Date Picker

I believe I have a simple requirement that I have spent hours trying to fulfill.

I need the date picker to default to Today on the first load. On subsequent form loads the value displayed should be whatever value the user selected from choices. 

The form field initializing the date picker control is a SharePoint column. All aspx pages work properly. I can easily set the date picker defaults. The issue is after the initial save if I open the form two days later the value in the date picker resets to the current date. I need to set the date picker to today once, and on subsequent form loads have the value the user selected which is correctly stored in SharePoint, be displayed in the date picker.

Assuming this is in a Form - Change your DefaultDate property of the DatePicker to : Coalesce(Parent.Default, Today())
