DateTime Constructor (Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Calendar)

Initializes a new instance of the DateTime structure to the specified year, month, day, hour, minute, second, and millisecond for the specified calendar.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
new : 
        year:int * 
        month:int * 
        day:int * 
        hour:int * 
        minute:int * 
        second:int * 
        millisecond:int * 
        calendar:Calendar -> DateTime

Parameters

year
Type: System.Int32

The year (1 through the number of years in calendar).

month
Type: System.Int32

The month (1 through the number of months in calendar).

day
Type: System.Int32

The day (1 through the number of days in month).

hour
Type: System.Int32

The hours (0 through 23).

minute
Type: System.Int32

The minutes (0 through 59).

second
Type: System.Int32

The seconds (0 through 59).

millisecond
Type: System.Int32

The milliseconds (0 through 999).

calendar
Type: System.Globalization.Calendar

The calendar that is used to interpret year, month, and day.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

calendar is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

year is not in the range supported by calendar.

-or-

month is less than 1 or greater than the number of months in calendar.

-or-

day is less than 1 or greater than the number of days in month.

-or-

hour is less than 0 or greater than 23.

-or-

minute is less than 0 or greater than 59.

-or-

second is less than 0 or greater than 59.

-or-

millisecond is less than 0 or greater than 999.

The Kind property is initialized to Unspecified.

The allowable values for year, month, and day depend on calendar. An exception is thrown if the specified date and time cannot be expressed using calendar.

For applications in which portability of date and time data or a limited degree of time zone awareness is important, you can use the corresponding DateTimeOffset constructor.

The System.Globalization namespace provides several calendars including GregorianCalendar and JulianCalendar.

The following example calls the DateTime(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Calendar) constructor twice to instantiate two DateTime values. The first call instantiates a DateTime value by using a PersianCalendar object. Because the Persian calendar cannot be designated as the default calendar for a culture, displaying a date in the Persian calendar requires individual calls to its PersianCalendar.GetMonth, PersianCalendar.GetDayOfMonth, and PersianCalendar.GetYear methods. The second call to the constructor instantiates a DateTime value by using a HijriCalendar object. The example changes the current culture to Arabic (Syria) and changes the current culture's default calendar to the Hijri calendar. Because Hijri is the current culture's default calendar, the Console.WriteLine method uses it to format the date. When the previous current culture (which is English (United States) in this case) is restored, the Console.WriteLine method uses the current culture's default Gregorian calendar to format the date.
