Default Display today's date in a Dropdownlist

Hi everybody,

I would like to know if there is any chance to display in a dropdownlist today's date? I don't how to do that because I assume that I have to create some function that dynamically fills the datatextfield atribute, but I don't know where...

pd.The ddl is already filled with an array datasource, but I want to set by default today's date and when the user gets the page for the first time, the ddl displays this information(today's date)

Thanks a lot!!!!!

After you bind the array to the ddl you do this:

ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem(DateTime.Now.ToString())); //add today's date
ddl.SelectedIndex = ddl.Items.Count; //Set the selected item to the last one
