Returns a DateTime object that is set to the specified date, time, and era.

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

public override DateTime ToDateTime (
	int year,
	int month,
	int day,
	int hour,
	int minute,
	int second,
	int millisecond,
	int era
)
public DateTime ToDateTime (

	day : int, 
	hour : int, 
	minute : int, 
	second : int, 
	millisecond : int, 
	era : int
) : DateTime

Parameters

year

An integer from 1 through 9378 that represents the year.

month

An integer from 1 through 12 that represents the month.

day

An integer from 1 through 31 that represents the day.

hour

An integer from 0 through 23 that represents the hour.

minute

An integer from 0 through 59 that represents the minute.

second

An integer from 0 through 59 that represents the second.

millisecond

An integer from 0 through 999 that represents the millisecond.

era

An integer from 0 through 1 that represents the era.

Return Value

A DateTime object that is set to the specified date and time in the current era.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

year, month, day, hour, minute, second, millisecond, or era is outside the range supported by this calendar.

The ToDateTime method is useful because it can convert any date in the current calendar to a Gregorian calendar date. The Gregorian date can subsequently be used, for example, to compare dates in different calendars or create an equivalent date in a particular calendar.
