TaiwanCalendar.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 TaiwanCalendar.
   TaiwanCalendar^ myCal = gcnew TaiwanCalendar;
   
   // Displays the header.
   Console::Write( "YEAR\t" );
   for ( int y = 90; y <= 94; y++ )
      Console::Write( "\t {0}", y );
   Console::WriteLine();
   
   // Checks five years in the current era.
   Console::Write( "CurrentEra:" );
   for ( int y = 90; y <= 94; y++ )
      Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapYear( y, TaiwanCalendar::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 = 90; y <= 94; y++ )
         Console::Write( "\t {0}", myCal->IsLeapYear( y, myCal->Eras[ i ] ) );
      Console::WriteLine();

   }

Remarks

Leap years in the Taiwan calendar correspond to the same leap years in the Gregorian calendar. A leap year in the Gregorian calendar is defined as a Gregorian year that is evenly divisible by four, except if it is divisible by 100. However, Gregorian years that are divisible by 400 are leap years. A common year has 365 days and a leap year has 366 days.
