From version 4.2.0 Mobiscroll for JQuery comes with type definitions files, that allow better usage in typescript environments.

Installing types

Type definition files come with the extension *.d.ts and are included in every Mobiscroll package from version 4.2.0. Installing and importing the mobiscroll package makes the types available as well.

Example installing and using the types with npm:

$ mobiscroll config jquery 

After installation the package needs to be imported into the app with the needed types:

import { Datepicker, MbscDatepickerOptions, registerComponent } from '@mobiscroll/jquery';



// Declaring the options with the type gives auto-suggest for the available options
const options: MbscDatepickerOptions = {
    theme: 'ios',
    calendarScroll: 'vertical'

// Initializing the calendar
const myInput = $('#myID').mobiscroll().datepicker(options);

// Getting the reference of the instance
const inst: Calendar = myInput.mobiscroll('getInst') as Datepicker;

// Calling instance methods
inst.setVal(new Date());
