The UmAlQuraCalendar class is nearly identical to the HijriCalendar class, except the Saudi Hijri calendar uses a table-based algorithm licensed from the Saudi government to calculate dates, can express dates to the year 1450 A.H., and does not support the HijriAdjustment property.

For more information about the Hijri calendar, see the HijriCalendar class.

Note   The UmAlQuraCalendar class shares code examples with the HijriCalendar class.
