This question already has an answer here:

I setup a date field for my content type and also have an exposed date filter for my view, but I can't seem to figure out how to get the date picker popup to show up. Is there a setting that I have to set somewhere?

I've also installed Better Exposed Filters and I still don't see any option for my view. Also installed Date and the Calendar module. I know jQuery UI has a built in calendar popup and that's installed by default on Drupal 8 installs.

How do I turn this on?

This is usually because the ui.datepicker wasn't added as a dependency in your theme as this isn't usually enabled by default in themes.

I use the seven theme for administration, so I had to add the line:

  - core/jquery.ui.datepicker

Looks like this in my seven.libraries.yml file:

    You didn't do anything wrong. This simply doesn't work yet with just Drupal core. – Berdir Nov 20 '16 at 8:33
