You can use the startDate input to set defaultValue.

In your TS:

value = new Date(2020, 5, 20);

in your HTML:

  <label mdbLabel for="datepicker" class="form-label">Select a date</label>
  <mdb-datepicker-toggle [mdbDatepicker]="datepicker"></mdb-datepicker-toggle>
  <mdb-datepicker [startDate]="value" #datepicker></mdb-datepicker>

This is the only default value. This is not shown as a selected date. because the text field is empty even use this default value.

@Life.appadmin In this case your solution was correct (assuming you attached formControlName directive to the datepicker input element). You just need to make sure that the response.DateValue is in js date object format, for example: setValue(new Date(2021, 10, 15))
