Examples

The following code example calls the IsLeapDay method for the last day of the second month (February) for five years in each of the eras.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a HijriCalendar.
   HijriCalendar^ myCal = gcnew HijriCalendar;
   
   // Creates a holder for the last day of the second month (February).
   int iLastDay;
   
   // Displays the header.
   Console::Write( "YEAR\t" );
   for ( int y = 1421; y <= 1425; y++ )
      Console::Write( "\t {0}", y );
   Console::WriteLine();
   
   // Checks five years in the current era.
   Console::Write( "CurrentEra:" );
   for ( int y = 1421; y <= 1425; y++ )
   {
      iLastDay = myCal->GetDaysInMonth( y, 2, HijriCalendar::CurrentEra );
      Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapDay( y, 2, iLastDay, HijriCalendar::CurrentEra ) );

   }
   Console::WriteLine();
   
   // Checks five years in each of the eras.
   for ( int i = 0; i < myCal->Eras->Length; i++ )
   {
      Console::Write( "Era {0}:\t", myCal->Eras[ i ] );
      for ( int y = 1421; y <= 1425; y++ )
      {
         iLastDay = myCal->GetDaysInMonth( y, 2, myCal->Eras[ i ] );
         Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapDay( y, 2, iLastDay, myCal->Eras[ i ] ) );

      }
      Console::WriteLine();

   }
}

Remarks

In every 30-year cycle that ends with a year that is evenly divisible by 30, the 2nd, 5th, 7th, 10th, 13th, 16th, 18th, 21st, 24th, 26th, and 29th years are leap years. A common year has 354 days and a leap year has 355 days.

A leap day is a day that occurs only in a leap year. In the Hijri calendar, the 30th day of Zulhijjah is the only leap day.
