The CalendarSystem type exposes the following members.
Back to Top
Fetches a calendar system by its unique identifier. This provides full round-tripping of a calendar system. It is not guaranteed that calling this method twice with the same identifier will return identical references, but the references objects will be equal.
Returns the "absolute year" (the one used throughout most of the API, without respect to eras) from a year-of-era and an era.
Returns a Coptic calendar system, which defines every fourth year as leap, much like the Julian calendar. The year is broken down into 12 months, each 30 days in length. An extra period at the end of the year is either 5 or 6 days in length. In this implementation, it is considered a 13th month.
Returns the number of days in the given month within the given year.
Returns a pure proleptic Gregorian calendar system, which defines every fourth year as leap, unless the year is divisible by 100 and not by 400. This improves upon the Julian calendar leap year rule.
Returns a Hebrew calendar, as described at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hebrew_calendar. This is a purely mathematical calculator, applied proleptically to the period where the real calendar was observational.
Returns an Islamic, or Hijri, calendar system.
Returns a pure proleptic Julian calendar system, which defines every fourth year as a leap year. This implementation follows the leap year rule strictly, even for dates before 8 CE, where leap years were actually irregular.
The maximum valid month (inclusive) within this calendar in the given year. It is assumed that all calendars start with month 1 and go up to this month number in any valid year.
Returns the maximum valid year-of-era in the given era.
Returns the minimum valid year-of-era in the given era.
Returns a Persian (also known as Solar Hijri) calendar system. This is the main calendar in Iran and Afghanistan, and is also used in some other countries where Persian is spoken.
Returns whether or not the given year is a leap year in this calendar.
Converts this calendar system to text by simply returning its unique ID.(Overrides Object ToString .)
