  2. string sql="insert into dummy(date)values(@date)
  4. sqlcommand cmd=new sqlcommand(sql,con)
  5. cmd.parameters.Add("@date", SqlDbtype.datetime).values=maskedtextbox1.text;
  6. cmd.ExecuteNonquery();

I believe you are getting an error because you are .text from the maskedtextbox1 is returning a string instead of a date. To convert it you should be able to cast it to a date using the following code example.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. DateTime convertedDate = DateTime.Parse(dateString);

I am not big on localization for SQL Server, but I believe there is a way you can change your SQL Server to natively handle dates the way you want to.

DateTime fields are NOT stored as strings in SqlServer. How you want to view them, does not matter to it.
You can use DateTime.TryPar seExact() to supply the input format of "dd/MM/yyyy" and populate a DateTime object that you can supply to the sql parameter.
