Description Chris Stephens 2016-06-23 11:48:18 UTC
When setting the DateTimePicker.MinimumDate and MaximumDate by way of binding to your model in xaml, they are not working. Setting them in code, then they work correctly.

This does not work....
 <DatePicker x:Name="orderDate" Date="{Binding OrderDate}"  >
              <DatePicker.MinimumDate Date="{Binding MinimumOrderDate}">
              <DatePicker.MaximumDate Date="{Binding MaximumOrderDate}">

This DOES work....

 orderDate.SetValue(DatePicker.MinimumDateProperty, document.MinimumOrderDate);

..so does...

  orderDate.MinimumDate = document.MinimumOrderDate;

It's a UWP project, have not looked at iOS or Android.

Try binding like this in XAML:

<DatePicker x:Name="orderDate" Date="{Binding OrderDate}" 
    MinimumDate="{Binding MinimumOrderDate}" 
    MaximumDate="{Binding MaximumOrderDate}">

That works for me on Android, iOS, and Windows UWP.
