Determines whether the specified month in the specified year in the specified era is a leap month.

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

public override bool IsLeapMonth(
	int year,
	int month,
	int era
)

Parameters

year
Type: System.Int32
An integer that represents the year.
month
Type: System.Int32
An integer from 1 to 12 that represents the month.
era
Type: System.Int32
An integer that represents the era.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
This method always returns false, unless overridden by a derived class.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

year is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

month is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

era is outside the range supported by the calendar.

Unlike the Gregorian calendar, the Julian calendar defines a leap year as a year that is evenly divisible by four with no exceptions. Therefore, the calendar is inaccurate by one day every 128 years. For example, the year 1999 was not a leap year, but the year 2000 was. A common year has 365 days and a leap year has 366 days.

A leap month is an entire month that occurs only in a leap year. The Julian calendar does not have any leap months.

The following example calls IsLeapMonth for all the months in five years in the current era.


using System;
using System.Globalization;


public class SamplesJulianCalendar  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Creates and initializes a JulianCalendar.
      JulianCalendar myCal = new JulianCalendar();

      // Checks all the months in five years in the current era.
      int iMonthsInYear;
      for ( int y = 2001; y <= 2005; y++ )  {
         Console.Write( "{0}:\t", y );
         iMonthsInYear = myCal.GetMonthsInYear( y, JulianCalendar.CurrentEra );
         for ( int m = 1; m <= iMonthsInYear; m++ )
            Console.Write( "\t{0}", myCal.IsLeapMonth( y, m, JulianCalendar.CurrentEra ) );
         Console.WriteLine();
      }

   }

}
