    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:

    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:

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

    I hope that helps.
