Calendar Selection Options


I know that when it comes to calendars, there are a few things that we can’t do in Figma because it’s a coding thing. So, I’m trying to find the best option to show how it would (generally) work, but I can’t seem to find the right fit.

For illustration purposes, what I would like to do is: when a user selects a date in the calendar, the overlay closes, the user is taken to a new frame, and the date they chose is displayed on the page.

I’m a brand new Figma user, and I feel like the answer is probably super simple, but I’m stumped >.<

Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi. You can’t send values between frames like that. You will need one frame for every date that you want to be able to choose, and then link the dates to those frames. If your design allows, make your date picker into a component and make variants for different dates. This avoids having to link to multiple frames, and instead just replace the component.
