Hi Stefano,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We can set the value for datepicker control by using the API called “value”. It is used to specify the value for datepicker and its accepts the string or Date object as a value. For your convenience we have prepared a simple sample to show case how to set or get the value of datepicker and it can be downloadable from below link.

Sample Link: DatePicker-sample

In the attached sample, we have used the following code blocks to get or sets the date value.



// Creating an object to the DatePicker Element

   var datepickObj = $("#datepick").data('ejDatePicker');


// Set a value to the DatePicker

   datepickObj.option('value', new Date()); 


// Get a value of DatePicker

   var value = datepickObj.option('value');
