Calendar Date Picker set value from value attribute

If there a way to have the Calendar/Date picker automatically set the value if the value attribute is populated? I was expecting it to work this way without me having to manually set the value.

<input type="text" readonly="readonly" name="SpecificDate" id="specificDate" value="3/21/2020">
<input type="text" readonly="readonly" name="DateRange" id="dateRange" value="3/21/2020 - 3/25/2020">


No, it can not parse dates in reverse direction :slight_smile:
