Leap years in the Taiwan calendar correspond to the same leap years in the Gregorian calendar. A leap year in the Gregorian calendar is defined as a Gregorian year that is evenly divisible by four, except if it is divisible by 100. However, Gregorian years that are divisible by 400 are leap years. 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 Taiwan calendar does not have any leap months.

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


using System;
using System.Globalization;


public class Example
{

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

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

      // Checks all the months in five years in the current era.
      int iMonthsInYear;
      for (int y = 90; y <= 94; y++)
      {
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0}:\t", y);
         iMonthsInYear = myCal.GetMonthsInYear(y, TaiwanCalendar.CurrentEra);
         for (int m = 1; m <= iMonthsInYear; m++)
            outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\t{0}", myCal.IsLeapMonth(y, m, TaiwanCalendar.CurrentEra));
         outputBlock.Text += "\n";
      }

   }

}
