Grid veiw format a date so it shows the month name


Hi all,
I have a grid view which displays a date from a database. I have the date in the dd-mm-yyyy format by putting this code in the source of the aspx page:
DataFormatString="{0:dd-M-yyyy}" HtmlEncode="False"

Is there a format i can use to get the following:
2 March 2006

instead of 2/3/2006?

Cant find the right info on this as there so much on it!
Cheers
D

How about changing the field to a Templatefield...like so:

<asp :TemplateField HeaderText=“CreationDate” >
   <edititemtemplate>
    <asp :Label ID=“Label1&#8243; runat=“server”
      Text=‘<%# Eval("CreationDate", "{0:dd-M-yyyy}") %>‘>
    </asp>
   </edititemtemplate>
   <itemtemplate>
    <asp :Label ID="Label1" runat="server"
      Text=’<%# Bind(“CreationDate”, “{0:dd-M-yyyy}”) %>‘>
    </asp>
   </itemtemplate>
  </asp>

Hope that helps,

Regards,
Max.
