Type: System.Int32
An integer from 1 to 30 that represents the day.
era
Type: System.Int32

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

era is outside the range supported by this calendar.

-or-

year is outside the range supported by this calendar.

month is outside the range supported by this calendar.

-or-

day is outside the range supported by this calendar.

In every 30-year cycle that ends with a year that is evenly divisible by 30, the 2nd, 5th, 7th, 10th, 13th, 16th, 18th, 21st, 24th, 26th, and 29th years are leap years. A common year has 354 days and a leap year has 355 days.

A leap day is a day that occurs only in a leap year. In the Hijri calendar, the 30th day of Zulhijjah is the only leap day.

The following code example calls the IsLeapDay method for the last day of the second month (February) for five years in each of the eras.


using System;
using System.Globalization;


public class Example
{

   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {

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

      // Creates a holder for the last day of the second month (February).
      int iLastDay;

      // Displays the header.
      outputBlock.Text += "YEAR\t";
      for (int y = 1421; y <= 1425; y++)
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\t{0}", y);
      outputBlock.Text += "\n";

      // Checks five years in the current era.
      outputBlock.Text += "CurrentEra:";
      for (int y = 1421; y <= 1425; y++)
      {
         iLastDay = myCal.GetDaysInMonth(y, 2, HijriCalendar.CurrentEra);
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\t{0}", myCal.IsLeapDay(y, 2, iLastDay, HijriCalendar.CurrentEra));
      }
      outputBlock.Text += "\n";

      // Checks five years in each of the eras.
      for (int i = 0; i < myCal.Eras.Length; i++)
      {
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Era {0}:\t", myCal.Eras[i]);
         for (int y = 1421; y <= 1425; y++)
         {
            iLastDay = myCal.GetDaysInMonth(y, 2, myCal.Eras[i]);
            outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\t{0}", myCal.IsLeapDay(y, 2, iLastDay, myCal.Eras[i]));
         }
         outputBlock.Text += "\n";
      }

   }

}
