Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The day component, expressed as a value between 1 and 31.

The Day property always returns the day of the month in the Gregorian calendar, even if the current DateTime value was instantiated using some other calendar or if the current thread culture's default calendar is not the Gregorian calendar. To retrieve the day of the month of a particular date using some other calendar, call that calendar's Calendar.GetDayOfMonth method. The following example uses both the Day property and the HijriCalendar.GetDayOfMonth method to retrieve the day of the month for a DateTime value that is instantiated using the Hijri calendar.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

Similarly, the following example uses both the Day property and the HijriCalendar.GetDayOfMonth method to retrieve the day of the month when the current thread culture is ar-SA, which uses Hijri as its default calendar.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
