DateTimeOffset.Year Property

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Gets the year component of the date represented by the current DateTimeOffset object.

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

public int Year { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The year component of the current DateTimeOffset object, expressed as an integer value between 0 and 9999.

The Year property is not affected by the value of the Offset property.

You can also create a string representation of a DateTimeOffset object's year component by calling the ToString method with the "y", "yy", or "yyyy" custom format specifiers.

The following example displays the year component of a DateTimeOffset value in four different ways:

  • By retrieving the value of the Year property.

  • By calling the ToString(String) method with the "y" format specifier.

  • By calling the ToString(String) method with the "yy" format specifier.

  • By calling the ToString(String) method with the "yyyy" format specifier.


DateTimeOffset theTime = new DateTimeOffset(2008, 2, 17, 9, 0, 0,
                             DateTimeOffset.Now.Offset);
outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The year component of {0} is {1}.",
                  theTime, theTime.Year) + "\n";

outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The year component of {0} is{1}.",
                  theTime, theTime.ToString(" y")) + "\n";

outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The year component of {0} is {1}.",
                  theTime, theTime.ToString("yy")) + "\n";

outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The year component of {0} is {1}.",
                  theTime, theTime.ToString("yyyy")) + "\n";
// The example produces the following output:
//    The year component of 2/17/2008 9:00:00 AM -07:00 is 2008.
//    The year component of 2/17/2008 9:00:00 AM -07:00 is 8.
//    The year component of 2/17/2008 9:00:00 AM -07:00 is 08.
//    The year component of 2/17/2008 9:00:00 AM -07:00 is 2008.
