HijrahDate isLeapYear() method in Java with Example
  • Last Updated : 27 Feb, 2020

The isLeapYear() method of java.time.chrono.HijrahDate class is used to differentiate between the leap year and non leap year. If the year represented by this HijrahDate is a leap year, this method will return true, otherwise false.

Syntax:

public boolean isLeapYear()

Parameter: This method does not accept any argument as a parameter.

Return Value: This method returns Boolean value, i.e. true if the proleptic year is leap year otherwise false.

Below are the examples to illustrate the isLeapYear() method:



Example 1:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// isLeapYear() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
  
        // Creating and initializing
        // HijrahDate Object
        HijrahDate hidate
            = HijrahDate.of(1398, 03, 23);
  
        System.out.println("HijrahDate: "
                           + hidate.toString());
  
        // Checking if the date is leap year or not
        // by using isLeapYear() method
        boolean flag = hidate.isLeapYear();
  
        // Display the result
        if (flag)
            System.out.println("Leap year");
        else
            System.out.println("Not a leap year");
    }
}
Output:
HijrahDate: Hijrah-umalqura AH 1398-03-23
Not a leap year

Example 2:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// isLeapYear() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // Creating and initializing
        // HijrahDate Object
        HijrahDate hidate = HijrahDate.now();
  
        System.out.println("HijrahDate: "
                           + hidate.toString());
  
        // Checking if the date is leap year or not
        // by using isLeapYear() method
        boolean flag = hidate.isLeapYear();
  
        // Display the result
        if (flag)
            System.out.println("Leap year");
        else
            System.out.println("Not a leap year");
    }
}
Output:
HijrahDate: Hijrah-umalqura AH 1441-06-25
Leap year
