How to set a minimum date of today, while still allowing a date in the past to show

I'm trying to use an SfDatePicker control, and I'm running into a problem.  I have a date that I want to display in my application, and sometimes that date will be in the past.  If the user clicks on the date picker control to change it, I want to force the user to only be able to select a new date that is either today or in the future.  If they click away from the control without saving it, it should keep the old (past) date.  The problem I run into currently is that when I set the MinDate property to today, it also changes the current value being displayed to today (if it was previously in the past).  Is there a way to do this?  Thanks.

Nevermind - I switched to a calendar control, which works better for what I'm trying to do.

Hi Cameron,

We are happy to hear that you have resolved it.

We would like to inform you that, it is the default behaviour in SfDatePicker control. It will reset the value to MinDate if the selected date doesn't fall in between range values.

Please let us know if you have any query.
