Calendar::IsLeapMonth Method (Int32, Int32)

 

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

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

public:
virtual bool IsLeapMonth(
	int year,
	int month
)

Parameters

year
Type: System::Int32

An integer that represents the year.

month
Type: System::Int32

A positive integer that represents the month.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if the specified month is a leap month; otherwise, false.

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

year is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

month 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 month is an entire month that occurs only in a leap year. For example, in the Hebrew calendar, Adar Beit is the only leap month.

The following code example compares different implementations of the Calendar class.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;
int main()
{

   // Creates an instance of every Calendar type.
   array<Calendar^>^myCals = gcnew array<Calendar^>(8);
   myCals[ 0 ] = gcnew GregorianCalendar;
   myCals[ 1 ] = gcnew HebrewCalendar;
   myCals[ 2 ] = gcnew HijriCalendar;
   myCals[ 3 ] = gcnew JapaneseCalendar;
   myCals[ 4 ] = gcnew JulianCalendar;
   myCals[ 5 ] = gcnew KoreanCalendar;
   myCals[ 6 ] = gcnew TaiwanCalendar;
   myCals[ 7 ] = gcnew ThaiBuddhistCalendar;

   // For each calendar, displays the current year, the number of months in that year,
   // and the number of days in each month of that year.
      int i;
   int j;
   int iYear;
   int iMonth;
   int iDay;
   DateTime myDT = DateTime::Today;
   for ( i = 0; i < myCals->Length; i++ )
   {
      iYear = myCals[ i ]->GetYear( myDT );
      Console::WriteLine();
      Console::WriteLine( " {0}, Year: {1}", myCals[ i ]->GetType(), myCals[ i ]->GetYear( myDT ) );
      Console::WriteLine( "   MonthsInYear: {0}", myCals[ i ]->GetMonthsInYear( iYear ) );
      Console::WriteLine( "   DaysInYear: {0}", myCals[ i ]->GetDaysInYear( iYear ) );
      Console::WriteLine( "   Days in each month:" );
      Console::Write( "      " );
      for ( j = 1; j <= myCals[ i ]->GetMonthsInYear( iYear ); j++ )
         Console::Write( " {0, -5}", myCals[ i ]->GetDaysInMonth( iYear, j ) );
      Console::WriteLine();
      iMonth = myCals[ i ]->GetMonth( myDT );
      iDay = myCals[ i ]->GetDayOfMonth( myDT );
      Console::WriteLine( "   IsLeapDay: {0}", myCals[ i ]->IsLeapDay( iYear, iMonth, iDay ) );
      Console::WriteLine( "   IsLeapMonth: {0}", myCals[ i ]->IsLeapMonth( iYear, iMonth ) );
      Console::WriteLine( "   IsLeapYear: {0}", myCals[ i ]->IsLeapYear( iYear ) );

   }
}
