JulianCalendar.IsLeapYear(Int32, Int32) Method

Definition

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

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

Parameters

year
Int32

An integer that represents the year.

era
Int32

An integer that represents the era.

Returns

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

Exceptions

year is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

era is outside the range supported by the calendar.

Examples

The following example calls IsLeapYear for five years in each of the eras.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a JulianCalendar.
   JulianCalendar^ myCal = gcnew JulianCalendar;
   
   // Displays the header.
   Console::Write( "YEAR\t" );
   for ( int y = 2001; y <= 2005; y++ )
      Console::Write( "\t {0}", y );
   Console::WriteLine();
   
   // Checks five years in the current era.
   Console::Write( "CurrentEra:" );
   for ( int y = 2001; y <= 2005; y++ )
      Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapYear( y, JulianCalendar::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 = 2001; y <= 2005; y++ )
         Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapYear( y, myCal->Eras[ i ] ) );
      Console::WriteLine();

   }
}

Remarks

Unlike the Gregorian calendar, the Julian calendar defines a leap year as a year that is evenly divisible by four with no exceptions. Therefore, the calendar is inaccurate by one day every 128 years. For example, the year 1999 was not a leap year, but the year 2000 was. A common year has 365 days and a leap year has 366 days.
