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, Int32, Int32, Int32, Calendar) constructor.

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

The following example uses the DateTime constructor to instantiate a DateTime value..


DateTime date1 = new DateTime(2010, 8, 18, 16, 32, 0);
outputBlock.Text += date1.ToString() + "\n";
// The example displays the following output:
//      8/18/2010 4:32:00 PM
