if u mean explaination: then

First add an .aspx page then drag n drop ddl on page and set its property to autopostback = true. then

from design page double click the ddl its takes u to the code behind page where u will be coding. just find the Page_load event to add the
ddl1.Items.Add(Format(Date.Today, "dd MMM yyyy"))

sir,i did as u told but am getting 3 errors,those are:

Error 1 The name 'ddl1' does not exist in the current context
Error 2 The name 'Format' does not exist in the current context
Error 3 The name 'Date' does not exist in the current context
