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

public abstract int[] Eras { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32[]
An array of integers that represents the eras in the current calendar.

The eras are in reverse chronological order, with the current era as the first element of the array, and the oldest era as the last element of the array. For example, the value of the current era in JapaneseCalendar is 4, which is the first element of the array.

The following code example displays the values contained in JapaneseCalendar.Eras.


using System;
using System.Globalization;


public class Example
{

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

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

      // Displays the values in the Eras property.
      for (int i = 0; i < myCal.Eras.Length; i++)
      {
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Eras[{0}] = {1}", i, myCal.Eras[i]) + "\n";
      }

   }

}

/*
This code produces the following output.

Eras[0] = 4
Eras[1] = 3
Eras[2] = 2
Eras[3] = 1
