Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Public Overrides Function AddYears (
	time As Date,
	years As Integer
) As Date

Parameters

time
Type: System.DateTime

The DateTime to which to add years.

years
Type: System.Int32

The positive or negative number of years to add.

Return Value

Type: System.DateTime

The DateTime object that results from adding the specified number of years to the specified DateTime object.

Exception Condition
ArgumentException

The resulting DateTime is outside the supported range.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

years is less than -10,000 or greater than 10,000.

TheKind property of the returned DateTime value always equals DateTimeKind.Unspecified. You can preserve the Kind property of the time parameter by calling the DateTime.SpecifyKind method, as the following example shows.

returnTime = DateTime.SpecifyKind(cal.AddYears(time, years), time.Kind)

The following code example demonstrates the use of the AddYears method.
