Examples

{
   Console::WriteLine( "   Era:        {0}", myCal->GetEra( myDT ) );
   Console::WriteLine( "   Year:       {0}", myCal->GetYear( myDT ) );
   Console::WriteLine( "   Month:      {0}", myCal->GetMonth( myDT ) );
   Console::WriteLine( "   DayOfYear:  {0}", myCal->GetDayOfYear( myDT ) );
   Console::WriteLine( "   DayOfMonth: {0}", myCal->GetDayOfMonth( myDT ) );
   Console::WriteLine( "   DayOfWeek:  {0}", myCal->GetDayOfWeek( myDT ) );
   Console::WriteLine();
}

int main()
{
   
   // Sets a DateTime to April 3, 2002 of the Gregorian calendar.
   DateTime myDT = DateTime(2002,4,3,gcnew GregorianCalendar);
   
   // Creates an instance of the JapaneseCalendar.
   JapaneseCalendar^ myCal = gcnew JapaneseCalendar;
   
   // Displays the values of the DateTime.
   Console::WriteLine( "April 3, 2002 of the Gregorian calendar equals the following in the Japanese calendar:" );
   DisplayValues( myCal, myDT );
   
   // Adds two years and ten months.
   myDT = myCal->AddYears( myDT, 2 );
   myDT = myCal->AddMonths( myDT, 10 );
   
   // Displays the values of the DateTime.
   Console::WriteLine( "After adding two years and ten months:" );
   DisplayValues( myCal, myDT );
}

Remarks

The day part of the resulting DateTime is affected if the resulting day is not a valid day in the resulting month of the resulting year. It is changed to the last valid day in the resulting month of the resulting year. The month part of the resulting DateTime remains the same as the specified DateTime. The era part of the resulting DateTime is affected if the resulting year is outside the era of the specified DateTime. The time-of-day part of the resulting DateTime remains the same as the specified DateTime.

For example, Nigatsu (February) has 28 days except during leap years when it has 29 days. If the specified date is the 29th day of Nigatsu (February) in a leap year and the value of years is 1, the resulting date will be the 28th day of Nigatsu (February) in the following year.

If years is negative, the resulting DateTime is earlier than the specified DateTime.

The Kind property of the returned DateTime value always equals DateTimeKind.Unspecified. You can preserve the Kind property of the time parameter by calling the DateTime.SpecifyKind method, as the following example shows.

returnTime = DateTime.SpecifyKind(cal.AddYears(time, years), time.Kind);
returnTime = DateTime.SpecifyKind(cal.AddYears(time, years), time.Kind)
