Hi I have a calendar extender in the edititemtemplate section of a gridview. I need to set the start date to the current day. I did this on another page by writing

 CalendarExtender1.StartDate = DateTime.Today;

However as the extender is in a gridview it isn't appearing in the back end code. Any ideas how I can fix this. The code for the gridview is.

 <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" 
                AllowSorting="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="ID" 
                DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" BorderColor="#333333"
        Font-Size="Medium" ForeColor="#FFCCCC" HorizontalAlign="Center"
        CellPadding="2" CellSpacing="2" 
        EmptyDataText="You have no upcoming appointments." >
        <AlternatingRowStyle Font-Bold="false" ForeColor="#FF99CC" />
                <Columns>    
                      <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Date" SortExpression="Period">
                          <EditItemTemplate>
                              <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Period", "{0:d}") %>'></asp:TextBox>
                              <ajaxToolkit:CalendarExtender ID="CalendarExtender1" runat="server" TargetControlID="TextBox1" Format="dd/MM/yyyy">
                              </ajaxToolkit:CalendarExtender>
                          </EditItemTemplate>
                          <ItemTemplate>
                              <asp:Label ID="Label3" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Period", "{0:d}") %>'></asp:Label>
                          </ItemTemplate>
                      </asp:TemplateField>
                    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Time" SortExpression="Time">
