Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The last year of a 100-year range that can be represented by a 2-digit year.

Exception Condition

The current HebrewCalendar object is read-only.


In a set operation, the Hebrew calendar year value is less than 5343 but is not 99, or the year value is greater than 5999.

The TwoDigitYearMax property allows a 2-digit year to be properly translated to a 4-digit year. For example, if this property is set to 5729, the 100-year range is from 5630 to 5729. Therefore, a 2-digit value of 30 is interpreted as 5630, while a 2-digit value of 29 is interpreted as 5729.

The initial value of this property is derived from the settings in the regional and language options portion of Control Panel. If the initial system setting changes during the life of your application the HebrewCalendar class does not automatically detect the change.

The special value 99 causes the ToFourDigitYear method to ignore the system settings and return the specified year unchanged.
