How to populate a DropDownList with Culture-specific Month names

DateTimeFormatInfo.MonthNames is a useful property to fetch the culture-specific full names of the month. This property gets a string array containing the names of the month. Remember to add a reference to the System.Globalization namespace.

Here’s how to use this property and populate a DropDownList with month names:


string[] names = DateTimeFormatInfo.CurrentInfo.MonthNames;
DropDownList1.DataSource = names;


Dim names() As String = DateTimeFormatInfo.CurrentInfo.MonthNames
DropDownList1.DataSource = names
