CSharp - Date Time DateTime Creation


DateTime defines constructors that accept integers for the year, month, day, hour, minute, second, and millisecond:

public DateTime (int year, int month, int day);
public DateTime (int year, int month, int day,
                 int hour, int minute, int second, int millisecond);

If you specify only a date, the time is implicitly set to midnight (0:00).

DateTime constructors accepts a DateTimeKind-an enum with the following values:

Value Meaning
Unspecified Unspecified is the default and it means that the DateTime is time-zone-agnostic.
Local Local means relative to the local time zone on the current computer.
UtcGMT time zone

A DateTime's Kind property returns its DateTimeKind.

DateTime's constructors can also accept a Calendar object as well.

You can specify a date using any of the Calendar subclasses defined in System.Globalization. For example:


using System;
class MainClass/* w ww. j  a v  a  2  s . c o m*/
   public static void Main(string[] args)
      DateTime d = new DateTime (5765, 1, 1,
                               new System.Globalization.HebrewCalendar());
      Console.WriteLine (d);
