Property Value

Type: System.DateTime

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

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

using System;
using System.Globalization;

public class SamplesCalendar  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Create an instance of the calendar.
      JulianCalendar myCal = new JulianCalendar();
      Console.WriteLine( myCal.ToString() );

      // Create an instance of the GregorianCalendar.
      GregorianCalendar myGre = new 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: 01/03/0001 (in Gregorian, 01/01/0001)
MaxSupportedDateTime: 10/19/9999 (in Gregorian, 12/31/9999)
