How to format a day name to short day name, i.e if monday means "mon" tuesday "tue"

I am using dynamic controls, in that i want day name to be short instead of Monday "Mon" like this. How can I do it dynamically?

  1. Dim lblNewDate As Date = Date.ParseExact(lblDate.Text.ToString(), "dd/mm/yyyy", System.Globalization.DateTimeFormatInfo.InvariantInfo)
  2.             If isDataAvailable = 1 Then
  3.                 dayName = planDay
  4.             Else
  5.                 dayName = DateAndTime.WeekdayName(DateAndTime.Weekday(lblNewDate))
  6.             End If
  8.             lblDayName.ID = "lblDayName" & numOfRows
  9.             lblDayName.Text = dayName

In VB6 (which is what this forum is about) you'd simply use the Format$() function. For VB.Net you really should post here.
