'Declaration Public Function GetAbbreviatedEraName ( _ era As Integer _ ) As String
public string GetAbbreviatedEraName( int era )
The integer representing the era.
A string containing the abbreviated name of the specified era, if an abbreviation exists; or a string containing the full name of the era, if an abbreviation does not exist.
The era name is the name a calendar uses to refer to a period of time reckoned from a fixed point or event. For example, "A.D." or "C.E." is the current era in the Gregorian calendar.
The valid values for era are returned by the Eras property of the appropriate class derived from Calendar. For example, the JapaneseCalendar.Eras property returns an array of integers that represent the eras that are supported by this implementation.
In the JapaneseCalendar, the abbreviated era name is the first character of the full era name. This character is either the single-character case-insensitive Latin alphabet abbreviation or the single-character Kanji abbreviation.
