JulianCalendar.IsLeapMonth(Int32, Int32, Int32) Method

Definition

Determines whether the specified month in the specified year in the specified era is a leap month.

public:
 override bool IsLeapMonth(int year, int month, int era);
public override bool IsLeapMonth (int year, int month, int era);
override this.IsLeapMonth : int * int * int -> bool
Public Overrides Function IsLeapMonth (year As Integer, month As Integer, era As Integer) As Boolean

Parameters

year
Int32

An integer that represents the year.

month
Int32

An integer from 1 to 12 that represents the month.

era
Int32

An integer that represents the era.

Returns

This method always returns false, unless overridden by a derived class.

Exceptions

year is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

month is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

era is outside the range supported by the calendar.

Examples

The following example calls IsLeapMonth for all the months in five years in the current era.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a JulianCalendar.
   JulianCalendar^ myCal = gcnew JulianCalendar;
   
   // Checks all the months in five years in the current era.
   int iMonthsInYear;
   for ( int y = 2001; y <= 2005; y++ )
   {
      Console::Write( " {0}:\t", y );
      iMonthsInYear = myCal->GetMonthsInYear( y, JulianCalendar::CurrentEra );
      for ( int m = 1; m <= iMonthsInYear; m++ )
         Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapMonth( y, m, JulianCalendar::CurrentEra ) );
      Console::WriteLine();

   }
}

Remarks

Unlike the Gregorian calendar, the Julian calendar defines a leap year as a year that is evenly divisible by four with no exceptions. Therefore, the calendar is inaccurate by one day every 128 years. For example, the year 1999 was not a leap year, but the year 2000 was. A common year has 365 days and a leap year has 366 days.

A leap month is an entire month that occurs only in a leap year. The Julian calendar does not have any leap months.
