    hi @AishwaryaK

    set the mindate first that is the date from which picker should be enabled
    DateTime MinDate = new DateTime(System.DateTime.Now.Year, System.DateTime.Now.Month, System.DateTime.Now.Day);//this basically should be current date

    now set mindate property of datepicker from where it should start

    DatePicker StartDatePicker = new DatePicker
    Format = "dd/MM/yyyy",
    MinimumDate = MinDate,

    Hope this might help...

    Hi @AishwaryaK

    Datepicker having MinimumDate and MaximumDate properties we can set directly like below


                Date="{Binding PropertyDate}"
                MinimumDate ="{Binding PropertyMinimumDate}"
                MaximumDate = "{Binding PropertyMaximumDate}">

    ViewModel Constructor

            PropertyMinimumDate = DateTime.Now;


    In C#

          DatePicker datePicker = new DatePicker();
          datePicker.MinimumDate = DateTime.Now;
