How to programmatically select the date in the Flutter Date Range Picker (SfDateRangePicker)

In the Flutter date range picker, you can programmatically select the date using selectedDate property of the DateRangePickerController.

In initState(), initialize the calendar controller.

final DateRangePickerController _controller = DateRangePickerController();

Using onViewChanged callback of the Flutter date picker, you can set the first date of visible dates as selected date. Please find the code snippet.

child: SfDateRangePicker(
  view: DateRangePickerView.month,
  controller: _controller,
  onViewChanged: viewChanged,
void viewChanged(DateRangePickerViewChangedArgs args) {
  SchedulerBinding.instance!.addPostFrameCallback((Duration duration) {
    _controller.selectedDate = args.visibleDateRange.startDate;

This no longer works properly when handling cell rendering via a builder. Any suggestions?
