Initialize datetimepicker value

I want to initialize a set of datetimepickers with the previous days shift start times when the view loads but then allow the user to change it afterwards.

I was wondering if there was a simple clean way to do this? I already have the times being calculated.

In vision I’ve had good luck using a binding and turning polling off. I think datetimepicker is a perspective component, but you could try the same strategy.

Any binding should work for you just fine. If you’re using a Named Query, then you should make sure to leave polling off. If using an Expression binding which uses a function which allows for polling, make sure you set the polling argument to 0 (like now(0) ). Property bindings require no omissions, but if the value they are bound to changes they will overwrite the user-selected value.
