DateTime.Year Property

Gets the year component of the date represented by this instance.

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

public int Year { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The year, between 1 and 9999.

The Year property returns the year of the current instance in the Gregorian calendar. It does not return the year using the default calendar of the current culture. To retrieve the year using a particular calendar, you can call that calendar's GetYear method, as the following code shows.

using System;
using System.Globalization;
using System.Threading;

public class YearMethodExample
{
    public static void Main()
    {
      // Initialize date variable and display year
      DateTime date1 = new DateTime(2008, 1, 1, 6, 32, 0);
      Console.WriteLine(date1.Year);                    // Displays 2008 

      // Set culture to th-TH
      Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("th-TH");
      Console.WriteLine(date1.Year);                    // Displays 2008 

      // display year using current culture's calendar 
      Calendar thaiCalendar = CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Calendar;
      Console.WriteLine(thaiCalendar.GetYear(date1));   // Displays 2551 

      // display year using Persian calendar
      PersianCalendar persianCalendar = new PersianCalendar();
      Console.WriteLine(persianCalendar.GetYear(date1)); // Displays 1386 
   }
}

The following example demonstrates the Year property.

			System.DateTime moment = new System.DateTime(
											1999, 1, 13, 3, 57, 32, 11);
			// Year gets 1999. 
			int year = moment.Year;
			
			// Month gets 1 (January). 
			int month = moment.Month;
			
			// Day gets 13. 
			int day = moment.Day;
			
			// Hour gets 3. 
			int hour = moment.Hour;
			
			// Minute gets 57. 
			int minute = moment.Minute;
			
			// Second gets 32. 
			int second = moment.Second;
			
			// Millisecond gets 11. 
			int millisecond = moment.Millisecond;
