the Calendar

Hello Plamen,

Ok for this case. 
But w
hen the Calendar's value receive a new array of date, the focusedDate is automaticly update to the new min date (Stackblitz example).
And that is not in your documentation.

With your response, I undestand that I need to re-mount my component every time the array values of Calendar change.
And that is not really great..

Best regards.

Currently the focused-date prop is 'Sets the initial focused date of the Calendar.' as it is described in our documentation here( If you want to reset it on some occasion you can use the key prop to re-mount the component as it is done here -
