PersianCalendar.ToFourDigitYear Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Converts the specified year to a four-digit year representation.

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

public override int ToFourDigitYear (
	int year
)
public int ToFourDigitYear (
	int year
)
public override function ToFourDigitYear (
	year : int
) : int

Parameters

year

An integer from 1 through 9378 that represents the year to convert.

Return Value

An integer that contains the four-digit representation of year.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

year is less than 0 or greater than 9378.

This method converts the year parameter to a four-digit year representation using the TwoDigitYearMax property. The return value is the upper boundary of a 100-year range that allows a two-digit year to be properly translated to a four-digit year. For example, if the 100-year range is from 1930 through 2029, then a two-digit value of 30 is interpreted as 1930 while a two-digit value of 29 is interpreted as 2029.
