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

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

Public Overrides Function ToFourDigitYear (
	year As Integer
) As Integer

Parameters

year
Type: System.Int32

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

Return Value

Type: System.Int32

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

Exception Condition
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.

ToFourDigitYear supports either a two-digit year or a four-digit year. Passing a two-digit year value (less than 100) causes the method to convert the value to a four-digit value according to the TwoDigitYearMax value representing the appropriate century. If the application supplies a four-digit year value that is within the supported calendar range to ToFourDigitYear, the method returns the actual input value. If the application supplies a four-digit value that is outside the supported calendar range, or if it supplies a negative value, the method throws an exception.

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