[ComVisibleAttribute(false)]
public override int GetLeapMonth(
	int year,
	int era
)

Parameters

year
Type: System.Int32

An integer that represents the year.

era
Type: System.Int32

An integer that represents the era.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
A positive integer that indicates the leap month in the specified year and era. Alternatively, this method returns zero if the calendar does not support a leap month, or if year and era do not specify a leap year.

In a calendar that supports the notion of a leap month, the leap month can occur either after a particular month or after any month in a year. For example, the GetMonth method returns a number between 1 and 13 that indicates the month associated with a specified date. If there is a leap month between the eighth and ninth months of the year, the GetMonth method returns 8 for the eighth month, 9 for the leap eighth month, and 10 for the ninth month.
