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

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Sub New ( _
    year As Integer, _
    month As Integer, _
    day As Integer, _
    hour As Integer, _
    minute As Integer, _
    second As Integer _
)
public DateTime(
    int year,
    int month,
    int day,
    int hour,
    int minute,
    int second
)

Parameters

  • day
    Type: System.Int32
    The day (1 through the number of days in month).

Remarks

The Kind property is initialized to Unspecified.

This constructor interprets the year, month, and day parameters as a year, month, and day in the Gregorian calendar. To instantiate a DateTime value by using the year, month, and day in another calendar, call the DateTime(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Calendar) constructor.

For applications in which a limited degree of time zone awareness is important, you can use the corresponding DateTimeOffset constructor.

Examples

The following example uses the DateTime constructor to instantiate a DateTime value..

Dim date1 As New Date(2010, 8, 18, 16, 32, 0)
outputBlock.Text &= date1.ToString() & vbCrLf
' The example displays the following output:
'      8/18/2010 4:32:00 PM
DateTime date1 = new DateTime(2010, 8, 18, 16, 32, 0);
outputBlock.Text += date1.ToString() + "\n";
// The example displays the following output:
//      8/18/2010 4:32:00 PM
