Solution:
We can implement this in both CSOM and c#.net. Since the requirement is to implement in a server side control. Below is the code snippet to achieve this:



SharePoint Date Control:

<SharePoint:DateTimeControl ID=”cldStartDt” runat=”server” />
<SharePoint:DateTimeControl ID=”cldEndDt” runat=”server” />
<asp:Label ID=”lblMessage” runat=”server” ></asp:Label>

C# code to populate default values:

cldStartDt.SelectedDate = Convert.ToDateTime(DateTime.Today.ToString());
cldEndDt.SelectedDate = Convert.ToDateTime(DateTime.MaxValue.AddYears(-1111).ToString());

“Convert.ToDateTime(DateTime.Today.ToString())” with this we can get today’s date in Date and Time format.
Convert.ToDateTime(DateTime.MaxValue.AddYears(-1111).ToString()) with this we get the end date as “12/31/8888”

Validation to ensure that EndDate is not less than Start Date:

Which the below code snippet we can achieve the validation.
int dtDiff = Convert.ToInt32(endDate.Date.Subtract(Convert.ToDateTime(cldStartDt)).Days);
if(dtDiff>0)
{
lblMessage.Text = “End Date must be greater than Start Date!!”;
}
