	int era
)

)
public function GetEraName (
	era : int
) : String

Parameters

era

The integer representing the era.

Return Value

A string containing the name of the era.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

era does not represent a valid era in the calendar specified in the Calendar property.

The era name is the name a calendar uses to refer to a period of time reckoned from a fixed point or event. For example, "A.D." or "C.E." is the current era in the Gregorian calendar.

The valid values for era are listed in the Eras property of the appropriate class derived from Calendar. For example: JapaneseCalendar.Eras displays a list of eras that are supported by this implementation.

Notes to Callers If DateTimeFormatInfo.Calendar is the TaiwanCalendar but the Thread.CurrentCulture is not "zh-TW", then NativeCalendarName, GetEraName, and GetAbbreviatedEraName return an empty string ("").
