Definition

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

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

Parameters

year
Int32

An integer that represents the year.

month
Int32

An integer from 1 to 12 that represents the month.

era
Int32

An integer that represents the era.

Returns

This method always returns false, unless overridden by a derived class.

Exceptions

era is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

year is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

month is outside the range supported by the calendar.

Examples

The following code example calls IsLeapMonth for all the months in five years in the current era.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a GregorianCalendar.
   GregorianCalendar^ myCal = gcnew GregorianCalendar;
   
   // Checks all the months in five years in the current era.
   int iMonthsInYear;
   for ( int y = 2001; y <= 2005; y++ )
   {
      Console::Write( " {0}:\t", y );
      iMonthsInYear = myCal->GetMonthsInYear( y, GregorianCalendar::CurrentEra );
      for ( int m = 1; m <= iMonthsInYear; m++ )
         Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapMonth( y, m, GregorianCalendar::CurrentEra ) );
      Console::WriteLine();

   }
}

Remarks

A leap year in the Gregorian calendar is defined as a year that is evenly divisible by four, except if it is divisible by 100. However, years that are divisible by 400 are leap years. For example, the year 1900 was not a leap year, but the year 2000 was. A common year has 365 days and a leap year has 366 days.

A leap month is an entire month that occurs only in a leap year. The Gregorian calendar does not have any leap months.
