Hello,
you should set it in the the "code behind".
Search for the best event to do this. then set the property.
Which is then best event  depends on the structure of your site.

The following code:
Control myControl = FindControl("valHireDateRange");
generates:
The type or namespace name 'Control' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

Please advise.

How about settig the MaximumValue property to something like
    DateTime.Today.ToString()
    DateTime.Today.ToString("yyyy/MM/dd")
