HijriCalendar.HijriAdjustment Property

Gets or sets the number of days to add or subtract from the calendar to accommodate the variances in the start and the end of Ramadan and to accommodate the date difference between countries/regions.

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

public int HijriAdjustment { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
An integer from -2 to 2 that represents the number of days to add or subtract from the calendar.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The property is being set to an invalid value.

This implementation of the HijriCalendar class adjusts the calendar date by adding or subtracting a value from zero to two days to accommodate the variances in the start and the end of Ramadan and to accommodate the date difference between countries/regions. That value is stored in the HijriAdjustment property. If HijriAdjustment is not set explicitly, it derives its value from the settings in the regional and language options portion of Control Panel and is stored in the registry value HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\AddHijriDate. However, that information can change during the life of the AppDomain. The HijriCalendar class does not detect changes in the system settings automatically.

The following code example shows how HijriAdjustment affects the date.


using System;
using System.Globalization;

public class SamplesHijriCalendar  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Creates and initializes a HijriCalendar.
      HijriCalendar myCal = new HijriCalendar();

      // Creates a DateTime and initializes it to the second day of the first month of the year 1422.
      DateTime myDT = new DateTime( 1422, 1, 2, myCal );

      // Displays the current values of the DateTime.
      Console.WriteLine( "HijriAdjustment is {0}.", myCal.HijriAdjustment );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Year is {0}.", myCal.GetYear( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Month is {0}.", myCal.GetMonth( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Day is {0}.", myCal.GetDayOfMonth( myDT ) );

      // Sets the HijriAdjustment property to 2.
      myCal.HijriAdjustment = 2;
      Console.WriteLine( "HijriAdjustment is {0}.", myCal.HijriAdjustment );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Year is {0}.", myCal.GetYear( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Month is {0}.", myCal.GetMonth( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Day is {0}.", myCal.GetDayOfMonth( myDT ) );

      // Sets the HijriAdjustment property to -2.
      myCal.HijriAdjustment = -2;
      Console.WriteLine( "HijriAdjustment is {0}.", myCal.HijriAdjustment );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Year is {0}.", myCal.GetYear( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Month is {0}.", myCal.GetMonth( myDT ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Day is {0}.", myCal.GetDayOfMonth( myDT ) );

   }

}
