A 2-digit year from 0 through 99, or a 4-digit Hebrew calendar year from 5343 through 5999.
Return ValueIf the year parameter is a 2-digit year, the return value is the corresponding 4-digit year. If the year parameter is a 4-digit year, the return value is the unchanged year parameter.
The ToFourDigitYear method uses the year parameter, the TwoDigitYearMax property, and a 2-digit year to calculate a 4-digit year. The century is determined by finding the sole occurrence of the 2-digit year parameter within that 100-year range. For example, if TwoDigitYearMax is set to 5729, the 100-year range is from 5630 to 5729; therefore, a 2-digit value of 30 is interpreted as 5630, while a 2-digit value of 29 is interpreted as 5729.
If the TwoDigitYearMax property is the special value 99, the ToFourDigitYear method ignores the settings in Regional and Language Options (or Regional Options or Regional Settings) in Control Panel in Windows and returns the year parameter unchanged.
