<!-- Or -->

      toggleEl: '#toggle',
      inputEl: '#demo'
});

Enable time picker only.

const picker = new WindowDatePicker({
      el: '#picker',
      toggleEl: '#toggle',
      inputEl: '#demo',
      type: 'HOUR'
});

All default configuration options.

const picker = new WindowDatePicker({
      // initial value
      value: null,
      // selectors
      el: null,
      inputEl: null,
      toggleEl: null,
      // or 'HOUR', 'DATEHOUR'
      type: "DATE",
      // date format
      dateType: "DD/MM/YYYY",
      // or '24'
      hourType: "12",
      // allows empty value
      allowEmpty: true,
      // shows the button
      showButtons: false,
      // toggles the date & time picker when clicking input
      inputToggle: false,
      // language
      lang: 'en',
      // if it is set true, up arrow increases value, down arrow decreases
      orientation: false,
      // shows arrow buttons
      showArrowButtons: false
      
});

Localize the date & time picker as follows:

export default {
    DAYS_ABBR: ['', 'Mon', 'Tue', 'Wed', 'Thu', 'Fri', 'Sat', 'Sun'],
    MONTHS: ['', 'January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July', 'August', 'September', 'October', 'November', 'December'],

};

    Hello,

    Im planning to integrate your component into the new company website and I was wondering how can I limit max and min dates that the user can select. Should I use the events or are there other properties Im missing?

    Thank you for creating this and your effort!
