HijriCalendar.IsLeapYear(Int32, Int32) Method

Definition

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

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

Parameters

year
Int32

An integer that represents the year.

era
Int32

An integer that represents the era.

Returns

true if the specified year is a leap year; otherwise, false.

Exceptions

era is outside the range supported by this calendar.

-or-

year is outside the range supported by this calendar.

Examples

The following code example calls the IsLeapYear method 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;
   
   // 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++ )
      Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapYear( y, 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++ )
         Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapYear( y, 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.
