Examples

The following code example calls IsLeapDay for the last day of the second month (February) for five years in each of the eras.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a HebrewCalendar.
   HebrewCalendar^ myCal = gcnew HebrewCalendar;
   
   // Creates a holder for the last day of the second month (February).
   int iLastDay;
   
   // Displays the header.
   Console::Write( "YEAR\t" );
   for ( int y = 5761; y <= 5765; y++ )
      Console::Write( "\t {0}", y );
   Console::WriteLine();
   
   // Checks five years in the current era.
   Console::Write( "CurrentEra:" );
   for ( int y = 5761; y <= 5765; y++ )
   {
      iLastDay = myCal->GetDaysInMonth( y, 2, HebrewCalendar::CurrentEra );
      Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapDay( y, 2, iLastDay, HebrewCalendar::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 = 5761; y <= 5765; y++ )
      {
         iLastDay = myCal->GetDaysInMonth( y, 2, myCal->Eras[ i ] );
         Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapDay( y, 2, iLastDay, myCal->Eras[ i ] ) );

      }
      Console::WriteLine();

   }
}

Remarks

This implementation of the HebrewCalendar class recognizes only the Hebrew years 5343 to 5999 (1583 to 2239 in the Gregorian calendar).

In every 19-year cycle that ends with a year that is evenly divisible by 19, the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th, and 19th years are leap years. A common year can have from 353 to 355 days, depending on the placement of Jewish holidays. A leap year can have from 383 to 385 days.

A leap day is a day that occurs only in a leap year. In the Hebrew calendar, the last day of Adar Alef and all the days in Adar Beit are considered leap days.
