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

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

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

public DateTime(
	int year,
	int month,
	int day,
	int hour,
	int minute,
	int second,
	int millisecond
)

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).
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).

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.

-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.

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, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Calendar) constructor.

The Kind property is initialized to Unspecified.

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(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32) constructor to instantiate a DateTime value.


DateTime date1 = new DateTime(2010, 8, 18, 16, 32, 18, 500);
outputBlock.Text += date1.ToString("M/dd/yyyy h:mm:ss.fff tt") + "\n";
// The example displays the following output:
//      8/18/2010 4:32:18.500 PM
