Definition

Returns a DateTime object that is offset the specified number of months from the specified DateTime object.

public:
 override DateTime AddMonths(DateTime time, int months);
public override DateTime AddMonths (DateTime time, int months);
override this.AddMonths : DateTime * int -> DateTime
Public Overrides Function AddMonths (time As DateTime, months As Integer) As DateTime

Parameters

time
DateTime

The DateTime to which to add months.

months
Int32

The positive or negative number of months to add.

Returns

A DateTime object that represents the date yielded by adding the number of months specified by the months parameter to the date specified by the time parameter.

Exceptions

The resulting DateTime is outside the supported range.

months is less than -120,000 or greater than 120,000.

Remarks

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.AddMonths(time, months), time.Kind);
returnTime = DateTime.SpecifyKind(cal.AddMonths(time, months), time.Kind)
