Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

year is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

month is outside the range supported by the calendar.

day is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

era is outside the range supported by the calendar.

To make up for the difference between the calendar year and the actual time that the earth rotates around the sun or the actual time that the moon rotates around the earth, a leap year has a different number of days from a standard calendar year. Each Calendar implementation defines leap years differently.

A leap day is a day that occurs only in a leap year. For example, in the Gregorian calendar, the 29th day of February is the only leap day.

Notes to Inheritors:

The derived class must support CurrentEra when it is passed as the era parameter. One way to support CurrentEra is by replacing it with the value stored in Eras[0], which is the value for the current era of the calendar.
