DateTime Constructor (Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, DateTimeKind)


Initializes a new instance of the DateTime structure to the specified year, month, day, hour, minute, second, and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) or local time.

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

	int year,
	int month,
	int day,
	int hour,
	int minute,
	int second,
	DateTimeKind kind


Type: System::Int32

The year (1 through 9999).

Type: System::Int32

The month (1 through 12).

Type: System::Int32

The day (1 through the number of days in month).

Type: System::Int32

The hours (0 through 23).

Type: System::Int32

The minutes (0 through 59).

Type: System::Int32

The seconds (0 through 59).

Type: System::DateTimeKind

One of the enumeration values that indicates whether year, month, day, hour, minute and second specify a local time, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), or neither.

Exception Condition

month is less than 1 or greater than 12.


day is less than 1 or greater than the number of days in month.

kind is not one of the DateTimeKind values.

This constructor interpretsyear, month, and day as a year, month, and day in the Gregorian calendar. To instantiate a DateTime value by using the year, month, and day in another calendar, call the DateTime(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Calendar^, DateTimeKind) constructor.

For applications in which portability of date and time data or a limited degree of time zone awareness is important, you can use the corresponding DateTimeOffset constructor.

The following example uses the DateTime(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, DateTimeKind) constructor to instantiate a DateTime value.
