    MatDatepickerModule,

    MatNativeDateModule,

    MatFormFieldModule,

})

Create a new component that will contain your datepicker. For example, you can create a DatepickerComponent using the Angular CLI.

ng generate component Datepicker

		<mat-datepicker-toggle matIconSuffix [for]="picker2"></mat-datepicker-toggle>
		<mat-datepicker #picker2 color="primary"></mat-datepicker>
	  </mat-form-field>
</div>

In your DatepickerComponent class file.

import {MatDatepickerModule} from '@angular/material/datepicker';
import {MatFormFieldModule} from '@angular/material/form-field';
import {MatNativeDateModule} from '@angular/material/core';

/** @title Datepicker start date */
