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

Initializes a new instance of the DateTime structure to the specified year, month, day, hour, minute, second, and millisecond.

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

public DateTime(
	int year,
	int month,
	int day,
	int hour,
	int minute,
	int second,
	int millisecond
)

Parameters

year
Type: System.Int32
The year (1 through 9999).
month
Type: System.Int32
The month (1 through 12).
day
Type: System.Int32
The day (1 through the number of days in month).
hour
Type: System.Int32
The hours (0 through 23).
minute
Type: System.Int32
The minutes (0 through 59).
second
Type: System.Int32
The seconds (0 through 59).
millisecond
Type: System.Int32
The milliseconds (0 through 999).

This constructor interprets year, 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) constructor.

The Kind property is initialized to Unspecified.

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, Int32) constructor to instantiate a DateTime value.


DateTime date1 = new DateTime(2010, 8, 18, 16, 32, 18, 500);
Console.WriteLine(date1.ToString("M/dd/yyyy h:mm:ss.fff tt"));
// The example displays the following output:
//      8/18/2010 4:32:18.500 PM
