DatePicker loses value with server validation

In case anybody runs into this common scenario, here is the fix...



        public ActionResult Index(EditorValidation e)


            ViewBag.Message = 'Welcome to ASP.NET MVC!';

            DatePickerModel model = new DatePickerModel();

            model.DisplayDefaultDateOnLoad = true;

            ViewData["datemodel"] = model;

            return View();



@Html.Syncfusion().DatePickerFor(model => model.DateTimeValue, (DatePickerModel)ViewData["datemodel"])

It should be set to true by default anyway. I spent many hours trying to make it work until I found this setting. It is more likely that you would want it to be set to true. Come on Syncfusion !
