Hello Venkat,

I'm assuming you're asking how to default the RadDateTimePicker to today's date. If so, this is how you would do it:

Code-Behind:
RadDateTimePicker.SelectedDate = DateTime.Today

Or in javascript, you can handle the OnClientLoad event of the RadDateTimePicker:
function OnClientLoad(sender, args) {
    sender.set_selectedDate(new Date());
}

If you're asking how to highlight today's date in the date picker popup. It would look like so:

ASPX:
<telerik:RadDateTimePicker ID="RadDateTimePicker1" runat="server">
    <Calendar>
        <SpecialDays>
            <telerik:RadCalendarDay Repeatable="Today" Date="" ItemStyle-CssClass="rcToday" />
        </SpecialDays>
    </Calendar>
</telerik:RadDatePicker>

I hope that helps.
