Thank you for the screenshot.
The error occurs because the value passed to the DatePicker is a date string, but the component is expecting a valid date object to be passed.
As for the change event, it will return a date object with date and time, but the time will be set to 00:00:00 which should not cause side effects.
If there are additional requirements, please share more details about the desired end result.
