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

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Overrides Function IsLeapDay ( _
    year As Integer, _
    month As Integer, _
    day As Integer, _
    era As Integer _
) As Boolean
public override bool IsLeapDay(
    int year,
    int month,
    int day,
    int era
)

Parameters

  • year
    Type: System.Int32
    An integer that represents the year.
  • month
    Type: System.Int32
    An integer from 1 to 12 that represents the month.
  • day
    Type: System.Int32
    An integer from 1 to 31 that represents the day.
  • era
    Type: System.Int32
    An integer that represents the era.

Return Value

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

Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

year is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

month is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

day is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

era is outside the range supported by the calendar.

Remarks

Leap years in the Korean 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.

A leap day is a day that occurs only in a leap year. For example, the 29th day of February is the only leap day.

Examples

The following example calls the IsLeapDay method for the last day of the second month (February) for five years in each of the eras.
