Has anyone able to set the current date in Sitecore form 10.1 date picker?

Just like WFFM, we used the following script to set the current date.

    @<script type="text/javascript">
         if (typeof window.WffmFieldsData === 'undefined') {
             window.WffmFieldsData = {}

         window.WffmFieldsData["@Html.IdFor(x => Model.Value)"] =
             'defaultDate': new Date('@Model.Value'),
             'dateFormat': '@ClientDateFormatConverter.ConvertToClientFormat(Model.DateFormat)',
             'minDate': new Date('@Model.StartDate.Year', '@(Model.StartDate.Month - 1)', '@Model.StartDate.Day'),
             'maxDate': new Date('@Model.EndDate.Year', '@(Model.EndDate.Month - 1)', '@Model.EndDate.Day'),

I want to do the same in Sitecore forms date picker.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

If you want to set the default value in Sitecore Form controls for example a dropdown or a date picker then you need to implement a custom Form Value Provider.

You can follow this article to know how to implement a Value provide for prefilling form.


I have also given the answer to the same kind of scenario but that is for the drop-down list. Here is the link.

Hope this will help.
