InvalidOperationException

The current Calendar object is read-only.

This property allows a 2-digit year to be properly translated to a 4-digit year. For example, if this property is set to 2029, the 100-year range is from 1930 to 2029; therefore, a 2-digit value of 30 is interpreted as 1930, while a 2-digit value of 29 is interpreted as 2029.

The initial value of this property is derived from the settings in Regional and Language Options (or Regional Options or Regional Settings) in Control Panel in Windows. However, that information can change during the life of the AppDomain. The Calendar class does not detect changes in the system settings automatically. If the calendar is not supported in Regional and Language Options (or Regional Options or Regional Settings), the initial value of this property is the default value defined by the calendar class.
