TaiwanCalendar.MinSupportedDateTime Property

Gets the earliest date and time supported by the TaiwanCalendar class.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(false)]
public override DateTime MinSupportedDateTime { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.DateTime
The earliest date and time supported by the TaiwanCalendar class, which is equivalent to the first moment of January 1, 1912 C.E. in the Gregorian calendar.

Microsoft Visual Basic represents time of day as the specified time on the minimum date supported by DateTime, which is January 1, 0001 C.E. However, the TaiwanCalendar class does not support that minimum date. Consequently, if your application calls a method to format the time of day using the current calendar but does not specify a format specifier, formatting uses the ISO 8601 sortable ("s") date/time pattern format specifier instead of the default general ("G") date/time pattern format specifier. For more information, see Standard Date and Time Format Strings.

The following example gets the minimum value and the maximum value of the TaiwanCalendar class.


using System;
using System.Globalization;


public class Example
{

   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {

      // Create an instance of the calendar.
      TaiwanCalendar myCal = new TaiwanCalendar();
      outputBlock.Text += myCal.ToString() + "\n";

      // Create an instance of the GregorianCalendar.
      GregorianCalendar myGre = new GregorianCalendar();

      // Display the MinValue and its equivalent in the GregorianCalendar.
      DateTime myMin = myCal.MinSupportedDateTime;
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("MinSupportedDateTime: {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4}", myCal.GetMonth(myMin), myCal.GetDayOfMonth(myMin), myCal.GetYear(myMin));
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(" (in Gregorian, {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4})", myGre.GetMonth(myMin), myGre.GetDayOfMonth(myMin), myGre.GetYear(myMin)) + "\n";

      // Display the MaxValue and its equivalent in the GregorianCalendar.
      DateTime myMax = myCal.MaxSupportedDateTime;
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("MaxSupportedDateTime: {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4}", myCal.GetMonth(myMax), myCal.GetDayOfMonth(myMax), myCal.GetYear(myMax));
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(" (in Gregorian, {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4})", myGre.GetMonth(myMax), myGre.GetDayOfMonth(myMax), myGre.GetYear(myMax)) + "\n";

   }

}
