    Hi all,

    I'm running into a problem with changing the selected date of the calendar using binding (MVVM), I can successfully use the built in Xamarin.Forms DatePicker to change the selected date of the calendar, however when I do change it to say 3 years from today, the RadCalendar does not change to ensure the selected date is in view.

    I haven't found an override or anything in a custom renderer to get this behaviour to go, is this possible to implement?

    Hi Akin,

    You would need also to update the DisplayDate property of the Calendar when the SelectedDate is in different Month/Year in order to ensure the SelectedDate is in the current view. 
    You could bind DisplayDate to a property in the ViewModel and switch it according to the value of the DatePicker.  I have attached a sample app to demonstrate the exact implementation. Please download it and give it a try.

    Let me know if you have any additional questions.
