SelectedDate does not change in ViewModel

Thread ID:

Asked On October 31, 2018 10:20 PM UTC

Hello, I have a SfSchedule control defined liket his in XAML:

<syncfusion:SfSchedule ScheduleView="MonthView" SelectedDate="{Binding SelectedDate, Mode = TwoWay}"/>

And the following ViewModel:

public class CalendarViewModel : ViewModelBase
        private DateTime selectedDate;
        public DateTime SelectedDate
                return selectedDate;
                if (selectedDate == value)
                selectedDate = value;
        public ICommand ViewCommand { get; private set; }
        public CalendarViewModel()
            SelectedDate = DateTime.Today;
            ViewCommand = new Command(OpenDailyFoodListPage);

        private async void OpenDailyFoodListPage()
            var page = new DailyFoodListPage(SelectedDate);
            await navigationService.NavigateToAsync(page);

     When my page is opened the SfSchedule has the current date selected, which is correct, but upon selecting a different date the SelectedDate property in the ViewModel does not change at all. The setter never seems to get called at all upon selecting a different date in the SfSchedule. Am I doing something wrong or is it an underlying problem with the Binding?
