public:
 virtual property DateTime MinSupportedDateTime { DateTime get(); };
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComVisible(false)]
public override DateTime MinSupportedDateTime { get; }
member this.MinSupportedDateTime : DateTime
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property MinSupportedDateTime As DateTime

Property Value

The earliest date and time supported by the JapaneseCalendar type, which is equivalent to the first moment of September 8, 1868 C.E. in the Gregorian calendar.

Examples

The following example gets the earliest and latest dates supported by the calendar.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;

int main()
{
   // Create an instance of the calendar.
   JapaneseCalendar^ myCal = gcnew JapaneseCalendar;
   Console::WriteLine( myCal );
   
   // Create an instance of the GregorianCalendar.
   GregorianCalendar^ myGre = gcnew GregorianCalendar;
   
   // Display the MinSupportedDateTime and its equivalent in the GregorianCalendar.
   DateTime myMin = myCal->MinSupportedDateTime;
   Console::Write( "MinSupportedDateTime: {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4}", myCal->GetMonth( myMin ), myCal->GetDayOfMonth( myMin ), myCal->GetYear( myMin ) );
   Console::WriteLine( " (in Gregorian, {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4})", myGre->GetMonth( myMin ), myGre->GetDayOfMonth( myMin ), myGre->GetYear( myMin ) );
   
   // Display the MaxSupportedDateTime and its equivalent in the GregorianCalendar.
   DateTime myMax = myCal->MaxSupportedDateTime;
   Console::Write( "MaxSupportedDateTime: {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4}", myCal->GetMonth( myMax ), myCal->GetDayOfMonth( myMax ), myCal->GetYear( myMax ) );
   Console::WriteLine( " (in Gregorian, {0:D2}/{1:D2}/{2:D4})", myGre->GetMonth( myMax ), myGre->GetDayOfMonth( myMax ), myGre->GetYear( myMax ) );
}

Remarks

The earliest date supported by the JapaneseCalendar class is September 8, 1868 C.E., in the first year of the Meiji era. Ordinarily, date and time operations that use the JapaneseCalendar class throw an ArgumentOutOfRangeException exception for dates before this date. However, some members, such as the GetEra method, support dates from January 1, 1868 through September 7 in the year Meiji 1.
