Type: System::Int32

The year, between 1 and 9999.

TheYear property returns the year of the current instance in the Gregorian calendar. It does not return the year using the default calendar of the current culture. To retrieve the year using a particular calendar, you can call that calendar's GetYear method, as the following code shows.

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

The following example demonstrates the Year 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;
