HebrewCalendar.GetDaysInYear Method (Int32, Int32)

Updated: October 2010

Returns the number of days in the specified year in the specified era.

Namespace:  System.Globalization
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override int GetDaysInYear(
	int year,
	int era
)

Parameters

year
Type: System.Int32
An integer that represents the year.
era
Type: System.Int32
An integer that represents the era. Specify Calendar.Eras[Calendar.CurrentEra].

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of days in the specified year in the specified era.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

year or era is outside the range supported by the current HebrewCalendar object.

For example, this method returns an integer from 353 to 355 or from 383 to 385, depending on the placement of Jewish holidays and depending on whether year is a leap year.

This implementation of the HebrewCalendar class recognizes only the Hebrew years 5343 to 5999 (1583 to 2239 in the Gregorian calendar).

The following code example calls GetDaysInYear for five years in each era.


using System;
using System.Globalization;


public class Example
{

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

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

      // Displays the header.
      outputBlock.Text += "YEAR\t";
      for (int y = 5761; y <= 5765; y++)
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\t{0}", y);
      outputBlock.Text += "\n";

      // Displays the value of the CurrentEra property.
      outputBlock.Text += "CurrentEra:";
      for (int y = 5761; y <= 5765; y++)
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\t{0}", myCal.GetDaysInYear(y, HebrewCalendar.CurrentEra));
      outputBlock.Text += "\n";

      // Displays the values in the Eras property.
      for (int i = 0; i < myCal.Eras.Length; i++)
      {
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Era {0}:\t", myCal.Eras[i]);
         for (int y = 5761; y <= 5765; y++)
            outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\t{0}", myCal.GetDaysInYear(y, myCal.Eras[i]));
         outputBlock.Text += "\n";
      }

   }

}
