from where you will get the year?


DateTime dtDate = new DateTime(2013, 6, 1);

 string MonthName= dtDate.ToString("MMMM");
In order to have a datetime, you need a minimum of three things: a day, a month, and a year (the time can be inferred to be midnight). You have only one: the month.

So the rest will have to be specified by your application. I suggest you try this:
int myMonth = 6;
int thisYear = DateTime.Now.Year;
DateTime dt = new DateTime(thisYear, myMonth, 1);

Hi Thank You So much... i got solution
<pre>DateTime baseDate = new DateTime(1900, 1, 1);
DateTime newDate = baseDate.AddDays(numDays);</pre>
More or less the same as above but as extention

public static class Extention
    public static string GetMonthAndYear(this int value)
        return new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year, value, 1).ToString("MMM-yyyy");

Then use it like this:

int yourNumber = 6;
