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

public override int TwoDigitYearMax { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The last year of a 100-year range that can be represented by a 2-digit year.


This calendar is read-only.


In a set operation, the Um Al Qura calendar year value is less than 1318 but not 99, or is greater than 1450.

This property allows a 2-digit year to be properly translated to a 4-digit year. For example, if this property is set to 1429, the 100-year range is from 1330 through 1429. Therefore, a 2-digit value of 30 is interpreted as 1330, while a 2-digit value of 29 is interpreted as 1429.

The initial value of this property is derived from the settings in the regional and language options portion of Control Panel. However, that information can change during the life of the AppDomain. The UmAlQuraCalendar class does not detect changes in the system settings automatically.

The special value 99 causes the ToFourDigitYear method to ignore the system settings and return the specified year unchanged.
