Convert Date to Month Name in .Net

Today, my friend and I tried to find a way to convert date to a month name. E.g. 2008-08-08 to return August.

I tried to use String.Format(TODAY, “MMM”) ,String.Format(“MMM”,TODAY) “etc. To convert Date to Month Name sound quite simple, unforunately, I have spent quite a long time to find the solution.

Finally, I have find a solution online, which is to use the ToString’s method. E.g. Today.ToString({Format of the date}) to get the date format you want.


Is it quite easy, isn’t it?

Happy programming = )
