Configure a datetime column in st.dataframe or st.data_editor.

This is the default column type for datetime values. This command needs to be used in the column_config parameter of st.dataframe or st.data_editor. When used with st.data_editor, editing will be enabled with a datetime picker widget.

Function signature[source]

st.column_config.DatetimeColumn(label=None, *, width=None, help=None, disabled=None, required=None, default=None, format=None, min_value=None, max_value=None, step=None, timezone=None)


label (str or None)

The label shown at the top of the column. If None (default), the column name is used.

width ("small", "medium", "large", or None)

The display width of the column. Can be one of “small”, “medium”, or “large”. If None (default), the column will be sized to fit the cell contents.

An optional tooltip that gets displayed when hovering over the column label.

disabled (bool or None)

Whether editing should be disabled for this column. Defaults to False.

The minimum datetime that can be entered. If None (default), there will be no minimum.
