ThaiBuddhistCalendar.IsLeapYear Method (Int32, Int32)

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

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

Namespace: System.Globalization
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

Public Overrides Function IsLeapYear ( _
    year As Integer, _
    era As Integer _
) As Boolean
public override bool IsLeapYear(
    int year,
    int era
)

Parameters

Return Value

Type: System..::.Boolean
true if the specified year is a leap year; otherwise, false.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

year is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

era is outside the range supported by the calendar.

Remarks

Leap years in the Thai Buddhist 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.

Examples

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

Public Class Example
   Public Shared Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)
      ' Creates and initializes a ThaiBuddhistCalendar.
      Dim myCal As New ThaiBuddhistCalendar()

      ' Displays the header.
      outputBlock.Text &= "YEAR" + ControlChars.Tab
      Dim y As Integer
      For y = 2544 To 2548
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format(ControlChars.Tab + "{0}", y)
      Next 
      outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf

      ' Checks five years in the current era.
      outputBlock.Text &= "CurrentEra:"
      For y = 2544 To 2548
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format(ControlChars.Tab + "{0}", myCal.IsLeapYear(y, ThaiBuddhistCalendar.CurrentEra))
      Next

      ' Checks five years in each of the eras.
      For i As Integer = 0 To myCal.Eras.Length - 1
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Era {0}:" + ControlChars.Tab, myCal.Eras(i))
         For y = 2544 To 2548
