Examples

The following code example prints a DateTime using a GregorianCalendar that is localized.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes three different CultureInfo.
   CultureInfo^ myCIdeDE = gcnew CultureInfo( "de-DE",false );
   CultureInfo^ myCIenUS = gcnew CultureInfo( "en-US",false );
   CultureInfo^ myCIfrFR = gcnew CultureInfo( "fr-FR",false );
   CultureInfo^ myCIruRU = gcnew CultureInfo( "ru-RU",false );
   
   // Creates a Localized GregorianCalendar.
   // GregorianCalendarTypes::Localized is the default when using the GregorianCalendar constructor with->Item[Out] parameters.
   Calendar^ myCal = gcnew GregorianCalendar;
   
   // Sets the DateTimeFormatInfo::Calendar property to a Localized GregorianCalendar.
   // Localized GregorianCalendar is the default calendar for de-DE, en-US, and fr-FR,
   myCIruRU->DateTimeFormat->Calendar = myCal;
   
   // Creates a DateTime.
   DateTime myDT = DateTime(2002,1,3,13,30,45);
   
   // Displays the DateTime.
   Console::WriteLine( "de-DE: {0}", myDT.ToString( "F", myCIdeDE ) );
   Console::WriteLine( "en-US: {0}", myDT.ToString( "F", myCIenUS ) );
   Console::WriteLine( "fr-FR: {0}", myDT.ToString( "F", myCIfrFR ) );
   Console::WriteLine( "ru-RU: {0}", myDT.ToString( "F", myCIruRU ) );
}
