HebrewCalendar.AddMonths Method

Returns a DateTime that is the specified number of months away from the specified DateTime.

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

public override DateTime AddMonths(
	DateTime time,
	int months
)

Parameters

time
Type: System.DateTime

The DateTime to which to add months.

months
Type: System.Int32

The number of months to add.

Return Value

Type: System.DateTime
The DateTime that results from adding the specified number of months to the specified DateTime.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

The resulting DateTime is outside the supported range.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

months is less than -120,000 or greater than 120,000.

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

The day part of the resulting DateTime is affected if the resulting day is not a valid day in the resulting month of the resulting year. It is changed to the last valid day in the resulting month of the resulting year. The year part of the resulting DateTime is affected if the resulting month is outside the year of the specified DateTime. This implementation supports only the current era. Therefore, ArgumentException is thrown if the resulting year is outside the era of the specified DateTime. The time-of-day part of the resulting DateTime remains the same as the specified DateTime.

For example, if the specified month is Av, which has 30 days, the specified day is the 30th day of that month, and the value of the months parameter is 5, the resulting year is one more than the specified year, the resulting month is Tevet, and the resulting day is the 29th day, which is the last day in Tevet.

If the value of the months parameter is negative, the resulting DateTime is earlier than the specified DateTime.

The Kind property of the returned DateTime value always equals DateTimeKind.Unspecified. You can preserve the Kind property of the time parameter by calling the DateTime.SpecifyKind method, as the following example shows.

returnTime = DateTime.SpecifyKind(cal.AddMonths(time, months), time.Kind);

The following code example displays the values of several components of a DateTime in terms of the Hebrew calendar.

using System;
using System.Globalization;


public class SamplesHebrewCalendar  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Sets a DateTime to April 3, 2002 of the Gregorian calendar.
      DateTime myDT = new DateTime( 2002, 4, 3, new GregorianCalendar() );

      // Creates an instance of the HebrewCalendar.
      HebrewCalendar myCal = new HebrewCalendar();

      // Displays the values of the DateTime.
      Console.WriteLine( "April 3, 2002 of the Gregorian calendar equals the following in the Hebrew calendar:" );
      DisplayValues( myCal, myDT );

      // Adds two years and ten months.
      myDT = myCal.AddYears( myDT, 2 );
      myDT = myCal.AddMonths( myDT, 10 );

      // Displays the values of the DateTime.
      Console.WriteLine( "After adding two years and ten months:" );
      DisplayValues( myCal, myDT );

   }

   public static void DisplayValues( Calendar myCal, DateTime myDT )  {
      Console.WriteLine( "   Era:        {0}", myCal.GetEra( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Year:       {0}", myCal.GetYear( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Month:      {0}", myCal.GetMonth( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   DayOfYear:  {0}", myCal.GetDayOfYear( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   DayOfMonth: {0}", myCal.GetDayOfMonth( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   DayOfWeek:  {0}", myCal.GetDayOfWeek( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine();
   }

}

/*
