You can achieve this requirement to disable editing in Datepicker by disabling AllowEdit API of Datepicker to false as given in the below code.
However, there is a known issue in Datepicker – Clear icon will not show up when allow editing is disabled. We have already considered this an issue and the fix for this will be included in upcoming Volume 1 release tentatively scheduled for roll out in the second week of March.
We suggest you go through our below help pages to explore more about Datepicker component.
