Hello experts,

                   I am using a label to get the month name(Jan, Feb, Mar.....) using this line of code.
if (month > 12) month = month - 12;
        lblMonth.Text = String.Format("{0:MMMM}", DateTime.Parse(month.ToString() + "/01/1900"));

Now, how would I compare the month name in a label to the number(like 1 for Jan, 2 for Feb, 3 for Mar)..I just want to make some textboxes readonly by comparing the current month with the month name in the label.

I tried;
if (DateTime.Now.Month == Convert.ToDate(lblMonth.Text)
{
    //then do this
}

But I am not doing the casting right. Could someone please help?
