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

Parameters

year

An integer that represents the year.

era

An integer that represents the era.

using System.Globalization;

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

      // Displays the header.
      Console.Write( "YEAR\t" );
      for ( int y = 2001; y <= 2005; y++ )
         Console.Write( "\t{0}", y );
      Console.WriteLine();

      // Displays the value of the CurrentEra property.
      Console.Write( "CurrentEra:" );
      for ( int y = 2001; y <= 2005; y++ )
         Console.Write( "\t{0}", myCal.GetDaysInYear( y, GregorianCalendar.CurrentEra ) );
      Console.WriteLine();

      // Displays the values in the Eras property.
      for ( int i = 0; i < myCal.Eras.Length; i++ )  {
         Console.Write( "Era {0}:\t", myCal.Eras[i] );

         Console.WriteLine();
      }

   }
