hi friend please use the following code...in button click

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Calendar1.SelectedDate = Convert.ToDateTime(TextBox1.Text);
    }

For pure windows application use this. The above mentioned code is for webapplication in asp.net with c#.

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            monthCalendar1.SetDate(Convert.ToDateTime(textBox1.Text));
        
  
        }

Calendar1.SelectedDate = Convert.ToDateTime(txtdate.Text);

String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.
