UmAlQuraCalendar.GetLeapMonth Method (Int32, Int32)

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Calculates the leap month for a specified year and era.

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

public override int GetLeapMonth (
	int year,
	int era
public int GetLeapMonth (
	int year, 
	int era
public override function GetLeapMonth (
	year : int, 
	era : int
) : int



A year.


An era. Specify CurrentEra or UmAlQuraEra.

Return Value

The return value is always 0 because the UmAlQuraCalendar type does not support the notion of a leap month.

Exception typeCondition


year is less than 1318 or greater than 1450.


era is not CurrentEra or UmAlQuraEra.

In a calendar that supports the notion of a leap month, the leap month can occur either after a particular month or after any month in a year. For example, the EastAsianLunisolarCalendar.GetMonth method returns a number between 1 and 13 that indicates the month associated with a specified date. If there is a leap month between the eighth and ninth months of the year, the GetMonth method returns 8 for the eighth month, 9 for the leap eighth month, and 10 for the ninth month.
