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

property DateTime MaxSupportedDateTime {
	virtual DateTime get() override;

Property Value

Type: System::DateTime

The latest date and time supported by the HijriCalendar type, which is equivalent to the last moment of December 31, 9999 C.E. in the Gregorian calendar.

December 31, 9999 C.E. is equivalent to the 3rd day of the 4th month of the year 9666 in the Hijri calendar.

The following code example gets the minimum value and the maximum value of the calendar.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;

int main()
   // Create an instance of the calendar.
   HijriCalendar^ myCal = gcnew HijriCalendar;
   Console::WriteLine( myCal );

   // Create an instance of the GregorianCalendar.
   GregorianCalendar^ myGre = gcnew GregorianCalendar;

   // Display the MinSupportedDateTime and its equivalent in the GregorianCalendar.
   DateTime myMin = myCal->MinSupportedDateTime;
   Console::Write( "MinSupportedDateTime: {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4}", myCal->GetMonth( myMin ), myCal->GetDayOfMonth( myMin ), myCal->GetYear( myMin ) );
   Console::WriteLine( " (in Gregorian, {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4})", myGre->GetMonth( myMin ), myGre->GetDayOfMonth( myMin ), myGre->GetYear( myMin ) );

   // Display the MaxSupportedDateTime and its equivalent in the GregorianCalendar.
   DateTime myMax = myCal->MaxSupportedDateTime;
   Console::Write( "MaxSupportedDateTime: {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4}", myCal->GetMonth( myMax ), myCal->GetDayOfMonth( myMax ), myCal->GetYear( myMax ) );
   Console::WriteLine( " (in Gregorian, {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4})", myGre->GetMonth( myMax ), myGre->GetDayOfMonth( myMax ), myGre->GetYear( myMax ) );

This code produces the following output.

MinSupportedDateTime: 01/01/0001 (in Gregorian, 07/18/0622)
MaxSupportedDateTime: 04/03/9666 (in Gregorian, 12/31/9999)
