Dynamic DropDownList with Month Names


try this example to fill DropdownList with Month Names

1) create new website and add web page

2) In Default.aspx add dropdownlist control

3) In Code behind add the following code :-

    #region Method to Fill the a DropDownList with Month Names and set the Current Month Selected
    /// <summary>
    /// fills a dropDownlist with month list.
    /// </summary>
    /// The DropDown List that will Hold the Months.
    /// if set to <c>true</c> the Current Month will be selected.
    public void GetMyMonthList(DropDownList MyddlMonthList, bool SetCurruntMonth)
        DateTime month = Convert.ToDateTime("1/1/2000");
        for (int i = 0; i < 12; i++)
            DateTime NextMont = month.AddMonths(i);
            ListItem list = new ListItem();
            list.Text = NextMont.ToString("MMMM");
            list.Value = NextMont.Month.ToString();
        if (SetCurruntMonth == true)
            MyddlMonthList.Items.FindByValue(DateTime.Now.Month.ToString()).Selected = true;

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!IsPostBack)
            GetMyMonthList(DropDownList1, false);

Hope this helps

Good Luck.
