Date pickers return a DateTime object which has Month and Year properties.

Use Format property.
dateTimePicker1.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom
dateTimePicker1.CustomFormat = "MMMM yyyy" 'or whatever you want

Solution 2 and 3 will crash with an OutOfBounds Exception if the Value has a date which is greater than the number of days in the Next/Previous month and the user changes month using the arrow buttons. For Example when the Value is 10/31/2014 and the control displays October, 2014. When you change the Month to September the Value is set to 9/31/2014 which is an invalid date and causes an exception.

A workaround is
Private Sub SalesDatePicker_ValueChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles SalesDatePicker.ValueChanged
    If SalesDatePicker.Value.Day <> 1 Then
        SalesDatePicker.Value = DateSerial(SalesDatePicker.Value.Year, SalesDatePicker.Value.Month, 1)
    End If
End Sub

Interesting! Have you considered fleshing this out and posting it as a Tip?

I have never done a tip what does it involve. I have a working solution it would be easy to extract.
