DateTime::Day Property

Gets the day of the month represented by this instance.

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

public:
property int Day {
	int get ();
}

Property Value

Type: System::Int32
The day component, expressed as a value between 1 and 31.

The Day property always returns the day of the month in the Gregorian calendar, even if the current DateTime value was instantiated using some other calendar or if the current thread culture's default calendar is not the Gregorian calendar. To retrieve the day of the month of a particular date using some other calendar, call that calendar's Calendar::GetDayOfMonth method. The following example uses both the Day property and the HijriCalendar::GetDayOfMonth method to retrieve the day of the month for a DateTime value that is instantiated using the Hijri calendar.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

Similarly, the following example uses both the Day property and the HijriCalendar::GetDayOfMonth method to retrieve the day of the month when the current thread culture is ar-SA, which uses Hijri as its default calendar.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

The following example demonstrates the Day property.

System::DateTime moment = System::DateTime(
   1999, 1, 13, 3, 57, 32, 11 );

// Year gets 1999. 
int year = moment.Year;

// Month gets 1 (January). 
int month = moment.Month;

// Day gets 13. 
int day = moment.Day;

// Hour gets 3. 
int hour = moment.Hour;

// Minute gets 57. 
int minute = moment.Minute;

// Second gets 32. 
int second = moment.Second;

// Millisecond gets 11. 
int millisecond = moment.Millisecond;
