Hi Devendar,


Thanks for contacting Syncfusion forums.


Your requirement setting the start date in Datepicker can be achieved using MinDate property of the control. Please refer the below code snippet.



        public ActionResult Index()


            DatePickerModel model = new DatePickerModel();


            //To set the start date                                     // You can also set the date like this         

            model.MinDate = DateTime.Today.Date;                        model.MinDate = new DateTime(2013, 01, 10);


            //To set the end date

            model.MaxDate = DateTime.Now.AddMonths(5);                  model.MaxDate = new DateTime(2013, 12, 10);


            // To set the deafult date

            model.DefaultDate = new DateTime(2013, 02, 20);

            model.DisplayDefaultDateOnLoad = true;


            ViewData["date"] = model;

            return View();
