   I want to highlight the selected date on load of the control. I'm using Xamarin forms and MVVM. This is my Xaml

<Calendar:SfCalendar x:Name="calendar"                                    
                                     MaxDate="{Binding PlanEndDate,
                                     MinDate="{Binding PlanStartDate,
                                     SelectedDate="{Binding SelectedDate,

I have a property in my Viewmodel

 private DateTime _selectedate;

        public DateTime SelectedDate
            get { return _selectedate; }
            set { Set(() => SelectedDate, ref _selectedate, value); }

which is used to fetch the selected date. Now when I tap a date and save the page, I do get the SelectedDate, but I am not able to set the selected date in the control using the Property.
