A leap year in the Gregorian calendar is defined as a year that is evenly divisible by four, except if it is divisible by 100. However, years that are divisible by 400 are leap years. For example, the year 1900 was not a leap year, but the year 2000 was. A common year has 365 days and a leap year has 366 days.

A leap month is an entire month that occurs only in a leap year. The Gregorian calendar does not have any leap months.

The following code example calls IsLeapMonth for all the months in five years in the current era.

using System;
using System.Globalization;


public class SamplesGregorianCalendar  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Creates and initializes a GregorianCalendar.
      GregorianCalendar myCal = new GregorianCalendar();

      // Checks all the months in five years in the current era. 
      int iMonthsInYear;
      for ( int y = 2001; y <= 2005; y++ )  {
         Console.Write( "{0}:\t", y );
         iMonthsInYear = myCal.GetMonthsInYear( y, GregorianCalendar.CurrentEra );
         for ( int m = 1; m <= iMonthsInYear; m++ )
            Console.Write( "\t{0}", myCal.IsLeapMonth( y, m, GregorianCalendar.CurrentEra ) );
         Console.WriteLine();
      }

   }

}
