Represents the greatest possible value of DateTimeOffset. This field is read-only.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The value of this constant is 12/31/9999 11:59:59 PM +00:00.
The property is used to determine whether the value of a new DateTimeOffset object or the DateTimeOffset value returned by an arithmetic operation is the same as or earlier than this maximum range value. If it is not, the method throws an ArgumentOutOfRangeException. Any DateTimeOffset value is converted to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) before the method compares it with . This means that a DateTimeOffset value whose date and time are close to the maximum range, but whose offset is negative, may throw an exception. For example, the value 12/31/9999 11:00 PM -02:00 is out of range because it is one hour later than when it is converted to UTC.
Some calendars, such as the UmAlQuraCalendar, support an upper date range that is earlier than MaxValue. In these cases, trying to access MaxValue in variable assignments or formatting and parsing operations can throw an ArgumentOutOfRangeException. Instead of retrieving the value of DateTime.MaxValue, you can retrieve the value of the specified culture's latest valid date value from the Calendar.MaxSupportedDateTime property.
