Remarks

The days value is added to the specified DateTime. If days is negative, the resulting DateTime is earlier than the specified DateTime.

The month part of the resulting DateTime is affected if the resulting day is outside the month of the specified DateTime. The year part of the resulting DateTime is affected if the resulting month is outside the year of 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.

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.AddDays(time, days), time.Kind);
returnTime = DateTime.SpecifyKind(cal.AddDays(time, days), time.Kind)
