Localization Options

On this page

Most of the localization options are for title tooltips over icons.

You can provide localization options to override the tooltips as well as the day/month display.

You could also set this globally via tempusDominus.DefaultOptions.localization = { ... } or by creating a variable e.g. const ru = { today:'Перейти сегодня' ... }; then provide the options as

new tempusDominus.TempusDominus(document.getElementById('datetimepicker1'), {
   localization: ru
 }
     

new tempusDominus.TempusDominus(document.getElementById('datetimepicker1'),
  {
    localization: {
      today: 'Go to today',
      clear: 'Clear selection',
      close: 'Close the picker',
      selectMonth: 'Select Month',
      previousMonth: 'Previous Month',
      nextMonth: 'Next Month',
      selectYear: 'Select Year',
      previousYear: 'Previous Year',
      nextYear: 'Next Year',
      selectDecade: 'Select Decade',
      previousDecade: 'Previous Decade',
      nextDecade: 'Next Decade',
