using System.Globalization;


public class SamplesHijriCalendar  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Sets a DateTime to April 3, 2002 of the Gregorian calendar.
      DateTime myDT = new DateTime( 2002, 4, 3, new GregorianCalendar() );

      // Creates an instance of the HijriCalendar.
      HijriCalendar myCal = new HijriCalendar();

      // Displays the values of the DateTime.
      Console.WriteLine( "April 3, 2002 of the Gregorian calendar equals the following in the Hijri calendar:" );
      DisplayValues( myCal, myDT );

      // Adds two years and ten months.
      myDT = myCal.AddYears( myDT, 2 );
      myDT = myCal.AddMonths( myDT, 10 );

      // Displays the values of the DateTime.
      Console.WriteLine( "After adding two years and ten months:" );
      DisplayValues( myCal, myDT );

   }

   public static void DisplayValues( Calendar myCal, DateTime myDT )  {
