DateTime Constructor (Int32, Int32, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the DateTime structure to the specified year, month, and day.

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

public DateTime(
	int year,
	int month,
	int day
)

Parameters

year
Type: System.Int32
The year (1 through 9999).
month
Type: System.Int32
The month (1 through 12).
day
Type: System.Int32
The day (1 through the number of days in month).

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

year is less than 1 or greater than 9999.

-or-

month is less than 1 or greater than 12.

-or-

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

ArgumentException

The specified parameters evaluate to earlier than DateTime.MinValue or later than DateTime.MaxValue.

This constructor interprets the year, month, and day parameters as a year, month, and day in the Gregorian calendar. To instantiate a DateTime value by using the year, month, and day in another calendar, call the DateTime(Int32, Int32, Int32, Calendar) constructor.

The time of day for the resulting DateTime is midnight (00:00:00). The Kind property is initialized to DateTimeKind.Unspecified.

The following example uses the DateTime(Int32, Int32, Int32) constructor to instantiate a DateTime value. The example also illustrates that this overload creates a DateTime value whose time component equals midnight (or 0:00).


DateTime date1 = new DateTime(2010, 8, 18);
outputBlock.Text += date1.ToString() + "\n";
// The example displays the following output:
//      8/18/2010 12:00:00 AM
