DatePicker empty value

Have been playing some more with the DatePicker in an EditForm, but can't seem to work out how to ensure a blank date is displayed, rather than a date 'selected' by the system depending on the value of the StartYear.

For example, if the StartYear is 2017, then the DatePicker will display 1/1/2017 as the default, however this will then be written to the data source as part of the SubmitForm, with the result that incorrect date values will be recorded.

If you delete this date within the DatePicker, it is then 'replaced' with 31/12/2001


Does anyone have suggestions/workarounds on how to handle this.. was hoping the new version of the DatePicker would accommodate this?

One way I've found that works is to set the value of dpDate.Reset() to Blank() and call Reset(dpDate) before displaying the form or page etc.

Thanks ParakramaDhanan, I had no idea that setting was behind this and spend a good while long enough trying to resolve it before I found this thread
