label1.Text = dateTimePicker1.Value.ToShortDateString();


here what is dateTimePicker1 means.
I tried with it but its giving error dateTimePicker1 name doesn't exist in the current context.
what should i write with this to get proper solution.

dateTimePicker1 is a Control which displays the date and Time visually. This control help to select the date and time visually.
U can get currently selected date or Time using dateTimePicker1.Value dateTimePicker1.Value.ToShortDateString(); gets the Date in Short Format.
Also in DateTime class, ToShortDateString() is possible.

DateTime dateTime = new DateTime();
    MessageBox.Show ( dateTime.ToShortDateString() );

You can format the DateTime like:

DateTime dt = new DateTime();
System.Concole.Write( dt.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy")

or the format that you like.

But im using c# in web application. datetime stored in DB, but what i need is only date is displayed in reports. what can i do???

Yes I also have working on c# web application and need the date with time also from the database and I use code like below:

textBoxName.Text = DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString();

I'm not sure it is the one you need or not.
