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 Int32 Int32 Int32

An integer that represents the year.

month
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

An integer from 1 to 13 that represents the month.

era
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

An integer that represents the era. Specify either HebrewEra or HebrewCalendar.Eras[Calendar.CurrentEra].

Returns

true if the specified month is a leap month; otherwise, false.

Exceptions

year, month, or era is outside the range supported by this 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 HebrewCalendar.
   HebrewCalendar^ myCal = gcnew HebrewCalendar;
   
   // Checks all the months in five years in the current era.
   int iMonthsInYear;
   for ( int y = 5761; y <= 5765; y++ )
   {
      Console::Write( " {0}:\t", y );
      iMonthsInYear = myCal->GetMonthsInYear( y, HebrewCalendar::CurrentEra );
      for ( int m = 1; m <= iMonthsInYear; m++ )
         Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapMonth( y, m, HebrewCalendar::CurrentEra ) );
      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 month is an entire month that occurs only in a leap year. In the Hebrew calendar, Adar Beit is the only leap month.
